From the 2nd to the 4th of March our enthusiastic students embraced a mathematical adventure in the very beautiful (and freezing) Warsaw, Poland. Six of our most remarkable and hard-working students took part in a very demanding Maths competition: the International Schools Maths Teacher Foundation Senior Maths Competition (ISMTF).

There was time to do Maths but also to learn about the repair of the Hubble Telescope in an incredible 3D IMAX documentary narrated by Matt Damon. I would like to thank all of parent's support but, if you'll allow me, my biggest thank you will have to go to our incredible team: Elizaveta, Iris, Simeng, Wendy, Shafi and Mark.


We are already working for next year's competition, which will be in Vienna and I bet what is left of my hair that next year we will bring an award home because of the incredible work that this team is already planning.

Year 8 students went to the Esscher Museum on Friday 9 February. It was a combined trip between the Maths department and the Art department.

By Steve Barlow
Maths Teacher


One of the main reasons we were going to the Escher museum was to see the wonders created by the great artist Maurits Cornelis Escher- a truly phenomenal artist.

Another of our intentions was to get inspired by his paintings to make our own tessellations. "A tessellation of a flat surface is the tiling of a plane using one or more geometric shapes, called tiles, with no overlaps and no gaps. In mathematics, tessellations can be generalized to higher dimensions and a variety of geometries."

We saw the different techniques he used and how he put his imagination into the paper. We also took a photo in a room which had a higher side and a deeper side. This made the heights of different children appear out of proportion. The kids loved it!

Students from year 9 will be investigating this question during the Energy Challenge - a geography unit.


By Wieneke Maris
Geography Teacher


As part of the Energy Challenge students will learn about our school's building, the energy it uses, as well as the energy our solar panels generate. The research question is inspired by the The Hague Climate Pact, that 8 of the major political parties, ranging from right to left, in the city council have signed, pledging that whoever gets elected into the new city council in March, all will strive for The Hague to be Climate Neutral as a city by 2030. As such reaching the goals laid out in the Paris Climate agreement.


During the Energy Challenge, all our year 9 students go on a tour through the building with the building manager Mr. Zuijderduijn, to explore the way our school is heated and cooled and the energy saving measures that are in place.


In groups of four, students will formulate plans based on their research and calculations of how ISH could become climate neutral by 2030; a challenging and important task. The best proposal of each class will be presented to the whole of year 9 as well as the leadership team on April 17.

The High Street Walk

On February 21 2018 the IBCP family had their school trip to the The Hague's main high street. The main point of this walk was to use what they learnt to see how it was used in real life, and see how businesses communicate with their customers.

The group started their journey from Primark and they walked through the Passage. They had a look at the apple store and a quick discussion about the way in which the store uses advertising to approach their target audience. One of the main points that they looked at was the design of the apple store's building that had unique and simple design.


Visit to H&M

The next stop for IBCP family was H&M flagship store. The biggest H&M store in The Hague Centrum. The purpose of this visit was to see how H&M uses different ways to communicate with their customers. H&M's building was one of the main points of discussion, its classic design and simple which makes the store unique.

COMM Museum

After walking through the high street and their visit of different stores they had their last stop at the COMM Museum. The main purpose to visit this place was to understand the different methods of communication. They tried to understand how people communicated in past beginning from the time before the birth of Christ and ending with modern ways of communicating. The museum building has 4 flours, and each floor has different section of method to communicate.
