The Big School Clean-up!

We have been contacted by Es Buzz who have organised a clean up around the school as part of the national initiative. More details of this can be found at http://www.nederlandschoon.nl

If you have some time we would be very grateful for your support of this excellent initiative, and maybe we will see the difference after the holidays!

A very good time was had by all on Tuesday; we visited Greenwich, saw the Cutty Sark, walked under the river Thames, saw a man playing the tuba with fire, walked over the Millennium bridge, visited St Paul’s cathedral including the staircase from Harry Potter, explored Covent Garden, ate fish and chips and saw the brilliant Commitments musical.

Cheers, Roger, Tish, Connie & Catherine

Traffic and parking

Recently we have had meetings with the gemeente Bergen, the police and the bus company about the traffic situation around the school. There have been many complaints from neighbours about parking in the streets near the Churchillaan and the police have been observing the parking on the roundabout/rotunda, as well as cars going along the Molenweidtje in the wrong direction.

Welcome

 

Our pupils in this 4-18 school are educated in a secure, happy, relaxed yet stimulating and challenging multilingual environment. The learning of languages taught by native speakers is at the core of our mission as we prepare pupils to be aware and responsible European citizens, following a broad European curriculum leading to the highly regarded European Baccalaureate. Most pupils leave the school with a high level of fluency in at least two languages, although it is more common for them to have good language skills in at least three to four languages by the time they finish in the secondary school, including competence in Dutch if they are non-Dutch speakers. Our pupils have the chance to participate in a wide range of educational, cultural and social activities in the school, the local community and in many events across Europe before they go on to study at a range of the top universities in Europe and North America.

Much is done to preserve and promote the cultural identity of the pupils who come from more than forty different countries. A special feature of the system is the teaching of the human sciences (history and geography) in the second language, and this represents part of the original cultural vision of the European Schools. The sciences and Mathematics have an important role in the curriculum which reflects our close relationship with the Joint Research Centre in Petten.

The school also puts emphasis on the creative arts; and music, art and drama are very much part of daily life in lessons, concerts and performances. Pupils participate in a wide range of sporting activities in the school and beyond. We use the latest developments in educational technology to develop ICT skills which prepare pupils for life beyond school, and some participate in distance learning lessons with teachers across the continent which gives our school an even more European flavour.
