Challenger Certificate Awards and Farewell
Challenger Certificate Awards and Farewell

"What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals."
— Henry David Thoreau


Last week, Challenger students (Y10-Y11) had their last Challenger lesson for the 2018/2019 academic year!


As you know the Challenger Programme has been filled with various activities and assignments this past academic year. Students who have fulfilled all requirements of the programme received a Certificate Award by Mr. Matthews and Ms. van der Horst.
We were honoured to have so many guest speakers who agreed to come to ISH and to share their knowledge and experience with us.

A message from Mrs. van der Horst:

After nine successful and meaningful years at ISH, initiating and coordinating The Challenger Programme for Y8-Y11 students, I have to say goodbye and move to Bulgaria for a few years due to my husband's job at the Dutch Embassy.

I have had a great pleasure to work with so many wonderful, curious and motivated students, wonderful staff and be part of our lovely community. 

Also, it was a great honour to organise TEDx youth Events and to work as Careers counsellor- What a privilege! 

You are all part of my professional journey and a great life experience.

I wish you much success in the future and good luck!

Enjoy learning and exploring,

Yarona van der Horst
