School Council were representatives of our school, who were one of 3 schools in Liverpool, invited to the Mandela Memorial Ceremony, in Princes Park.
The former President’s eldest daughter Dr Makaziwe ‘Maki’ Mandela and his granddaughter Tukwini Mandela attended on the 11 February giving their blessing to the location where a permanent memorial to Nelson Mandela will stand.
The work reflects upon Nelson Mandela’s love of gardens and horticulture along with his struggle for freedom, equality and humanity. The spaces will be used for future activity in the park, acting as a focal point and an area to visit, reflect and educate.
We were very proud to be invited and that our city had chosen to remember such an inspirational person in this way.
