Dear BMS families

It is coming to that time of year when some of you may be leaving the BMS community on a family adventure elsewhere.


We, the School Counsellors (Blanka and Christy) will be hosting an information session on the topic of 'Preparing Kids to Move Abroad' on Tuesday morning the 16th of June at 08:30am. We will be discussing various topics such as preparing to move and the possible challenges, along with a variety of positive strategy ideas.


If you are interested in attending the session please contact Blanka, blanka.leeker@metropolitanschool.com or, Christy christy.jarvis@metropolitanschool.com outlining which age group/s (Early Years, Primary School, Secondary School) you are interested in.


We look forward to hearing from you!

´Solo e Tutti´ Concert at Museum Pankow

Grade 3 students were treated to a special concert today at Museum Pankow! It was extra special as some of our students featured in the concert itself! Special thanks to Mrs. Friedlander who coordinated this opportunity for the Grade 3 students and who visited all our Grade 3 classes to host workshops in preparation for the concert today!
