“Be the change that you want to see in the world.” (Mahatma Gandhi)

On Saturday, 16th of January, we had another global UMUGANDA day in P30 from 1pm to 5pm. As you all know the purpose behind UMUGANDA is to gather as a community in order to clean up and tidy the surroundings of daily (school) life. The main goal of the day in P30 was to redecorate certain parts of the school, such as the bathrooms or the hallways in the old building.

Another group of enthusiastic students completed their mediation training program this year. We were 10 kids eager to learn how to deal with conflicts and how to solve them. We stayed at the Jugendbildungsstätte for 4 nights and did various activities throughout the days. Each day was split up into two segments. First was the morning workshop after breakfast, then a long lunch break followed by an after noon workshop before dinner. In the mornings we did fun team-building exercises and discussed what mediation is and the theory behind it. We would also analyze each of the 5 phases of mediation and learn how to put them to use. To learn how to properly mediate, we had to play role plays.

Dear Parents,

thank you very much for being our audience yesterday (Thursday, 28 January 2016). We all are very happy and proud about the achievements of our students.

Man musste schnell sein vergangene Woche in der P23, wenn man von der weißen Pracht auf dem Schulhof noch was abbekommen wollte. Heutzutage ein seltenes Ereignis für unsere Kinder: Schnee satt - und er backte auch noch so schön! Der Unterricht der 4b wurde kurzerhand vorübergehend in den Schnee verlegt. Eine peaceful Schneeballschlacht im Fußballkäfig fand statt, drollige Schneemänner entstanden, ein riesiges Iglu wurde gebaut.

On February 9th it is Safer Internet Day, an annual initiative by the European Union. NMS teachers and educators have been asked to spend some extra time on this important topic next week. This year’s motto is ‘Play Your Part for a Better Internet’. Interested parents can check http://www.childnet.com/resources/safer-internet-day for more information in English, or http://www.klicksafe.de/ueber-klicksafe/safer-internet-day/sid-2016/ for information and resources in German.

Am Mittwoch, 27.01.2016 wurde, ohne die Teilnahme der Sport-Eliteschulen, die Berliner Runde Jugend trainiert für Olympia (JtfO), Tischtennis WK III (Jg. 01-04) gespielt. Insgesamt nahmen 15 Schulteams teil.

Auf dem heutigen Energie-Rundgang durch den Standort P30, auf dem einige repräsentative Räume unter Anleitung von Peter Heinrichs, Schulberater für Bildung für nachhaltige Entwicklung, Klimaschutz und Umweltbildung in Wilmersdorf-Charlottenburg, auf ihren Energieverbrauch (Strom und Wärme) und ihr Raumklima untersucht wurden, konnten Grundlagen des Optimierungsbedarfes der beiden Gebäude des Schulstandorts geklärt werden.

As we all know, Christmas is a time for giving and generosity. So with Christmas around the corner, we decided to give something to the refugees, who came a long, hard way to get here. We, the Refugee & Schule ohne Rassismus, Schule mit courage Workshop W1 came up with the idea of “Winter in a box.” Basically we collected gifts and items that they may need in every-day life, placed them in shoeboxes, wrapped them and gifted them to the refugees. We amazingly managed to collect +100 boxes! With the help of 8C, 8D and the 11th grades to pack and the Unesco AG and Abi & IB students for advertising, the boxes were delivered on the 22nd of December 2015 to the refugees in a sports hall on Prinzregentenstr.

We would like to thank everybody who donated even the smallest of presents to our charity project.
