Our Teaching staff and students are currently on their half term break. It may seem strange to have a holiday so soon after returning to on-campus (junior) schooling; it’s because we follow the British School calendar rather than the Dutch one. Sometimes the British and Dutch school holidays coincide, sometimes not. A break at any time is always appreciated, however; particularly in the current circumstances. Just before we broke up, we held a successful Student Awards evening to honour outstanding students in Year 11 and 13. It’s an annual ceremony and a very important event on the calendar. This year, it had to be virtual of course. Learn more about how we managed this challenge
to ensure our students received the honour and recognition they deserve.
This year we had a high number of Duke of Edinburgh
Gold award winners among our students. To achieve this award, students must work with a team on a residential activity. For some, this criterion was fulfilled by ‘Project Africa’ which involved raising funds and helping build facilities for a primary school in Kenya. In this short video
, BSN student, Rebecca, a recipient of the award reflects on her initial skepticism to the project and how this changed.
