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!
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.
Spirit Prize: Dragons

Students in Primary Year 2 to 3, bagged the tulips in their decorated tulip bags for the "Buy a Tulip. Help a Girl" charity under the wonderful supervision of Year 12 and 13 IBCP students.
This campaign has been timed to coincide with the International Day of the Girl on 11 October 2018, an initiative by the United Nations. A hundred percent of the profits from this campaign will go directly to the Bodong Girls' School in Lumla, North-East India.
Many thanks to all who contributed to this event and bought a bag. So far we have raised 600 Euros!
WELL DONE PRIMARY and IBCP

Every week, the reception teachers rent an new animal for their students. The students are given the opportunity to take care of the animal, and each week they get to interact with a new one. They have had the pleasure of taking care of a rabbit, snails, spiders and last week they welcomed a rat snake.
In addition to having a new animal every week, the reception students also get a chance to name the animal. Some of the names they came up with for the snake include Pinky Pie, Elsa and Rosie. In the end, they chose to name it Pinky Pie. Here are some pictures of the students with the snake.
