“It was during those long and lonely years that my hunger for the freedom of my people became a hunger for the freedom of all people.” – Nelson Mandela

At the Nelson Mandela School parents of 9abcd were invited to an evening with WWI poetry. The topic of WWI is an important one in year 9 and also covered not only by the English Department but also by the Social Sciences Department.
The world has not been without war for a long time. At the moment we hear of multiple conflicts breaking out all over the planet, and there is even one that is raging close to our borders as we speak.
We hope in the English Department that by tackling the theme of war that we can bring comprehension and understanding to our students that war is never the solution, but freedom, peace and respect for the common human values that we share are the way forward in every conflict.
