It has been a very exciting and enjoyable half term for Mandela College. We have participated in lots of sporting events, both as a College and individually. We have had pupils take part in sporting events and we have had Wider World Day which was very exciting. We were able to welcome the Pearl of Africa choir into school and learn all about life in Africa. They taught us how to dance and their voices were amazing. We are now looking forward to Christmas and the lovely events that lay ahead of us in the coming weeks including the Winter Warmers, Christmas Fair and Carol Concert. I continue to be so proud of all pupils in Mandela and their positive happy outlook on school. Well done and keep going!
We are so proud of Maddie, Eleanor, Bethan, Alicia, Mason, Nancy, Rachel and Tallya for taking part in Winter Warmers this year. They are singing and playing instruments such as the trombone and cello. We are sure they will be amazing.
Our Year 7 pupils recently came second in the Enterprise Christmas Competition which is amazing. Holli, Abi and Madi made a Christmas tree out of an old book which showed ingenuity and creativity. Holly, Kadie, Liv and Darcy made a beautiful metal Christmas tree with a background of snow made from cotton wool. This looked beautiful and was again very creative. Well done girls. We are proud of you.
These are some of the amazing entries from the Wider World Day Competition to create clothing from recyclable materials. All the pupils in Mandela got really competitive and creative and we managed to come second overall. We particularly liked the backpack made from bin bags modelled by Mark!
We were very proud of the success of the Year 11 girls in the recent college netball competition where they were the overall winners against the other colleges. We have some outstanding netballers who play for the school team. Well done!
