The basic principle of MUN is simulating the process and works of the United Nations, while exploring relevant and current topics that affect our world. The MUN group at NMS meets biweekly for mock debates. Students slip into the role of delegates from different countries and search for solutions to global problems, while pursuing their country’s agenda.

Every now and then we go to conferences, which are our mock debates on a big scale. We are regular and established members of BERMUN I and II, as well as BALMUN and OLMUN, which take place in Berlin, Rostock and Oldenburg, respectively.

This September we are planning on hosting our own MUN conference (NELMUN) over the course of three days, with the banner topic “Global cooperation for a more sustainable and innovative future”. Schools can register under:

We happily welcome every school that wants to take part in our conference.

To the students or parents interested in helping out the NELMUN conference, please contact us under:

Congratulations to all students who graduated in 2017!

During the holidays the children were looked after by the amazing educator team and enjoyed lots of different activities including: making seascape glass jars; bowling; museum trips; a trip to the Verkehrsschule; learning to rock climb; crafting, drawing and painting; learning self defence; minigolf; cooking and baking; water activities; lego building; den building; caterpillar discovering and, a trip to our caterers at Z Catering, where we saw how our lunch is made in huge vats as big as bath tubs. We also got to make our own pizza. Lecker!!

In the last days, in the (finally) lovely weather the children had fun splashing around in the school yard with water balloons!

We hope you all have a great start to the new year and welcome to all the new children starting this year.

Liebe Grüße from the Educator teams of B24 and P23!

NMS is preparing for the implementation of the new Basiscurriculum Medienbildung (media education) next school year. Teachers have attended workshops on this topic and the internal curriculum is nearly finished. One element that seems to have been forgotten in the Berlin curriculum is learning about algorithms and basic computer science, even though the KMK (Kultusministerkonferenz) clearly states that this is an important skill in the 21st century, one that has to be taught by German schools, starting in primary.


Hier ist die Kontaktliste.

  • Babelsberger Straße 24-25 (B24), Flex-10
