    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.
