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.

Yesterday, on Thursday, 9e of B24 went to the Clever@TU-Berlin Lab. As we at the B24 don´t have a lab, we were very excited to see what it is like to be in a real science Lab.  We met up at 9 am at the Technical University and were welcomed by Dr. Merkel, the Head of the Lab and the inventor of the project “chemistry-experiments for secondary school students in an academical lab environment at the TU Berlin”. Even though some where late ; ), we managed to get into the lab by 9.10 am. Then an assistant of Dr. Merkel, Julia, handed us lab coats and safety goggles....

Recently in the NMS Vege garden at P23 we had an expert come to visit and check on the progress of the garden, whilst also teaching the students valuable lessons about caring and harvesting the vegetables. So far it’s been quite successful as we have already harvested some radishes, strawberries and various salads. We hope to continue to grow the garden together and hopefully in the future the kids will also take some valuable life skills with them.

Mit einem herausragenden (fast unglaublichen) Erfolg für unsere Schülerinnen und Schüler endete der diesjährige Wilmersdorfer Staffeltag
am 2. Mai im Stadion Wilmersdorf über je 6 x 400 m. Insgesamt fanden 5 Staffelrennen in unterschiedlichen Altersklassen statt. Unsere Teams gewannen 3 x Platz 1, 1 x Platz 2 und dazu einen 5. Platz. Damit gelang nach 2016, 2017 auch mit 2018 der 3. Gesamtsieg in Folge und der endgültige Gewinn des Wanderpokals für unsere Schule. Nun werden noch die Namen all unserer Teilnehmer*innen auf dem Pokal eingraviert.

Herzlichen Glückwunsch allen unseren erfolgreichen Teilnehmer*innen!

On the 3rd week of May 2018, three journalists came to 5B in Pfalzburgerstrasse 23 because we were learning how to write newspaper articles. They were Ms. Janelle Dumalaon from Deutsche Welle, Ms. Carolyn Malasig who writes online articles for Rappler and Forbes Company, and Mr. Derek Scally, a writer for The Irish Times. They talked about their jobs and gave us tips on how to be good writers and reporters. They also showed us some articles and videos of the work that they do. It was a very interesting week for us.
