The Kangaroo Maths competition has 6 million participants from over 70 countries. This year 11000 students in Germany competed. On the 15th March, 168 students from Primary and Secondary took part. As a school, there were three 1st prizes (Solène and Luise in grade 2, and Nicolai in 8). One 2nd prize (Quinn in grade 7), and five 3rd prizes (Oscar in grade 3, Sofiya and Rikya in grade 6, Tommaso in grade 7, and Michael in grade 8).
Our Spanish teachers, Ms Adame and Mr Sanchez-Sanchez invited Hispanic members of staff (Kitchen and Primary School) to both 10th grade lessons. The students got the chance to learn more about Ms Müller’s (from Peru) and Mr Pola-Rivera’s (from Puerto Rico) migration process and life in Berlin. The talk was in Spanish only!
Rania Reda, founder and CEO of Augmania, came to speak to Grade 6 and 7 students about her experience working in the tech industry. With 22 years of invaluable and varied experience under her belt, she gave students an insight into the history of her company and the current developments in Augmented & Virtual Reality technologies.
A well-deserved reward! Last week the students from the Secondary French Club have taken the official French Language Diploma “DELF” (diplôme d’études en langue française), which they have prepared throughout the year during the French club. The DELF is a certification of French-language abilities for non-native speakers administered by the International Centre for French Studies. Results will be announced after two months, meanwhile the students can relax and enjoy typical French pastries at “Les Pâtisseries de Sébastien”.
