INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the Extra Curricular Activities booklet from Berlin Brandenburg International School
2018/2019 Term 1 with preview Terms II and III.

We strongly encourage all students to participate in this program as it offers a unique opportunity to meet
new friends, be a risk-taker, and share and learn new passions whilst having fun! The program enables
students to learn new skills and fully become part of our international school community.

The ECA program aims to further open the minds and eyes of our students, to provide them with
something new and challenging to look forward to. We are therefore excited to be able to offer such
diverse activities as chamber music, international award, athletic activities, home language academy and
many more new activities.

We are very fortunate with the generosity and commitment of the BBIS staff, as well as external and
volunteer instructors; however, it is sometimes impossible to offer activities all year round. This does
however, provide our students with a greater opportunity to try different activities throughout the year.

Sincerely yours,

The ECA Coordinator

                                                                                                         2

Term 2​ = ​Monday 14 January - Friday 29 March 2019

ECAs will run during the above dates, unless otherwise stated. All students who would like to participate in
an ECA must be registered using the online form. There is an expectation of 90% attendance during school
in order to qualify for ECA external trips (e.g. GISST basketball tournaments, Maths Competitions, etc.).

There is a two (2) week trial period where students ensure they will commit to an ECA. After the two (2)
week trial period, all students will be billed for the ECA, whether they decide to continue or not. Students
will not be able to attend an ECA if they haven’t registered online by the deadline.

Deadline for Term 1 afterschool activity registration is ​ Friday 7 September 2018.

Please register via the online link below ​from Monday, 27 August 2018​:
ECA Registration Link

Primary School Students

IMPORTANT: All Primary School students should meet in the Aula at 15.00 on the day of their ECA.
Student attendance will be confirmed before the ECA Leader collects students and walks them to their
activity. ECA Leaders will then walk relevant students to the Late Bus upon finishing at 16.30.

Dress Code – Sport Activities

All participants of sporting activities are expected to wear appropriate, functional clothing. Indoor activities
require non-marking, clean indoor shoes.

                                                                                                               6
Extra Curricular Activities - ECA Booklet Term 1 Last updated 24 August 2018 2018-2019 - Berlin Brandenburg International School
Commitment and Absences

There is an expectation that once signed up for an activity, students attend the activity for the entire length
of the term. If circumstances prevent students from continuing or coming to an activity, we ask you to
inform the ECA Coordinator ​(eca.coordinator@bbis.de)​ and​ the activity leader in advance.

Please email your ECA activity leader and the ECA Coordinator (eca.coordinator@bbis.de) if
your child will not be at their scheduled ECA due to sickness, absence, etc.

Costs

The majority of ECAs will include a moderate contribution to partially cover the costs they generate. The
costs for most ECAs are split into three (3) categories, and will be as follows:

FREE: ​No up front charge – there may be some small costs involved, but it will be clearly stated in the
booklet. There are a number of activities such as lunchtime ECAs that are free.

PAID:​ ​This is a ​yearly flat fee.

If starting in Term I for the full year, the fees will be
         160 Euros for 1 ECA once a week per term across the whole year
         280 Euros for unlimited ECAs across the whole year

If starting in Term II only (January 2019), the fees will be
         105 Euros for 1 ECA once a week per term across Terms II and III
         180 Euros for unlimited ECAs across Terms II and III

If starting in Term III only (April 2019), the fees will be
         50 Euros for 1 ECA once a week per term for Term III
         90 Euros for unlimited ECAs for Term III

A similar number of activities will be offered in Term 11 and Term 111. The annual flat fee is based on the
experience that most students take one or several activities all year round. Therefore, the payment process
for parents becomes a once-a-year exercise to simplify the process.

The following refunds will be returned to your account in case of dropping ECAs after Term I
or Term II. Please send us a refund request via email to ​eca.coordinator@bbis.de​ .

        Paid for one ECA: 50 Euros refund per term.
        Paid for unlimited ECAs: 90 Euros refund per term.

                                                                                                             7
Extra Curricular Activities - ECA Booklet Term 1 Last updated 24 August 2018 2018-2019 - Berlin Brandenburg International School
EXTERNAL​: ​Up front charge direct from the instructor (not the school). There is ​NO free trial period
for this category. If a student does not continue after the 2 week trial period, a payment for the 1​st or 2​nd
week will be required. External instructors will provide you with a contract to complete and inform you
directly of the payment details.

Cancellations only within the first two weeks of each Term.

If your child started an ECA and does not want to continue beyond the first two weeks, you can withdraw
without costs. To withdraw, you need to send an email cancellation to the ECA Coordinator.

Late Bus Information

There is no additional fee required for extra buses that run exclusively for ECAs that finish at 16.30.
The late bus is available to Early Education, Primary and Secondary School students. There are late buses on
Monday through to Friday.

The late bus leaves school at 16.45. This bus will follow a strict route and time schedule. Normal school bus
rules, as printed in the school handbooks, also apply for the late bus. ​Early Education and ​Primary
School students will need to be collected from the relevant bus stop where appropriate​. If no
one is there to meet the student, they will be returned to BBIS (unless stated), whereby the relevant person
will be contacted.

Please indicate online which stop your son/daughter will be getting off at.

Any students waiting to be picked up will need to do so in the Atrium of House 3 (unless other
arrangements are made by the instructor).

Soccer fans around the world admire the Dutch style of play. Players like Johan Cruyff, Marco van Basten,
Dennis Bergkamp, Clarence Seedorf and Arjen Robben have set a standard for exciting, creative play. For
the past 40 years, the Dutch have played a vital role in International soccer. Dutch players have been and
are currently playing for the most successful European clubs.

