Dear Graduate Class 2016,

The Nelson Mandela School is home to the highly mobile; yet a few of you have been students here from when there was still a preschool.

Your parents are those who were part of the schools’ naming process, back bones of the parent council, long standing members of the school conference and founders of the Friends of Nelson Mandela, our Förderverein.

This was a generation of parents who participated in shaping the profile of this organized, disorganized, chaotic, crazy, flexible and yet cherished school in which the attributes “international” and “diverse” are not mere labels but an identification, a way of life.

Graduates: Your success here today is in no small measure due to their support.

The past weeks have seen some very intense debates on where the Nelson Mandela School is headed after the change in management.

The student members to the School Conference, the school´s governing body, graduates here today, were strong advocates to ensure that the students of the Nelson Mandela School can continue to have the diverse and international experiences they had.

Class of 2016, go out into the world with courage, take the values of Nelson Mandela with you wherever you go.

Boa Sorte, Good Luck, Viel Glück
Beate Zander Zeidam
CoChair to the Parent Council P30 campus
