Nelson Mandela Park Public School

April 2016 Principal’s Message

Dear Parents/Caregivers,
There is so much rich learning happening at our school right now, especially in the area of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) education. Our students were recently featured in the Metro newspaper for the work they have been doing in learning how to program and create video games.  We are excited to help move our students from being consumers of video games to being producers of games!

We are very excited by the leadership that Nelson Mandela Park PS students have been showing in the area of STEAM as evidenced through the ongoing work happening in our school Science Lab and also the active participation of our Mandela Science Club in city wide Science Fairs.
Also, we just recently had a number of our grade 5/6 students participate in the Gauss math test. 

Speaking of leadership, I would like to take a moment to give our condolences to the family of the recently passed Trustee Sheila Ward.  Trustee Ward was a huge advocate for Regent Park area schools and Nelson Mandela Park PS in particular.  In fact, our rebuild in great part can be attributed to the "behind the scenes" efforts of Trustee Ward.  She will be missed and our thoughts are with her family during this time.  Even in passing Trustee Ward's heart was with Nelson Mandela as her last wish was for any donations in her name to go to our school.
