During the month of November, the staff at ISH will be raising money and awareness for the Movember Charity. This incredible charity that aims to make a difference for men's health – in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. 

Every November the Movember charity aims to make a difference for men's health raising money and awareness in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. We did Movember two years ago raising €1,127 for this fantastic cause.

The Stats
When Prostate cancer is detected early, prostate cancer survival rates are better than 98%. Find it late, and those survival rates drop below 26%.

Testicular cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in young European men.
 

Men’s Mental Health 
According to Movember, globally 3 out of 4 suicides are men and that each year, more than 500,000 men die by suicide around the world.
Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-old men globally.

This year ISH would like it to become bigger and better raising more money and awareness than in previous years. 

Grow, Move & Host.

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 plastish@ishthehague.nl 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,

PlastISH

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!
