Festival of Nation Impression

In-between setting up the stands in a storm on Friday afternoon and Sunday’s downpour, we were fortunate to have the sun shine on our fabulous 2018 Festival of Nations. And what a day it was! We are proud to be able to say that it was a big success. The atmosphere was amazing, and the stands were incredible. Sure, there were some hiccups along the way at times, but the end result was raising a HUGE sum of money for the school – over €21,000 was raised on the day!! And there was a real party feeling that meant it truly felt like we were celebrating our unique community.

…There are A LOT of Thank Yous…

Am 7. Juni startete unser Schulsportverein SCI-NMS e.V. mit 3 Teams bei der Berliner Team-Staffel über 5 x 5 km im Tiergarten. In der Tageswertung starteten über 1.900 Teams.

Unser Jugendteam mit Isabel Zander Zeidam, Elias Dorner, Justus und Ben Schubert und Pepijn Akkermans gewannen in ihrer Altersklasse Platz 2. In den anderen beiden Teams starteten gemeinsam Eltern, Kolleginnen und Kollegen und Schüler. Hier wurden in der Wertung die Plätze 339 und 354, knapp 10 Minuten langsamer als unser Jugendteam belegt. Vielen Dank an Alexis Figeac, Jonah Spiller, Isaac Brown, Franziska Wandtke, Stefanie Preidl, Florentine Baumann, Marco Cwielong, Charles Spiller und Jörg Fraikin.

Recently, some of our IB Diploma Visual Arts  students painted the 10 Learner Profile attributes around the IB Office which livens up the corner on the first floor of the new building at P30.  The IB Learner Profile is a list of ten attributes valued by all IB World Schools and by the NMS community as a whole as characteristics which we believe all students at NMS strive to have.  All IB courses use the Learner Profile as the basis for learning and support the idea that “by helping create people who believe in these attributes we can help create responsible members of local, national and global communities.” (IBO website). All learners at NMS strive to meet these attributes and are: inquirers, thinkers, carers, open-minded, knowledgeable, risk-takers, communicators, balanced, principled and reflective.

On the following dates will be no lessons:
