On 4th September we had more than 200 prospective parents visit our primary schools. Tours were held every 45min by our parents. It was a great day and we hope our future parents got a glimpse about BBS. The Monday after, our head of Hort (Sarah Vissers) and Andrew Comerford (Head of Primary) gave an insightful presentation on our pedagogy. You missed it? Don't worry, please download the file:

"When we are born as kids we don't care about colour"
Hello, we are the students of Berlin Bilingual School.
There are many types of discrimination - not only on the basis of skin colour or origin, but also on the basis of disability, religious affiliation or language.
We reject all of this - we want to live and learn together peacefully. Therefore we applied for the title "School without racism - school with courage".
Here a link to the radio show RADIJOJO recorded at our big "School without racism" Ceremony last year.
We are very happy to announce that our primary students accumulated a whopping amount of 5.200 EUR while running hundreds of laps in the „Kinderverkehrsschule“ Berlin. This year we selected a foundation based in Liberia/ Berlin („Growing Tree Liberia“) and „Unter Druck“, an association based in Berlin and working with homeless people. Growing Tree Liberia works in an international context with children and orphans who may not have the means otherwise to attend school.

Just in time for our Winterfest, we received our new merchandise for the secondary school students.
Since August we have successfully established a cooperation with the Berlin based start-up company 2ally.me. Their brand focusses on individuality, style and an eco-friendly production line. https://2ally.me/
BBS held annual second, annual, STE(Art)M week this November and one cannot help be inspired by the excitement and motivation generated by both students and adults alike. Our theme, The Moon - Stepping Stone to the Cosmo's, kicked off with an Art and Music display in our canteen. Student work, as well as some world-renowned projects, were on display.
Every year we have a week run dedicated to an ecological topic. This year’s focus was „the bee“. Especially in our primary school, our students learned about making honey, insects and bees as well as the week included many fun outings, like to the Naturkundemuseum of Berlin. However, this did not stop grade 8a who used the packaging of UHT milk cartons from the staff kitchen to learn about drypoint etching technique.
The Alba-Oberschulliga Basketball tournaments are back underway for school year 2019/20 and once again BBS will be represented by 3 teams. Our WK III girls who travelled to the Albert Schweizer Gymnasium on Wednesday the 23rd of October to take on the aforementioned school as well as the Alfred Nobel Schule in first round action.
