On the 12th of January 2014 the new B24 school club was opened. Before this however the school club at the B24 was colorless and uninviting. So our ninth grade class was called upon to renovate the school club. Soon the school club had comfortable furniture, desks for playing chess, a new coat of paint on the wall and lockers to store belongings. In addition to make this event ever more special our own 9e even contributed by creating, under the guidance of our art teacher Mrs. Schulte, an art Exhibition to celebrate the occasion. This is the story of the new B24 school club.

 As you may have heard from the press as of last school year class trips are subject to a new financial ruling.

This has led to a situation where class trips can only be organized within the means of the budget that has been allocated for miscellaneous expenses to the teachers. In 2014 this budget was around 2000 Euros for the entire school; for 2015 this budget has yet to be communicated to us.

The school conference of NMS has discussed the situation thoroughly during its last session in December and has asked the school development group to identify legally sound possibilities which allow for a continuation of the school's extensive school trip program. All of the concerned parties expressed their desire to make this possible.

After receiving the report the teachers conference and the school conference will decide on the new principles of the class trip program.
