BBIS BOARDING gets off to a great start of the school year 2018-19

Thursday, 20 September, 2018

When students and mentors from 30+ countries live and work in one community, exciting opportunities arise. The 20+ new international BBIS Boarding students arrived on Thursday, August 16, for an orientation programme and explored Kleinmachnow, Berlin and Potsdam during the weekend before the start of the 2018-19 school year.

Next, the entire boarding community enjoyed a team building weekend retreat from Friday, August 31 to Sunday, September 2, 2018 on the shores of the Scharmützel Lake in Bad Saarow southeast of Berlin. The students worked together, created short films, found ways to solve problems as a group and showed their remarkable creative talent at a boarding talent show. The 2018-19 BBIS Boarding community is very musical!

And finally we are enjoying our refurbished courtyard during the weekends and settling into BBIS Boarding life in Kleinmachnow. The courtyard offers ping-pong, table soccer/football and much more. A weekend BBQ and a pizza bake have brought the boarding community even closer together during the last two Saturdays. We are looking forward to more events in the future and to an enriching and fun year in BBIS Boarding. Thank you to the boarding students and boarding staff for their great energy.
