    From Friday 27 April – Friday 18 May our Grade 12 students sat for their final IBDP examinations. Over a grueling three weeks, our 84 candidates sat for a total of 32 papers across 13 subjects, ending with Further Mathematics HL Paper 2 taken by Maxim who was ‘the last man standing’.  Now that the examinations are over, the Grade 12 cohort can breathe a sigh of relief and look forward with great excitement to the Graduation Ceremony and celebrations on Friday 25 May.

    The Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award team had a very successful practise expedition over the weekend. Supervised by Ms Barker, Mr Nolan, Ms Thach and Mr Stiles, the 13 Grade 9 participants hiked an impressive 22 km in perfect sunshine on the Saturday. They setup camp at Dreilinden where they prepared and cooked meals of pasta and gnocchi. The next morning, after reflecting on what had gone well on day 1 and what could be improved on day 2, they set out for BBIS.

    No matter what country you grew up in, you probably had lessons in mathematics, science and your home language. But did your school curriculum include how to deal with change or how to develop resilience? Did your lessons focus on how to build healthy relationships? Probably not. We are starting to change this for our students.

    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.
