Mentor’s Mandela

MandelaAs the world mourns the loss of a great man, Mentor College’s Grade 1s are just starting to learn about the heroic and life-altering actions of Nelson Mandela.

Miss Dissanayake’s class read newspaper articles, gathered facts and opinions from their parents and was shown a book written by children of South Africa about the life and times of Nelson Mandela, or Madiba as he was lovingly named.

The students then proceeded to create their own classroom book. Even though Mr. Mandela is no longer with us, clearly he continues to inspire generations.
