This year nine IB Visual Arts students showed their studio work in the P30 Aula. As part of their final assessment the students thoughtfully curated their artwork, that has been created throughout the course. 

The exhibition ran until April 16 but you can still take the walkthrough tour here below. The tour was taken more than 300 times by members of the NMS community.

Due to the pandemic, the exhibition was not open to the public and visits had to be confirmed by the school management. Click on the picture below to see the full size exhibition picture. IBart2021

The students of class 9d created their own GIFs against racism that are collected in a padlet.


We spent the month of February discussing the topic of racism and exchanged our experiences. Some NMS art teachers used the opportunity during the Black History Month to specifically focus on visual art created by Black artists. The online art lessons, however, should be creative and product-orientated, not necessarily concentrate on more cognitive content that our students would get en masse from many other subjects.

Ready to test

The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination is observed annually on 21 March. On that day, in 1960, police opened fire and killed 69 people at a peaceful demonstration in Sharpeville, South Africa, against the apartheid pass laws.

Lian from class 7c and Lidia from class 7d followed a call by the social pedagogues of P30 to participate in a creative activity against racism by  making their own short films. They both chose to go with stop motion but used different techniques and settings. Click on the pictures above and below to see the films.

A short video presentation was created of the students work in the primary school and in the secondary school a padlet was set-up to share resources and contributions of students, teachers and educators.


As the 21st of March was a Sunday this year, the school commemorated the day on Friday, 19th March. On this day, many classes looked at the work of other classes, students or groups from the Nelson Mandela School plus read books, watched videos, did activities or/and discussed the topic of eliminating racial discrimination.


Dear Parents, 

As you have probably learned from the media, the existing regulations for our school with regard to -distance learning online-  will remain in place through this Friday, 5th March, 2021. Beginning Tuesday, March 9 our Grade 4,5 & 6 classes will resume in-person instruction. There will be at least three daily class room sessions with established half-class groups. In addition we will offer a modul of  study support and care. 

As a contribution to Black History Month 2021, the students of 11c wrote blog posts about how they see racism in the context of their daily lives in Germany. This project is inspired by our reading of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s novel Americanah, in which the central character, Ifemelu, records her observations about racism in the U.S. in a blog called “Raceteenth, or Various Observations about American Blacks […] by a Non-American Black.” 

Read on, and you will learn more about the importance of mental health in the Black community, the spoken and unspoken assumptions confronting Asian Germans, the appropriation of Middle Eastern youth culture, why being “old-fashioned” is no excuse for racism, how difficult it can be for non-EU citizens to get a visa to continue their studies at NMS, why confronting racism is more important than the Bundesliga, and much, much more!
