Special Events

Throughout the school year, we hold a number of special events, designed to further develop your child’s learning outside the classroom. When appropriate, we join the whole primary school together to give your child the chance to mix with and learn from the children of other ages. We are always keen for parents and carers to get involved and our class parents and Parents Association provide a lot of support for these events.

During the school year, your child’s class will go on a variety of exciting and educational school trips designed to enhance their learning, sometimes along with other classes within primary. Past trips have included Technopolis, European Space Agency and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam as well as trips to visit local businesses such as Van Lier Shoes and Jan de Rijk Logistics.

In December, we celebrate the holiday season with a range of non-religious Christmas activities, including a visit from Santa and a feast and party to which parents are invited. The feast is a great opportunity to taste delicious foods from around the world and is followed by fun activities for the children. Every year, the whole primary school puts on a Christmas performance, where all children play a part. Parents, carers, our secondary students as well as children from our sister Dutch school are invited to watch.

At the end of each school year, our Parents Association, in collaboration with our School Council, organise an international summer picnic. This is a wonderful event where the whole primary school gets together with staff and parents to enjoy international food and fun special events to celebrate the end of the school year.
