Erster Einsatz des NMS Museum Guides für’s Bauhaus-Archiv

Am 9.2.2017 wurden die von den LKs Kunst (Q4) konzipierten Aufgaben zur interaktiven Auseinandersetzung mit den Exponaten des Bauhaus erstmals erprobt. Emilia und Hettie (beide Q4) hatten selbstständig mit dem OSZ für Druck- und Medientechnik einen Besuchstermin im Bauhaus-Archiv vereinbart. Während ihrer LK-Stunden und Freistunden haben die beiden, unterstützt durch Carolina (ebenfalls Q4), versucht, einer recht heterogenen Gruppe von Oberschülern ihre Ideen zur Rezeption der gestalterischen Ideen des Bauhauses zu vermitteln.

The Nelson Mandela School Cool Tools are collected, shared and written by NMS teacher and Head of IT Annemieke Akkermans. Her favourite cool tools for educators are interactive, promote engaged learning, are free of charge and don’t require the creation of an account. Check out the latest Cool Tool!

for February 2017:  My Simple Show

Powerpoint, Prezi – with the MSA-exams coming up, why not check out other presentation tools? Perhaps My Simple Show isn’t the best format for the MSA, as you’ll get to do all the talking beforehand – still, this tool allows you to create excellent audio and video explainers for free. Want to write a biography or visualise what happens to H2O when it is freezing cold? Write a short script, add the images and then add your voice-over.

Or why not use the computer-generated voice? Try to feed it German or Spanish text and have a laugh... Have a look at one of the short examples and try it out yourself. It’s easy, effective and free, which makes this a definite Cool Tool. For students, teachers – and yes, of course for parents too :)

Viele Schüler_innen der Nelson-Mandela-Schule haben in den Winterferien 2017 das bunte Angebot an Aktivitäten der Ferienbetreuung genutzt. So wurde in der vergangenen Woche winterlich gebacken, gekocht und gebastelt. Außerdem standen Ausflüge in die Villa Oppenheim (Thema: Wie sah das Leben in der Steinzeit aus? – siehe Fotos), auf die Bowlingbahn und Rodeln im Volkspark Wilmersdorf auf dem Programm.

Alle Beteiligten hatten in den Ferien viel Spaß in der Schule.

In partnership with Freiblickinstitut e.V. the Institute of Ideas Debating Matters Competition will be returning to Germany for Debating Matters Berlin 2017.

Following on from the success of our Berlin showcase in 2015, the city’s students will again be invited to debate a range of contemporary issues in the challenging Debating Matters format including whether humanity should fear advances in artificial intelligence, if technology can solves society’s environmental issues, and if the risks competitors face in contact sports are worth accepting, or whether society needs to intervene to protect people.

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!


On the 26th of January 2017, the annual Winter Concert took place in the Primary Aula. The performance included the school band led by Mr. Langlotz, featuring students from 5th to 8th grade and various numbers by the Mendelssohn-Bartholdy Music school, such as choir performances and piano pieces.

Altogether the concert included a lot of talented young musicians and gave an incredible insight into the music education of our school. Events such as this one strengthen the bond between the primary and secondary campus. Furthermore they help enable the students becoming more self-confident and proud of their achievements.

On Monday, 12 December 2016, the Nelson Mandela School Choir sang Holiday Songs at the Indian Embassy. The green choir shirts were donated to the choir by the Friends of The Nelson Mandela School. The choir is grateful for their initiative.

We continue to thank the Friends and the Nelson Mandela community for their continued support.  Happy New Years to you all.
