On Friday, November 9th, the BCS Kindergarten & Preschool celebrated St. Martin’s Lantern Festival where children, families and teachers came together to celebrate the tradition of sharing and exhibiting generosity within our community. Sharing one’s light is something that children begin to learn very early on in life. At BCS, we are fortunate to have a vital part in teaching the importance of sharing to children on a daily basis. From sharing a crayon to sharing a hug or kind word to a friend in need, it all begins as a child.
Short report from our students:
Taiwan was a very fun and interesting trip, much different than trips done before. Taipei is not like many other places that you can visit. We got to experience not just the tourist attractions of Taipei, but the actual experience from someone around our age. We got to see the international school, learned about their day and what students like to do.
Four days of professional development for our first cohort of teachers based on those values passed by. In Zagreb the BCS Cross Campus collaboration based on familylab pedagogical values inspired by Jesper Juul were delivered by psychologists and familylab trainer Dusanka Kosanovic.
The Abitur History classes (11th and 12th grades) spent the final fleeting moments of school before the autumn break visiting the Märkisches Museum on October 19th. Here the students learned about the beginnings and development of Berlin during the Middle Ages, which will serve as a basis for their study of the importance of towns for communal freedom during this period. At the same time, students used this opportunity to examine the decision-making process that goes into preparing a museum exhibition.
