In the first week of 2018, BBIS hosted its first Google Summit. The two day whole school workshops were designed to promote technology use to innovate learning. All BBIS staff had the chance to try out new tools - such as G Suite, Google classroom, Team Drives and App Inventor - which help collaborate, communicate and exchange information in the process of learning.

On Thursday 14 and Friday 15 December, it was my privilege to spend time with twenty-eight students from Grades 8 to 12 in a leadership training seminar / workshop. For some time, the Secondary School Student Counsellor, Mr Steve Gregory, has wanted to offer such a workshop and his dream has finally been realised. I thank him for his tenacity.

On Tuesday 12 December the Grade 11 and 12 IBCP students organised a trip to the 'Sprung Raum' trampolining centre in Tempelhof. The students practiced their somersaults, parkour, slack lining, slam-dunking, dodgeball and risk taking - falling into deep pits of foam.
After school time the students arranged a trip to the Gendarmenmarkt Christmas market.
They travelled by Regional-bahn and U-bahn and enjoyed a well-earned warm drink.

What do our students do once they leave BBIS? We do keep in touch with them, as it is always nice to see what our graduates are up to after leaving BBIS. Recently, we introduced Alex Koenig, a Boston based Ed-Tech specialist in this blog. https://www.bbis.de/what-do-our-students-do-once-they-leave-bbis

Understanding other cultures, being able to communicate with people around the world and trying to view things from different perspectives are really important to us when it comes to learning at BBIS. This is why we are very happy that our French Teachers invited FranceMobil to work with us. Ms Hinault has summarized what our students experienced:

On Thursday 19 October, as part of an on-going investigation into careers, the senior Personal and Professional Skills (PPS) class visited the Rathausmarkt to interview people. This was at the suggestion of one of the students, and Mr Milner then worked with the class to plan and prepare a useful trip.
