Thursday night, Ben was taken from our midst. This left a wound that will remain with us as a community. We will come together, support each other and those who suffer the most. We will stand strong. Students, teachers, educators, management, parents, guardians: Let us assemble and mourn Ben on Monday, 11am, Aula at P30.

On the 22nd of February three students from the NMS had the opportunity to cook with 19-year-old star Chef Flynn McGarry from New York. The movie is about Flynn who started cooking and creating new dishes at a very young age. Flynn is a 15-year-old revolutionary. This culinary experience is something we will remember the next time we prepare a minimalistic gourmet dish. By the time Flynn was 10, he had transformed his parents’ house into a restaurant called Eureka, cooking several course menus for his family and friends. 

Bruno Sontheimer und ich (Manon Blendermann), wir beide sind Schüler*innen des LK Kunst im 12. Jahrgang, sind die Ansprechpartner für unsere Kulturpartnerschaft mit dem Bauhaus-Archiv. Wir vertreten die Nelson-Mandela-Schule Berlin auch bei der Entwicklung der Jubiläumsausstellung 100 Jahre Bauhaus in der Berlinischen Galerie. Als Teil des Bauhausagenten-Teams werden wir sowohl aktiv den Entstehungsprozess begleiten, als auch moderne und ungewöhnliche Ideen präsentieren und auf unserem Blog dokumentieren.

Dear members of the NMS community,

Founded in 2000, the Nelson Mandela School is a community of people working together to educate our children in the spirit of Nelson Mandela. This is done at the three campuses of the school functioning as one single Nelson Mandela School. The school has made rapid progress and has exceeded growth, quality and impact expectations in many ways. The pathway from an idea to a school with 1400 students was achieved through the commitment, hard work, professionalism and spirit of joint work of hundreds of people, many of whom are still part of the school community today.

Nelson Mandela School’s first ever student led career day took place on Saturday the 3rd of March 2018. The few students that did attend were treated to a variety of career presentations and talks by parents and friends. Students got to hear about life at Coca Cola, computer programming, a dual studium at Mercedes, Politics, Law, working internationally (diplomatically/development organisations) and much more!

Dear Nelson Mandela community
Dear Debating Matters Group

This year our debating team (Alec, James, Naomi and Yara) were tasked again with a debate that was hosted by Freiblickinstitut e.V. and the University of Applied Sciences Europe in a lovely venue in Mitte.

12 Berliner gymnasiums were invited to participate. Each school had to prepare for four debates and to win at least two of the debates in order to get into the semi-finals.

Our school won one of the debates and lost one. The first debate was “Monuments of controversial historical figures should remain”. Our team was debating for the motion. In the second debate on “Social media Sites should filter out fake news stories”, our team was given the position against the motion. Our team defended both positions gloriously.

Liebe Mitglieder,

VORLESEN wird an unserer Primarstufe ganz groß geschrieben! Nachdem es diesen Winter wieder einmal einen Vorlesemorgen im Dezember gab, bei dem alle Lehrerinnen und Lehrer bekannte Kinder- oder Jugendbücher vorlasen, fand am 20. Februar eine ganz besondere Lesung statt: Sabine Ludwig kam zu uns in die Schule, um aus ihrem Buch „Die schrecklichsten Mütter der Welt“ vorzulesen.
