For Students, Parents, Teachers & Educators
Check this page every week for the latest and greatest Cool Tool curated by NMS′s own Annemieke Akkermans, a Secondary IT and Flex class teacher.
for 25 August 2014: BITSTRIPS www.bitstrips.com
Cartoons and comic characters are easy to create, on the Bitstrips website or ousing its free app. Spice up a language lesson and ask your students to create a Spanish or French comic. Create historical characters and re-enact the French revolution or the balcony scene from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Or use Bitstrips purely for fun and turn yourself and your friends (or your teacher) into comic characters, create greeting cards, or your own avatar. Bitstrips can easily be shared on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Email and SMS, or on a student blog like Kidblog.

Welcome (back) to the New School Year 2014-15
Dear Students, Colleagues, Parents and Friends of NMS,
It is my pleasure to welcome you (back) to NMS as the new school year is starting. I hope all of you had a joyful and relaxing summer vacation and look forward now to launching a new year of learning together.
Most of our new members of staff have arrived and we had a vibrant reception for them this morning. A total of 17 new international and German teachers will start at our school, eight of them at secondary, four at primary and five teacher trainees. Two more teachers – one for each section – will start a little later. In addition, five social pedagogues have joined our team.
Notice to all Parents with Children on the P60 Campus (Prinzregentenstr. 60):
Nelson Mandela School administration has made the decision to use the designation B24 instead of P60 for the additional school campus that will house the Flex G, Flex H, 3D and 4D plus 7E, 8E, 9E, 10E classes. From this time on, please remember the official address for the third NMS campus is Babelsberger Str. 24-25, 10715 Berlin. We ask that you use this entrance for children drop off and parent evenings.
B24 Flex parents please attend your parent meeting on Wednesday, 27 August at the building on Babelsberger Str. even though your child's Einschulung will be in the Aula at the Pfalzburger Str. building on Saturday, 30 August.
For B24 3rd and 4th grade students and parents, please join the rest of the new students and parents in the Foyer at the Pfalzburger Str. on the first day of school, Monday, 25 August, at 9:00 for a family welcome. During this welcome all students will be escorted to their classrooms which includes the B24 students. New parents are welcome to stay for a breakfast meeting to learn more about the school.
Nun hat unsere Schule einen eigenen Schulsportverein! Dank enormer Unterstützung durch unsere engagierte Elternschaft gründeten wir am 06.06.2014 unseren Schulsportverein:
„Sport Club International an der Nelson-Mandela-Schule Berlin“ (kurz: SCI).
In den Vorstand wurden gewählt:
Jörg Fraikin (1. Vorsitzender), Elke Wienkamp (2. Vorsitzende), Anna Meyer (Schatzmeisterin), Martin Röthenmeier (Vertreter des Kollegiums aus dem Fachbereich Sport), Leon Redlinger (Vertreter der jugendlichen Athleten), Bianca Ziegler (Schriftführerin).
Als Kassenprüfer wurden Jochen Frenzel und Volker Bley gewählt.
Als nächstes steht nun die Eintragung in das Vereinsregister im Amtsgericht Charlottenburg an.
