At our recent Administrative Board the project leader from OCW (the Dutch Ministry of Education) gave a presentation. He confirmed that it was the decision of the OCW to move the school from its current site, although the decision will have to be supported by the Board of Governors in the future.
At the moment the councils of Alkmaar, Castricum and Zaanstad are all looking at the possibilities, and once the OCW have decided which option to choose they will then present the information for approval in Brussels. We cannot imagine that this will happen before April 2020 at the earliest.
In his presentation the project leader gave an indication of the timescale. He stated that he could not foresee the project being completed before 2025.
The various groups involved in the school community are meeting to discuss the position of the school. When there is more news we will let you know.
