We are finally there! Our secondary school is moving to Granitzstr! After the October holidays all students - from grade 7 to their Abitur - will be taught from our new building in Pankow. It is a small building in the heart of East Berlin and it has been renovated during the last months for our secondary school. We are very happy to have found this building and that we are finally moving into our new home.
BBS received more than 1000 Corona testing kits. Within one week we have had several teachers being trained in how to administer the tests. We are now offering tests for everybody on a Friday and/ or whenever they would like to have one. However, this is done on a voluntary basis and an offer for staff only.
We - the Berlin Bilingual Secondary School - are looking for a teacher in German and a further subject in social sciences!
Dear BBS Community,
Since today is the last school day of particularly challenging year, we really want to take this opportunity to send a message of sincere gratitude to BBS parents, students and staff.
Without your great support the months between March and June would not have been possible. Your feedback and help in navigating the crisis has been priceless. Thank you!
To our incredible students
This year's diversity week focus' has been mental health. An important topic to discuss with our students already from an early age onwards - we are all diferent and don't necessarily see the things the same way as our friends or family does. An example: During music lessons our students explored reading music rhythms and melodies without their sense of sight, discovered Braille music notation and collaborated on mute compositions, working togehter to create music without speaking.
We are very happy to host an exhibition by the Deutsche Gesellschaft e.V. for our primary and secondary school called "Der Blick gegen das Vergessene gerichtet". This exhibition has been developed by secondary students from France, Poland and Germany who talked about the difficult history of Europe and how important peace is, not only in Europe but around the world.

The last months have been very difficult for all people and schools around the world and we are gladly looking forward to the end of 2020. At the moment, we remain in the classification "YELLOW", meaning that lessons take place, and only children of the gymnasiale Oberstufe are wearing masks. However, we have moved successfully moved into Granitzstr. with our secondary school and we are now leaving behind Weissensee. Please, see our facebook profile for some images.
We have been in contact with the Haus der Statistik close to Alexanderplatz for more than a year now and BBS has successfully established a cooperation with the initiatives taking place at this virbrant place. Maybe one day we will have another school at "Haus der Statistik". For now, please join us in our first BBS art exhibitionat HdS on 20th Sept from 3 until 6pm.
BBS has officially started their staff introduction week. We started off with our aims for 2020/2021, hygiene & data & child protection trainings and last but certainly not least with a training on gender and sexuality. Next week Monday we will see all students return to classes. However, in order to keep a safe environment everybody should wear a mask while walking along the hallways and visiting the toilets. Thank you!
