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.

On the 26th of September, the school celebrated the inaugural Silverback’s Day. The students came to school dressed up in Black, Silver or White to show their support for the Silverbacks. With music playing in the background, and a mascot greeting almost every student that came in through the main entrance, its safe to say that the school spirit was at an all-time high.
Furthermore, ISH hosted the International School of Brussels, and for the first time ever we had 7 teams competing at the same time in various sports. The results were impressive, to say the least, and the JV and Varsity teams took part in a spirited game of Dodgeball prior to their respective matches.
Overall, the day was a massive success, and we would like to thank Mr Boutayeb and the entire team for providing the students with a tremendous experience. Congratulations to all the teams who played, and a massive thank you to everyone who came out to support them.
The results are as follows:
Varsity Boys - Drew 1-1
JV Boys - Lost 1-4
Varsity Girls - Won 5-1
JV Girls - Won 6-0
Varsity Girls - Lost 2-3
Varsity Boys - Won 3-2
Varsity Girls - Won 3-1
Here are some pictures of the day.

On the 26th of September, the Year 5 and 6 students had their Annual Sports Day. The day begun on the sports field, where students took part in various activities like the SturTee Challenge, Baton Relay, Shot Put and many more.
The students had a great time. With 90's music playing in the background, and students cheering on their peers, the competition became more and more intense.
After spirited competition, Team Demeter emerged as the winning team and Team Hephaestus won the Fair Play Award.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the PE Teachers, Staff Members and all the other volunteers who put in a lot of time and effort to create a memorable experience for the students.

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.
