    Our Grade 5s play an important role in our Primary School for being the leaders and role models for the other students. This week the spotlight was on them as they talked in assembly to the rest of their classmates and teachers about what they had learned by being away at camp in the first few weeks of the term…leadership, collaboration, trust and how it had helped them build stronger relationships with each other.

    I have just returned from Schloss Krochlendorf where I spent the night with the Grade 5 students. The focus of the week is to develop community, team work and build trust by taking part in different activities.

    A strength of our school is that we take inclusion seriously – and we have the staff awareness and expertise to do so. Here is Jonathan Matthew-Hirsch’s blog contribution on the topic. Glad to have him leading the Student Support Services!

    Congratulations to our Peacemakers, who have been trained and are now supporting the other students on the playground. On Wednesday (International Peace Day) they led our Primary School assembly and made us all aware of what being peaceful means to us all.

    The students now seem to be settled into the routine of school and have got used to being in their new classes. This morning we had our first Fire Drill of the year and they all did exactly what they were supposed to do…it was extremely successful! We have these drills routinely throughout the year, some announced and some as a surprise as it is such an important safety issue.

    Welcome to all our new students and families who are joining the Primary school this year. I hope that you will enjoy being in our school and that you also enjoy the excitement of living in Berlin.
