Nelson Mandela School mourns the death of its namesake, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.

A personal note on the death of Nelson Mandela

We have all been aware that the time was soon to come when we would learn about the death of South Africa's first black president. The day has arrived, and we feel the pain and sadness about the loss of one of the most eminent moral figures of our time without any alleviation.

As a school community, we feel grateful for the great honor of having Nelson Mandela as our namesake. His legacy of perseverance, integrity, forgiveness and modesty will continue to be our inspiration.
Christian Nitschke
