The BBS PTA – Who we are
The Berlin British School PTA (Parent, Teachers and Friends Association) is simply a group of parents, teachers and friends who wish to make BBS a place where our children’s education is fun, modern and inspiring.
The PTA is a non-profit organisation supporting the school community. Our primary aim is to encourage a close and welcoming relationship amongst the families and teaching community. Our secondary aim is to raise money to provide additional facilities for the school to enhance our children’s time here.
Our calendar is a busy one and we organise lots of social and sporting events for you and your children to enjoy; including children’s disco’s, supporting sporting events such as our annual cross country run, providing refreshments at sports day, school play performances and concerts and the highlight of the school year the ‘Summerfest’, our annual summer party. We also thank our teaching staff with an appreciation dinner.
With the funds raised at these events, the PTA has assisted in funding activities, upgrades to facilities and purchasing new equipment for the school. In the past the BBS PTA have helped purchase German and English language books for the library, iPads for ICT, Spectrometers for the Chemistry Department, keyboards and samba drums for the Music Department and outdoor sports and play equipment for the play areas.
We welcome you to the Berlin British School PTA and hope that you will join us in our efforts to be a vibrant community of global thinkers.
