Anlässlich der zunehmenden Verbreitung des Coronavirus hat die Senatsverwaltung für Bildung, Jugend und Familie eine Informationsseite eingerichtet, die ständig aktualisiert wird:

Last summer, one of our students was diagnosed with cancer and had to stay in the hospital for treatment. An opportunity, however, became available for the student to continue to participate in lessons at school; in the form of a little robot called `Ivy`. Ivy could be used as an avatar. There are 43 of these robots in Germany, 8 of them in the Berlin Charité.

After getting in contact with the Charité and having solved all issues regarding data protection, insurance, storage and permission letters of the students and teachers involved, the NMS school management cleared the use of Ivy with the school authorities… who agreed immediately. From that point on, Ivy the Robot took part mainly in English and Math lessons. A big thanks to the teachers involved who right away supported the use of `Ivy` in their lessons.

Our school’s Bauhaus Class consisting of 18 Y10 students, continued to work at Bauhaus Temporary interactively. After having developed the actual exhibition DAS BAUHAUS WAR EINE SCHULE, they created short tutorials at work stations, explaining selected exercises of the preliminary course of the Bauhaus of the 1920s.

Ms Sajid had the idea of collecting messages from our students, and the NMS staff created a collage of all the lovely photos that we received and would like to show it on the website. This is zoomable.

We are staying at home

 It is the NMS students (and a few teachers) sharing the message that we are staying home, in their native language. We think that this collage by and for our students illustrates the strength and creativity of the global NMS community. We hope that everyone takes the message seriously and stays at home, for themselves and for others.

This picture came a little later. It is also zoomable (message in Hindi). We have room for more of your messages here!!


NMS has created a Padlet with material for online learning.  The NMS staff will share apps and tools that may be useful for online learning purposes. Descriptions in German, English, or both

The Padlet will be  continuously updated with new material and can be found by using the padlet embed below, clicking the title above, or at

Made with Padlet

by Lena Kirchner MUN- Student Officer

Last week, a group of NMS students participated in the Berlin Model United Nations (BERMUN) conference at the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung. Over the course of three days,more than 150 students from Berlin, other parts of Europe as well as Mexico, explored thetopic of “Protecting the Freedom of Expression while confronting Censorship”.


At this year’s Bermun2, hosted by the John F. Kennedy School, students from NMS served as delegates to the United States and Azerbaijan in a variety of panels.

There is now an opportunity open to struggling students in German, English and Sciences as part of the electives offered by the school.

If you feel your child can benefit from extra support in these subjects, kindly request them to register for these classes. The students still have a week to change their electives.
