Last week we had an inspiring kick-off coaching session for our speakers with Tedx Coach Jonathan Talbott.
The session was very intense. It required lots of thinking, reflections, and sweating from the speakers side, but at the same time it was very inspiring and eye-opening to learn the secret ingredients of a powerful Tedx talk.
Thank you Jonathan! Thank you to all participants!

Here are some impressions of the session:

On Monday 20 April 2015 The International School of The Hague opened its doors to de Haagse Brug/The Hague Bridge, a part of The Hague municipality which organises events for residents of The Hague and expats and informs them about their international city. Throughout the evening there were performances from our own student-led singing group Nano Voice and ISH orchestra accompanied in two songs by Sean from Year 12. There were interesting speeches from Willem Post, International Advisor, Pjer Wijsman, our Business Manager and Ingrid van Engelshoven, the Alderman for Loosduinen (the part of The Hague where the school is located). Afterwards there was an opportunity for those interested to take a tour round the school

The evening was a great success and lovely way for the local community to able to see what The International School is all about. To see that it's not the big scary school where they all speak English, but that many of our community make up an integral part of the neighbourhood. English and Dutch were expertly combined in much of the speeches which made both the locals and the expats feel at home.

Here are some photos to give you an idea of the evening.

On Tuesday this week 25 students from The International School of the Hague, who are interested in pursuing a career in international law ,spent a day at The International Criminal Tribunal For The Former Yugoslavia. During this visit they were able to watch the court in session and observe one of the prosecution lawyers cross-examine a key trial witness.

The programme also included meeting a number of key members of the ICTY including a Senior Trial Attorney, ICTY Interns, a Conference Interpreter, the Senior Prosecutor and one of the Judges. 

During their visit the students were able to have a special insight into the workings of the ICTY and benefitted tremendously from this experience. 

Many thanks go to Carolyn Edgerton for arranging this fantastic opportunity for our students.
