Around 25 students, 2 teachers and 1 parent joined the UMUGANDA as opportunity to do NMS community service on March 11. We cleaned the halls of our buildings and tidied up the entrance area. The schoolyard was cleaned from trash – the students were amazed by the amounts of wrappers, cups and bottles that had not been thrown in the bin. Most of the students joining in are contributing their time and effort due to their community work hours for Orientation Phase’s RESPONSIBILITIES & CHALLENGES. But a couple of student also just joined in because they feel a responsibility for their school’s maintenance.

Beginning Friday, March 10th, Mr. Peterson will be holding SCIENCE FRIDAYS at NMS Secondary, P30. The purpose is to provide an informal atmosphere in which students are free to ask, explore and have fun in the world of science. The goal is to be more than a ‘science club’; we want this to be a welcoming setting for anyone to come by and ask questions to their heart’s content, to research and discover new knowledge, to use science in creative and nefarious (just kidding) ways and possibly cook some food (cooking is chemistry and biology!). This idea came about after hearing all the wonderful and complex questions students ask in science class, questions for which we never have enough time to answer thoroughly. So SCIENCE FRIDAY will be that, the opportunity not only to ask questions, but for students to be guided on how to find answers and to find new questions. In addition, there have been numerous requests from our students that our school have a Jugend forscht team – so SCIENCE FRIDAY will also be our starting point for that endeavor.

Class 3C finished studying light, optics and optical illusions by using acrylic paints to camouflage our hands with the fur and feather patterns of our favourite animals. It was a challenging, fun and messy afternoon!

Kunqu Chinese theatre

Here are pictures from the wonderful Kunqu Chinese theatre performance by the Year 9-10 Drama Elective class (WPU) at P30 on 15 February 2017.

Das UNESCO-Projekt „Inner Peace Day“ kam am 06.03.17 nach Berlin und besuchte auch uns in der Nelson-Mandela-Schule. Eine Gruppe von Freiwilligen aus ganz Europa gaben am Montag und Dienstag Workshops in sechs verschiedenen Klassen der Sekundarstufe. Dabei ging es nicht nur um den Frieden in der Welt, sondern auch um den eigenen Frieden tief in uns, der uns zu ausgeglichenen und fairen Mitmenschen einer Gesellschaft macht. Im Rahmen des Workshops gab es eine angeleitete Meditation und kleine Hilfen, mehr Ruhe in den eigenen Alltag zu bringen. Schüler/innen und Lehrkräfte waren sehr begeistert von diesem Projekt und genossen die Ruhe.

On March 8 a small group of initiators, Meret Weber (10c), Clara Schneck (IB12), Fanny Tockner (Q2) and Florentine Baumann, met to discuss the chances of an application of our school to become a BERLINER KLIMA-SCHULE. The label certifies schools that offer several activities towards sustainability and an eco-friendly school atmosphere.

Dear Nelson Mandela School Community,

It is with great pleasure that I inform you that our debating team, made up of Julia Dannemann, Mark Braasch, Alec Dent, James Keogh, Meret Weber and Yara Abdel-Ghany, has won all three debates and are the winners of this year’s Debating Matters for the second year running. The topics they debated for, or against, were:

  • “Humanity should fear advances in artificial intelligence”
  • “Technological progress will not solve society's environmental issues”
  • “Childhood vaccinations should be compulsory”
  • “We should accept the risk inherent in contact sports”

Students of the present Year 12 participated in a Community Project for Sustainable Living organised by the Hong Kong Baptist University and won prizes in two categories. Congratulations and thanks to Cedric Schmidt, Valerie Boakye, Fanny Tockner, Julia Dannemann-Freitag, Yasmin Krönert, Arja Nunn, Ann-Sophie Jugel, Muriel Grosshennig, Dana Herzberg; their efforts, ideas and enthusiasm paid off!
