Dear Students and Parents, Colleagues and Friends of the NMS,

The year 2013 is rapidly drawing to its close, and many of us feel challenged to fit everything in before we break up for our Christmas holiday.

2013 has been an eventful year for our school and for me personally. Heading the NMS has been a rewarding as well as an intense experience. The wonderful spirit that pervades our community was most strongly felt when we bid farewell and celebrated the lifetime achievements of our namesake Nelson Mandela the other day, certainly one of the most memorable days in the five month I have spent at the NMS. It was moving to see the great commitment and enthusiasm with which so many students, teachers and pedagogues organized a spontaneous assembly.

It is his legacy that is the topic of a small text that I have written for the Südafrika-Portal you can find attached to this greeting.

I would like to wish you all a joyful and spirited time over the coming two weeks: safe travels, cheerful gatherings, inspiring encounters as well as some peace and quiet, and a happy reunion in the New Year.

Christian Nitschke
