Streik Aufruf image

This nationwide call was followed by 300 students in Berlin on Friday, December 14, 2018, including about 40 students from the Secondary of Nelson Mandela International School. When asked why they supported the call, there was a unanimous response among those present: Our generation of parents and grandparents are responsible for the scale of climate change. As long as they are still in their posts, they have the chance to do something about it. We want to point out that the climate task for us, the young generation, will only grow bigger and more impossible with each and every day. We will be left to deal with the prior generation's excessive waste of the earth's resources, something for which we were not responsible.

“Advent, Advent, die Erde brennt.” Companies, which for example wrap cucumbers in foil, must be held responsible for this pollution because consumers have no choice in the matter: either they refuse to buy such cucumbers in the supermarket, or they buy them and become complicit in global pollution. In other words, consumers are forced to buy garbage. Ths has to stop. Plastic is a great material for making things last. As disposable packaging, it destroys lives.

Planetarium Bild Seifenblasen

Die Stiftung Planetarium war vom 26. bis 30. November zu Besuch in der Primary und hat den Kindern von der Aula aus Reisen zu Sternen, Planeten und der Raumstation ISS ermöglicht. 

Unter fachkundiger Anleitung haben wir gelernt, warum Seifenblasen in der Schwerelosigkeit nicht platzen, wo in der ISS der beste und Platz zum chillen ist und warum Alexander Gerst der beste Torwart im Weltall ist...

Vielen Dank an Martin Wüsthoff und Fabian Mattig sowie das gesamte Team der Stiftung Planetarium, die uns auf den abenteuerlichen Reisen durch‘s Weltall kompetent und mit viel Engagement begleitet haben!

Das war bestimmt nicht der letzte Ausflug zu fernen Planeten!   (E. Gömüsay)

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…
