School of the Cosmopolitans

7th annual BCS Geography Bee on Tuesday the 7th of June 2022

Having prepared for the last couple weeks, each social studies class selected two representatives – based on their knowledge of political geography – to compete in the school-wide Geography Bee (grades 6-10). For the main event in the school courtyard, with their classmates cheering and playing along from the audience, students were tested on their knowledge of: 

  • major German cities and federal states 
  • European countries and their capitals 
  • North, Central and South American countries and their capitals.  

Although all twenty of the original contestants deserve congratulations for making it this far, only the final three were able to go home with a geography-themed prize. The winners were: 

1. Sarin

2. Laura

3. Guy

For students who wish to prepare for the 8thannual BCS Geography Bee in 2023, the quiz will include Asian and Oceanian countries and capitals in addition to Germany and Europe. 

Grade 9 Spanish awarded at the State Language Competition

We are very proud of grade 9 Spanish class who attended on the 18.05 the Award Ceremony of the “Bundeswettbewerb Fremdsprachen”. They won a price for their movie “La cena misteriosa” (the mysterious dinner), which they have been creating all together this year with the support of their teacher Mario Sanchez. Two students had the chance to go on stage to speak about their movie and also to get awarded from a represantor of the Mexican Ambassy. Felicidades ! Congratulations to all of them !

Students get to know the French speaking world

Grade 7 get to know the French-speaking world 

We went to the French Centre in Berlin with Grade 7. The Centre Français de Berlin welcomed BCS 7th Graders for their new workshop on the French-speaking world (La Francophonie in French). Students questioned their own native and foreign languages and discovered the diversity of countries and cultures that share the French language as well as the history of colonization behind it.
