    Profound learning is not restricted to the classroom. This year, BBIS created the whole-school position of Coordinator of Outdoor Learning. While still evolving, the idea is to take students of all ages beyond BBIS’ gates to learn, experientially, in Kleinmachnow, Berlin and beyond. We already do this but we wish to increase the opportunities and to forge strong, meaningful links with the curriculum.

    From my perspective, it is fascinating to observe how our students develop over the years, and I find it particularly interesting to see what topics they choose for their Personal Project in grade 10, the 5th year of the Middle Years Programme.The Personal Project is one of the most challenging - and also most rewarding - parts of our students’ journey, and Elizabeth Appleton, who is the Personal Project Coordinator at BBIS, has been a key player in helping the students accomplish their goals
