This year, Arina Naaz was chosen to be an Alderman in the Madurodam College of Mayor's and Alderman (B&W College). She will be replacing June Derz, who did a tremendous job last year.

 

Here is a little recap by Arina

This year, I was chosen to be the Alderman in the B&W college of Madurodam whilst representing the International School of The Hague. I am taking over from June Derz (Y13) who did an excellent job during her term in office.

It all began with Princess Beatrix, who became the first Youth Mayor of Madurodam when she was 14 years old. Princess Beatrix carried on this task for 28 years until she became the Queen of the Netherlands. The B&W college of Madurodam consists of 10 students from different high schools in The Hague.

The B&W College of Madurodam gives young students (aged 15 to 18 years old) the opportunity to become the Mayor or Alderman of Madurodam. We represent the smallest city of the Netherlands during several different occasions and include a working visit to the Mayor of The Hague.

We also play an important part in the Madurodam Kinderfonds, the foundation that donates 600,000 to 700,000 euros yearly on behalf of Madurodam to charities for children. The council contributes in making decisions on the charities that Madurodam supports and helps in assessing the applicants that the Madurodam Kinderfonds receives annually by visiting these organizations and reporting this to the board of Madurodam Kinderfonds.

 Since its founding, Madurodam has donated almost 34 million euros to charities that stimulate children to be a better person. They also motivate them to connect with other people, regardless of age and their background. Madurodam believes that if children are there for each other on a small scale, then they are also of great importance to society.

Last Sunday, the school hosted a Welcome Event for all new parents. It was a lovely occasion to get to know each other, and for new parents to converse with other people who had just moved to a new country. Tours of the school were organized by the Connectors, and these tours were divided into home languages, so there was an opportunity for the parents to converse in their home language. It was also an opportunity for the families to familiarise themselves with the school building and their new environment. There seemed to be a great atmosphere, and we hope that everyone enjoyed themselves. Many thanks go out to everyone who played their part in making this event a great success.

There's a buzz in the air...the first students and their parents are here. The school is here to welcome them, as well as our Parent and Student Connectors and our Parents Association. We hope you have a great school year 2018-2019 at ISH.

Our alumni will remember this feeling well. The anticipation and excitement of the new students and teachers. This is one of the lovely characteristics of being in an international school, and it balances out the sadness you feel when you have to say goodbye to your friends. 

We hope that you feel you have all the information you need. Please know that these parent and student bodies will be able to point you in the right direction if you need any help. Or you can always send a message to us at communications@ishthehague.nl. We may not have all the answers, but we'll try to make sure you get them.
