Frederick Eichhorst started school at NMS at age five in 2005 (the small pictures are from 2007). With six years Freddie (born Dec 1999) learned how to sail. After having been coached for several years by Florentine Baumann, who (besides her teaching job at NMS) voluntarily worked as district sailing coach for the Optimist Dinghy Class at Lake Wannsee, Frederick became the youngest participant of the International German Championship for Optimist in 2009. He successfully participated in many more national and international sailing regattas ranking top 10 of Germany’s Optimist sailors. After competing in the Olympic sailboat class 470 he soon searched for new challenges and in 2016 first tried out the foiling catamaran class.

NMS-Schülerin Veza, 9b, war im April 2017 in intensivem Kontakt mit einer Kunstlehrerin der NMS Mvezo in Eastern Cape, Nthuthu Spelman, weil Veza in Absprache mit Fr. Baumann und Hr. Miebs plante, während einer Familienreise durch Südafrika an der NMS-Partnerschule in Mvezo eine Schulstunde zu halten. Das hat nicht geklappt, weil die NMS Mvezo derzeit durch schweres Fahrwasser geht und man dort schlichtweg übersehen hatte, dass Osterferien waren.

Dort hat Veza schließlich Anfang April eine Unterrichtsstunde zu den „Fibonacci-Zahlen und dem Bezug zur Kunst“ gehalten, die auf große Resonanz stieß.

On Saturday, the 20th of May, 18 of our students from grade 7 to grade 12 participated in the Avon Frauenlauf: an annual event which raises money for cancer research. Our students took part in the 5 km race. Before the run, all participants warmed up together and took part in a massive mannequin challenge; trying to break the world record. There were 18,000 women in total participating in the various races. There was a very casual, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. As a gift, the girls received goodie bags filled with Avon products.

We would like to thank all the runners for their enthusiasm, Herr Fraikin for lending us the NMS shirts and allowing us to train with him. Thanks also to Cormac and William from 10d, our helpers on the day. Finally, thanks to Melina and Fenya from 10c, and Anna and Paula from 10d and Mrs. McCabe for organizing our school team.

On Tuesday, 13 June 2017, P23 had their annual fun run. Motivated by the pledges for donations from parents, family and friends, the students took to the track around the school yard with the aim of running at least 20 laps each. Some students even managed to run 100 laps! Proceeds from this year’s Fit-for-fun will go to renovating the Chillhof of P23.

On Tuesday, 25 April 2017 at 19:00, there was a performance of Euripides’ Alcestis in the Aula, P30.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Another academic year is slowly coming to an end and it is time to place orders for The Educational Package again. 

During the 2014-15 school year, school management introduced the Berlin Educational Resources Fund, to which funds collected for the provision of educational materials are transferred. The idea behind this fund is not only the provision of books, but also a large variation of high quality educational resources as well as IT equipment, stationery and the NMS Log Book. We constantly strive to ensure that the high standards set at the Nelson Mandela School are maintained. We are thankful for your support in achieving this goal. 

The fund is overseen by the school management/administration and is audited by two elected parents from the GEV (Gesamtelternvertretung) every year.

As in previous years, we would like to encourage you to make a voluntary contribution of €50,00 towards financing the school library and IT maintenance staff.  Without these contributions, we cannot continue our work in these areas. These funds will be transferred to the main account of the Friends of Nelson Mandela.

This voluntary contribution of €50,00 is tax-deductible. The This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. are happy to issue a receipt for tax purposes.
