An interview with Inge Akker, social worker at BBS secondary school

The world is still in the midst of an on-going global pandemic, and though we can finally already see the light at the end of the tunnel, the last 18 months have taken a strain on all of us. With “World Mental Health Day” approaching on Sunday, 10 October, we caught up with Inge Akker, who works as the social worker at the secondary school in Granitzstraße to talk to her about mental health and well-being. Inge has been working at BBS since 2013. Until approximately one and a half years ago she was working at the primary school in Weinstraße.

Diversity Week 2020

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.

If we can't go to the museum, the museum comes to us.

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.
