Grade 9 in the Brücke Museum

Grade 9 is currently exploring the challenging topic of early 20th century Expressionist poetry in their German lessons. In order to get a more visual experience of the era they went on a little culture Wandertag to Dahlem's excellent Brücke-Museum, where they "translated" the work of some of the greatest Expressionist painters into their own sonnets.

Barrier-free entrance for elementary school

We, the community of the Berlin Bilingual School Berlin, see the call of inclusive education as an important asset.
This already starts at the main entrance, which with its large staircase access at Weinstr. 1 is currently not barrier-free and urgently needs to be rebuilt. A ramp will ensure accessibility and provide equal access for all children and adults.
Our community consists of 290 children between the ages of 6 and 12, as well as their parents. We also care for children with motor impairments or who are dependent on a wheelchair.

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.
