An interview with Inge Akker, social worker at BBS secondary school

Posted: Fri, 22/10/2021 - 11:17

The world is still in the midst of an on-going global pandemic, and though we can finally already see the light at the end of the tunnel, the last 18 months have taken a strain on all of us. With “World Mental Health Day” approaching on Sunday, 10 October, we caught up with Inge Akker, who works as the social worker at the secondary school in Granitzstraße to talk to her about mental health and well-being. Inge has been working at BBS since 2013. Until approximately one and a half years ago she was working at the primary school in Weinstraße.

Open House Primary School 2021

Posted: Wed, 08/09/2021 - 17:26

On 4th September we had more than 200 prospective parents visit our primary schools. Tours were held every 45min by our parents. It was a great day and we hope our future parents got a glimpse about BBS. The Monday after, our head of Hort (Sarah Vissers) and Andrew Comerford (Head of Primary) gave an insightful presentation on our pedagogy. You missed it? Don't worry, please download the file:

Our Primary School Open House will be held from 10am to 3pm on September 4, 2021. Unfortunately, we need to keep the number of applicant parents as low as possible, so we would like to ask you to sign up for a tour here.

The tour lasts about 45min. You can get first impressions of our school through our BBS parents who will accompany you.

Registrations are possible until September 2, 2 pm. Registrations received later will not be considered.

Our doors are open again! Please, come and join our Hort City. We have fun activities and trips for all our primary school children. We bake, we play outside, we play with water, we have Lego and other great workshops.

Twice a week the children are tested, but at the moment there is no masking requirement inside the school building for staff and children.

 

Corona Testing

BBS received more than 1000 Corona testing kits. Within one week we have had several teachers being trained in how to administer the tests. We are now offering tests for everybody on a Friday and/ or whenever they would like to have one. However, this is done on a voluntary basis and an offer for staff only.
