Video #StayathomeChoir: Memories (Maroon 5) - Cover Dezember 2020 - YouTube

The love of music connects us even in these difficult times. Together with over 140 students from the Nelson-Mandela-Schule Berlin, the Max-Steenbeck-Gymnasium Cottbus and various choirs and orchestras from Germany, Sweden, Austria, the USA and the world, we recorded a large choir video at the end of 2020. We are happy that music-making and singing together can take place even in such difficult times, but we are also looking forward to singing and making music in school again. The project was carried out by Felix Theuner, who is currently teaching as a practical semester student at the Nelson Mandela School in Berlin.

Hört ihr, wie´s knallt und zischt? The children of class Flex A performed the traditional German poem "Der Bratapfel" as a recording for their parents. It is a famous German poem, known and recited by kids all over Germany. Find out, maybe even your parents know the poem if they grew up in Germany?

The children were very excited to make this recording, especially as we had to make sure that all the Corona safety requirements for everyone, such as singing with masks, washing hands before and after, disinfecting instruments and keeping enough distance while singing, were met. In the end, it all worked out well and the kids performed wonderfully.

Don´t be surprised if after listening to this, you feel you really would like to enjoy a mouthwatering and delicious Bratapfel?

Enjoy Flex A´s "Der Bratapfel".

Am 10.11.2020 morgens um 8:00 trafen sich die Schüler der Klasse 7b  im Klassenzimmer, um Kunstprojekt durchzuführen.

 Sie waren aufgeregt und freuten sich auf das Bemalen der Wand. Zuerst wurde die Klasse in 6 Gruppen aufgeteilt. An diesem Tag fand kein normaler Unterricht statt, weil es ein Projekttag war. Jede Gruppe war der Reihe nach mit dem Bemalen dran. Sie malten 60 Minuten lang Töne als abstrakte Formen an die Wand.

For my CAS project I organised a week long Diversity Task Force event, the Diversity Task Force is dedicated to making our school a more inclusive, safe and welcoming place, regardless of gender identity, race or sexuality.  Diversity2

Saying that, the purpose of this project is to begin breaking down the gender roles and norms that have been dictated by society. This event is taking place from the 16th to the 20th of November, we will be hanging up informative posters everyday of the week, this will be coupled with a themed competition , with different prizes everyday (details are on the posters). 

A musical offering from Primary Choir volunteers in year 5 & 6. Huge thanks for amazing advice and technical help from the multi-talented Julia Naji.

We present in a cappella: 'Silent Night;' 'Mary's Boy Child;'  'We Wish You a Merry Christmas.'

As we have spontaneously recorded the Libertango by Astor Piazolla on the last day of school, which means the day before yesterday (Tuesday 15 the December), we would like to share this with the NMS community.
