Congratulations to all students who graduated in 2017!

Last Thursday, 6 July 2017, 4e students Carlo, Dennis and Leo participated in the TV show 1, 2, 3 and they fought for class 4e and won for the whole NMS!! The TV show will be broadcasted in December.

My name is Michèle and I'm a student from IB12. As a part of our IB program, we have to initiate and conduct a CAS project. For my CAS project I visited a kindergarten, where I regularly planned activities for the kids that all involved something educational. This was done as a part to prepare these children for their upcoming school life. The main topics that I had covered included shapes, colors, animals, seasons, and numbers. Those topics I took as a basis to plan out my activities. These all involved handicrafts because I strongly believe that combining some form of art with learning is the most efficient method for young children to gain knowledge and be excited about doing so.

Congratulations! The IB results are in and the class of 2017 should be very proud.  The average point total for the class is 35.  That surpasses the world average by 5 points!  The graduates will be continuing their studies in:

  • Berlin, Germany
  • Bremen, Germany
  • Oxford, UK
  • Lancaster, UK
  • Bradford, UK
  • Barcelona, Spain
  • Cape Town, South Africa
  • Nairobi, Kenya
  • Amman, Jordan
  • Ontario, Canada
  • Riga, Latvia

just to name a few.  We wish the class all the best in pursuing their interests and studies.

NMS is preparing for the implementation of the new Basiscurriculum Medienbildung (media education) next school year. Teachers have attended workshops on this topic and the internal curriculum is nearly finished. One element that seems to have been forgotten in the Berlin curriculum is learning about algorithms and basic computer science, even though the KMK (Kultusministerkonferenz) clearly states that this is an important skill in the 21st century, one that has to be taught by German schools, starting in primary.

Liebe Eltern,
am 30. Juni 2017 ab 18 Uhr wird in der Nelson-Mandela-Schule die 2. Long Night of Knowledge stattfinden. In Anlehnung an die Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften, die in Berlin Tradition ist, möchten wir – die Lehrer und Schüler – ihnen interessante Beiträge zu Kultur und Naturwissenschaften präsentieren.

Once again, we had a productive and enjoyable Umuganda last Saturday, June 24, from 2pm to 6pm. The main focus of our voluntary activity was set on outdoor work since the weather was warm and mostly dry. About half of the participants worked on the schoolyard tidying up and taking care of the raised flowerbeds. Plans were developed on how to proceed with our gardening success. The other half of enthusiastic helpers repainted a wall in the entrance area and covered a wall in the foyer of the new building with the school logo. Rudi Schindler prepared a delicious snack for all of us with homemade garden salad (multiculturally enriched with Feta cheese, olives and garlic) that went along well with a light and refreshing tea made from our own peppermint leaves. At the end of our work session we all sat down together in the school kitchen to enjoy Rudi’s excellent cuisine. Thanks to all volunteers!
