We would like to welcome 6 more new students who have joined our school this month. These are students moving from Romania, UK and India. All of them join us in the MYP years.
Student events and excursions:
In the last month we celebrated various activities including excursions to Fontys University and the Pont museum in Tilburg by MYP4 students. Last week, some students observed the moon with the help on telescopes- thanks to the astronomy club from Almere. The fashion academy of Amsterdam opened their doors to few students of our school in order to expose them to a day in fashion designing, helping students to broaden their horizons for possible career opportunities. The MUN club also participated as delegates of Denmark and Syria at the HagaMUN in the Hague. We should not forget the wonderful production by our students during the annual school play. This is all possible due to the never-ending encouragement of our staff members. I would like to mention a few who were in-charge for the above activities: Ms Geelen, Ms Lameris and Mr Hendrickx for the excursion to Fontys University and the Pont museum, Ms Guha Niyogi for inviting the astronomy club in Almere, Ms Ghizdareanu for organizing a working day at the fashion academy, Ms Orlandini for accompanying and helping the MUN club, and Ms Geelen and Mr Champion for the school play and Ms Lameris for the set design.
DP1 students engaged in “NL doet”, where they performed various chores as volunteers. Most students found these activities as eye openers and also as a contribution to society. Some students also participated in the 24 hour relay for life walking for “samenloop voor hoop”, fundraising for the cancer research. These activities were guided by Ms de Maat.
DP2 students will be having their last day of school on the 12th of April. We thank them for their time with us and we wish them well on their study leave. I am certain that they will do well in their exams.
International Food Fair 2018:
We are thrilled to have a full team of parent coordinators for the IFF 2018 team. The event relies on your gastronomic contributions. Please support the team by offering to bring in some food for the event. Please contact them directly as they would like to make an inventory of what is going to be contributed and what is still missing.
We look forward to seeing you all at the International Food Fair!
