Dear Parents, dear Students, dear Colleagues,

the first week of school has already flown by, and we think you would appreciate an up-date on how things are going at the NMS School.

The start of school ceremony – or Einschulung – for first graders was touching. We hope that all who attended enjoyed the festivities on Saturday, 10 September. The school team extends a warm welcome to all the new members. We are looking forward to working closeley with all of you to ensure the best possible educational experience for our students.

A word on the management: most of you are aware that the school director and deputy positions have yet to be confirmed. NMS and the Berlin school administration have established an interim team under the leadership of Matthias Rösner, head of Sportschule im Olympiapark, with Lutz Mannes as upper secondary coordinator, Sarah Dent as middle school coordinator and Ina Claussen as primary school principal. They are supported by Dr. Cordelia Premkumar and Charles Spiller for the IB program.

Furthermore the GEV representatives are available to answer any particular questions you might have. You can reach them by telephone or e-mail.

We are looking forward to a wonderful Festival of Nations, at which we hope to meet and welcome you more personally, as we celebrate the truly international spirit of our school.

Best wishes from all of us,

Sarah Dent, Lutz Mannes & Ina Claussen
