The International week was great!

17 november 2016

De Meergronden has hosted an International week in the week of the 7th of November 2016. About 80 students of four different nationalities (German, Czech, Polish, and Dutch) have worked together.

The foreign students and their teachers have stayed in Dutch host families for a week in order to experience Dutch life and culture.

We have organized different activities in school during this week.

The students have followed numerous workshops and the highlight of the week was a major performance on Friday evening. Everything was live-streamed, so our foreign partner schools and the parents abroad were able to watch everything live too. You can watch this on YouTube!

We have visited the Rijksmuseum, The Palace and the Zaanse Schans. The day in Amsterdam  ended in a frantic shopping spree.

All these activities have hopefully brought our different cultures and values together.

Teachers Zoë Heukels and Ingrid Dofferhoff
