First Day of School at the ibsm

Last Tuesday, our first graders enjoyed their first day at the ibsm.

Head of school Barbara Cox and the new German and English teachers welcomed many excited and curious children and parents in the ibsm garden on Tuesday. At long last they were able to start in the reception class of our bilingual school. The group also included a couple of “old-timers” – children who had attended the IKC bilingual nursery earlier.

After a short introductory speech by the head of school and group photo the children went to their new schoolroom where they were able to present their stunningly crafted “Schultüten” – the large, goody-filled cardboard cornets traditionally given to celebrate a child’s first day at school in Germany. We wish all children and parents a great time at the ibsm!