How did a tiny country like Holland become a world soccer leader? One major reason is that coaches in
the Netherlands are high-level educators who truly teach the game. In addition, the Royal Dutch Football
Federation (KNVB) is a global leader in creating development programs for young players.

At its foundation stands Rinus Michels, the man who ‘invented’ Total Soccer in the ’70’s. His ideas are the
basis of all the Dutch Soccer School programs, founded on the premise that the player’s ball control and
tactical development always receive top priority in training.
                                                                                                             15
This unique program goes far beyond the static regimented training environment employed by most camps.
Technical and tactical instruction are conducted through the application of small-sided games so that players
experience a training environment that replicates the real game.

Under the watchful eye of our Dutch trained coaching staff, players will begin to know what to do, how to
do it and when to do it — at the technical speed that is required in the modern game.
We group players according to age and ability, making their experience challenging and enjoyable. Based on
staff assessment and recommendation, individuals may be moved to higher-level groups as the school
progresses.

Our programs are designed to help players achieve their maximum potential through progressive exercises
that are individually challenging, as well as appropriate to the age and ability of each player.

In ‘Literature and Critical Thinking’ I'd like to go over a few key Prose, Poetry, Drama and Philosophy
fragments with the students in order to analyse and discuss them in a relaxed way, without the pressure of
being graded or having a deadline to meet. Works and fragments tackled will range from Plato, Descartes
or Rousseau to Jonathan Swift, Seamus Heaney or W.B. Yeats. This workshop would be ideal for those
students willing to go a bit further in the realms of Literature and Humanities and for those who want to
feed their enquiring spirit - as well as their critical thinking.

    ●   Limit: 15 students
    ●   Location: Room 3209

Essay writing is one of the most important components of the IB program and usually, one of the most
challenging examinations for students. The key to essay-writing lays in the capacity of the student to
structure the text and coherently develop and discuss an argument. In this course, students will learn the
necessary skills to successfully draft and edit compelling IB essays. The course will discuss both, past IB
examination as well as some of the best essays written in the 19th and 20th century. By the end of the
course, students will have mastered the art of essay writing, a skill that will prove most necessary for the
writing of university applications and bachelor degrees.

                                                                                                         23

Writing is one of the most important skills a student can learn. Although this course seeks to introduce
students in the basics of creative writing, the course is highly recommended to any student who seeks to
learn how to better communicate using the written form. The two main components of this course are
reading comprehension and writing. This course aims at supporting the school’s curriculum by helping
students improve their close reading abilities, a fundamental skill for the IB program at the same time as the
students get a chance to discover the joy of creative writing. Small excerpts from important texts will also
be read in the session in order to show by matter of example what the elements that make up a good story
are, how to develop strong characters and construct a coherent storyline.

Are you always running late for appointments?
Has your dog eaten your homework... yet again?
Does your bedroom look like and smell like a farmyard?
Does your school bag look like a cat has exploded in it?
Fed up with always losing your stuff?
Don’t despair, help is at hand! Perhaps you need to think about joining the Get Organised Group (GOG).
We are a student self help group, which focuses on teaching young people the necessary skills to improve
their personal organisational skills, both academically and personally. All members join on a voluntary basis
and not because either their teachers or parents force them to! All members need to already recognise that
they have a problem with their personal organisation, but are now self motivated to do something about
this. The group in the past has helped many students to remember their homework, keep their rooms tidy
and improve their grades. Our new members’ first organisational challenge will be to remember to just turn
up on time for our first meeting!

Reality is the playground of the unimaginative! Welcome to the BBIS Role Playing Games Club (RPG Club).
We meet once a week on a Wednesday after school for two and half hours of table top/pen and paper role
playing gaming. We were founded by IBDP CAS students in 2012 and our group is organised by Mr.
Gregory, who helps to supervise the club and runs some of the games. We offer members a chance to
draw upon their imaginations (rather than their computers) to play table top strategic games like classic old
school “pen & paper” role playing games, such as Dungeons and Dragons (D&D), using dice and miniatures.
Students are responsible for purchasing their own figures, dice, drinks and snacks, although you will not
initially need anything, other than snacks and drinks. Free hardcopies and pdf’s will be available for all RPG
gaming rules on Managebac, which we also use for communicating and tracking our adventures and
character development. Gaming options for this coming year may include: Advanced Labyrinth Lord
(AD&D 1st Ed.), Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition and Traveller. The groups may also decide to play:
Warhammer Fantasy RPG, Warhammer Fantasy Battle, Warhammer 40k, Dungeons and Dragons,
Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (1st ed – 5th ed), Traveller, Mega Traveller, Mutant Futures and
Shadowrun. Last academic year we had two groups who where playing Advanced Labyrinth Lord (AD&D
1e), which were run by Tim and Leo, a 5th Edition D&D group run by Max, and the other group was
playing Traveller, a Sci-Fi setting, which was run by Mr. Gregory. Last years group had two members of
staff supervising, 3 volunteer student Games Masters running sessions and 20+ members, girls and boys,
from grades 6-12. Come along and join us for an afternoon of creativity, high fantasy and science fiction.
The sessions normally run from 15:00 until 17:30 and students who wish to stay until 17:30 will be required
to either be picked up or get home independently of the late bus. All students under 16 years of age will
require parental permission in order to do this. Preferential places will be given to last years members who
wish to remain in the club, but new members are very welcome.
