Message from the Head
Dear Parents and Students, dear Friends of NMS, dear colleagues,
Just before we are heading what promises to be sunny May weekend, I would like to send you a brief message form the Head.
First of all, I have had a very enjoyable MADIBA WEEK, for the second time with guests from our partner, the Mandela
The NMS School Conference
In my view this is a very important step towards establishing the State International School as a school type of its own kind in Berlin. We are now waiting for the SenBJW to implement this transition and will discuss how we, as the NMS school community, want to contribute to this and steer the process.
Kind regards to you all,
Schulleiter/Head of School
One of the many activities this week in the primary school in celebration of Madiba Week was 6C's bake sale. And where better to donate the money than Africa? Specifically, to the World Wildlife Fund to help protect African lions. This will be the second donation from 6C to the WWF fund this year as the children have a big interest in animals and feel a strong sense of responsibility towards the environment. We’re looking forward to a visit from Brit Reichelt-Zohlo, NMS parent and WWF lion expert, who will be telling 6C about her recent trip to Africa visiting a lion conservation project there. Thanks to 6C parents and children for the baking and selling, and to everyone who bought the very delicious cake!
