Nelson Mandela is a lanyard school.
ID Cards and Lanyards are part of Mandela’s safety protocol. Our proximity to the Genesis Centre and CTrain Station could result in individuals who are not students or staff at Mandela trespassing in the school. As such, all students are required to wear their student ID on the school lanyard provided. This is to be worn correctly around their neck and
must be visible. Students may not substitute the School Lanyard for a lanyard of another type or design.
Students who forget their ID need to return home to get it, or make arrangements to have their ID brought to the school. Lost ID cards may be replaced at the business office at a cost to the student.
The ID card is used for signing out library books, accessing technology, attending student events, writing exams and accessing the Genesis Centre.
