Imagine walking around in a dinosaur museum or gallery with a guide helping you learn everything about dinosaurs and fossils. Today the Year 3P students went on an exciting 'virtual field trip' together with the Year 5 students from 5M.
The Y5 shared their newly-explored technology skills and demonstrated the iPad application Google Expeditions to the younger students. The app Google Expeditions is an educational app to bring virtual objects and places into the classroom. As real explorers, students went on a Dinosaur Walk at the Natural History Museum in Melbourne Australia.

The Dutch Primary Department has been doing a series of lessons related to PrinsjesDag.  We had an organised trip to Madurodam yesterday, where we learned about how the gemeente (municipality) functions and how cities are designed and built.  The children created their own "Demo - City" and then had a tour around Madurodam where, in teams, they had to decide how and where to spend the money or budget.  

After this, we went to the Binnenhof and to the Tweede Kamer.  We were lucky enough to see the prime minister!  These lessons really brought politics to life and everyone enjoyed being part of the democratic process.

We successfully raised all the funds we need, and the machines have been ordered! They are going to arrive in November and PlastISH will lead a workshop during GIN Day (22nd November). If you would like to use the machines to make products out of recycled plastic, this is something for you! While we are waiting, we will set up a permanent work space for them. Special thanks to all donors and people who supported us. We couldn't accomplish all this without your support!

PlastISH was also involved at the Co-Curricular Fair, a great event where clubs at ISH promoted their initiatives. At the PlastISH stand, students had the chance to shred plastic bottles with the shredder and were left fascinated by the results! 

If you weren't able to sign up but are still interested in joining the team, send an email to and we'll contact you with more information. Please include your name (first and last), class and all times you are available throughout the week.

So much to see and do! 


Have a nice day and keep recycling,

500 students from Years 8-12 took part in the Walk of Hope on Friday 21st September, walking from ISH to the Peace Palace to mark the International Day of Peace.
Their aim was to advocate for the oneness of humanity, spreading the words of peace, unity and love amongst our community. Over 1500 students participated in the event representing 7 schools, both Dutch and international. The event was supported by lessons conducted by Year 12 as well as a Youth Conference on the following Wednesday which was beautifully run by Bhavika Adapa and Boaz van der Schaaf of Year 12 along with former students Krister Palo and Femke Gunneweg.
In addition, we raised funds for the Satsang Foundation which was set up by the Walk's founder, Sri M, to provide quality education for rural children in India. As a school, we raised over €3000 with mentor group 8I raising €576.41 alone! This will provide the kind of opportunities our students have to over 17 children for a year. Well done all - it was a special day!

The past week has seen two very exciting Sports Days. We had our Year 7&8 students compete in dodgeball, frisbee football and fun games. Our Year 9 students had to complete in 12 different tasks on the Survival route and Robinson Crusoe tasks on the field, and our Year 10&11 students chose two out of six activities to compete in, which were basketball, volleyball, softball, football, touch and ultimate frisbee.
All house captains were around cheering on the students, putting face paint on and running some activities!!! The students taking part showed determination, good team spirit, and a general sense of having fun during the different events.
Massive thank you to the whole PHE department, the PA, the concierges, the staff that came out to support our students, and of course the students themselves.
Here are the final results from each Sports day.  
Year 7&8
