Welcome (back) to the New School Year 2014-15

Dear Students, Colleagues, Parents and Friends of NMS,

It is my pleasure to welcome you (back) to NMS as the new school year is starting. I hope all of you had a joyful and relaxing summer vacation and look forward now to launching a new year of learning together.

Most of our new members of staff have arrived and we had a vibrant reception for them this morning. A total of 17 new international and German teachers will start at our school, eight of them at secondary, four at primary and five teacher trainees. Two more teachers – one for each section – will start a little later. In addition, five social pedagogues have joined our team.

In the office a large amount of enrollment applications have been processed for the New Year and I’d like to thank everybody involved for their energy and patience with the process. With only a rather limited number of places available for new students and in spite of a clearly determined admission procedure in place, this is not an easy task. Unfortunately, we were not able to place all students that were generally eligible and kindly ask for those families’ understanding. With all newcomers we will have way above 1300 students at the school. Hence, we are pleased that a number of renovations have been ongoing at all three sites, especially at Babelsberger Straße 24/25 where, for instance, all classrooms were freshly painted.

Let me finish for now with wishing us all an energetic start into a fruitful and inspiring new school year.

With kind regards,

Christian Nitschke
Head of School
