Kindernothilfe Medienpreisverleihung 2014

Großer Auftritt der Kinderjury!

Vier Schülerinnen und Schüler der 6b überreichten am Freitagabend, dem 17. November 2014, zusammen mit vier weiteren Jurymitgliedern aus dem Andreas-Gymnasium (Friedrichshain) den diesjährigen „Kindernothilfe Medienpreis“.

Hierfür werden jährlich die von Journalisten eingesandten Beiträge, die sich in herausragender Weise mit dem Thema Kinderrechte und deren Missachtung beschäftigen, ausgezeichnet.

Antonia, Ruby, Gil und Frederik aus der 6b waren ganz aufgeregt, während sie auf ihren Auftritt im Atrium der Telekom Hauptstadtrepräsentanz warteten. Als sie dann auf der Bühne standen und in das grelle Scheinwerferlicht schauten, bekamen sie jedoch von den über 500 Zuschauern kaum etwas mit.

Going Abroad in Year 11: Report on a Unique Opportunity

The Nelson Mandela School (NMS) offers a unique social and learning opportunity to Abitur students going into the 11th grade. It encourages them to take a leave of absence during that school year to study for either one semester or the entire school year in another country and thereby have a learning experience in a different cultural and language setting.

Joshua Heide was one such student who chose to go to China. Having lived in both the U.S. and Germany and traveled extensively with his parents, who are journalists, throughout Europe, Mexico and Costa Rica, he wanted the challenge to be exposed to an unfamiliar culture and language. Joshua had always been interested in China, though his overall knowledge of the country and its history was very limited. Previously, he had focused his interests on U.S. and European history and now wanted to learn about a different part of the world. And he was well aware of the growing emergence of China as an economic and political power as it was becoming increasingly more important in global issues such as commerce, international relations and the environment.

Before arriving in China, he took a 2-week crash course in Mandarin that emphasized basic verbs and vocabulary written in Latin characters. He went through American Field Services (AFS) which placed him in the city of Jo that has a population of 10 million people in the central province of Hunan and in a high school of 3,000 Chinese students. From the very start, everything about his experience in China was completely different from what he had known living previously in Germany and the U.S.

Halloween at B24

Babelsberger 24 was host to an amazing Halloween Party on 06 November 2014. Children, parents, educators and teachers came dressed up in their Halloween costumes to take part in the fun and be a little bit spooked!

The atmosphere at B24 was certainly spine-chilling, with cobwebs and pumpkins lining the dark entrance. Grisly zombies, witches corpses and horrifying phantoms hung from the corridors ready to grab and frighten anyone who passed along the shadowy corridors.

The secondary students got the party started with their dance tunes and the dance floor took on an eerie air with the ice machine - it looked like a doomed graveyard! There was also a cake and hotdog stand for all the hungry ghosts, while outside there was toasted marshmallows.

It was a great Halloween Party and here's to the next celebration at Babelsberger 24.

Update on Centralised Book Orders / IT and Library Fee

Some parents have expressed concerns regarding the new centralised book ordering process, the distribution of the books and the wish for more information with respect to the allocation of these funds. In response to these concerns the school management, the Parents’ Association and the Friends of Nelson Mandela have got together with a view to streamlining the book ordering process.
