Alessia loves singing, its her passion. For 1 1/2 years she has been part of the Berliner Children's Choir. She wanted to sing more and develop her singing skills further, so on Monday, Alessia was happy to have received an Invitation for an audition at the Staatsopera.

BMS Girls’ Chess Team: “Keeping Pace with Older Opponents“
A match of David versus Goliath is also exciting when watching chess. This was the situation with the BMS Girl’s Chess Team on January 12th, 2016, at the annual Berlin School Chess Championships in rapid play. Countless spectators watched our team, comprised of Naomi Faber from Grade 8, Artemis Sahm-Petit from Grade 5, Mila Jovanovic and Lenka Küppers hailing from Grade 3, and Alzbeta Kotkova from Grade 1.
Considering they competed strictly against older students from higher grade levels, the chess team’s placement of 7 out of 14 highlights their impressive performance. At the top, Naomi confirmed her ability to lead and demonstrated that her solo victory and trophy in Summer 2015 was no coincidence. Surrounded by avid onlookers, the 6-year-old Alzbeta defeated players more than twice her age. Mila, Lenka, and Artemis contributed strong performances and constantly surprised opponents with deft tactics and strategy.
We are so happy for our students and offer them our hearty congratulations.
