A Tribute to Nelson Mandela

Two of our students, Stephen and Christopher, wrote the following poem in memory of and as a tribute to Nelson Mandela. May he rest in peace.

TriumphNelson Mandela

I’ve learned that courage was not the absence of fear…

but the triumph over it,

Oh God my dear

Nelson Mandela died at 95

Fought for black rights until he died

An icon, a legend, a saviour for the nation

Let’s come join our hands as one congregation

Courage never lacks the heart of a father

Nelson or a tyrant – which one would you rather?

Died at 95 and still he is great

Thanks for everything


Love you mate….
