Our Year 12 product designers visited the inspiring Amsterdam Fashion Academy. They took part on an up-cycling workshop, where they learned how to reshape and customize an old t-shirt into something new and fresh. They met other students, saw patterns and industrial knitting machines and even modeled their creations on a photoshoot ...
They came back inspired to develop their final Design & Technology Internal Assessment.

Year 11 Geography students recently completed a project on 'volunteer tourism', a growing international travel trend which involves combining tourism and short-term volunteering in developing countries.

By Bella Mandry
Geography Teacher

Students looked at the reasons behind the growth and popularity of this new form of tourism and the potential impacts on local communities in terms of sustainable development. The project culminated in a debate where students looked at all sides of the voluntourism issue in the context of an island state whose economy depends on tourism.

The project was the result of a partnership between the Geography department and Stahili Foundation, an NGO which works to promote children's rights and sustainable development in Kenya. Rob Oliver, who leads Stahili's Education and Advocacy work, took part in the lessons alongside the year 11 Geography teachers.

On Wednesday 25 April, 21 students from Glee Club, VivaVoce and Primary Choir at ISH sang at the ANZAC memorial service. As part of the ceremony, the students sang a hymn (abide with me), the Dutch, Australian and New Zealand national anthems. The ceremony took place at the Westduin cemetery and was attended by the Australian and the New Zealand ambassadors as well as other Dutch officials. Our students represented ISH with great dignity and sang beautifully. The ambassadors themselves were very moved by the singing and have taken the time to come and talk to the students and to thank them for their participation in this important day.

By Tomoko Ogusu
Music Teacher

We would like to leave with the student's own impression and words of this event:

"The whole experience was quite cool and exciting. From rehearsals, to making harmonies with my fellow students from primary and secondary, to actually performing at such a special ceremony. Performing for Ambassadors and other dignitaries was very thrilling. All the important people made me nervous at first but I felt much better once we started singing. I feel very honored and privileged that I was part of something that remembers and celebrates fallen heroes. Y6 Jacinta M. Santiago (Primary Choir)"

"This was my first time attending a memorial ceremony and it was a really unique experience. I was very honored to meet the ambassadors from Europe and Australia and I was also very moved by their speeches along with the life stories of the soldiers who died in the war. It was such a lovely opportunity for us Secondary students to collaborate and sing with the Primary students which I found very enjoyable. It'd be great if we can do these kinds of events more often where students from different choirs come together to sing for good causes. Y10 Elena Liu (VivaVoce)"

"The ANZAC event was wonderful to participate in. The emotional, political, and cultural significance that the event holds is powerful. The speeches, memorials, and honors that were given were very moving so I'm glad to have contributed in setting the solemn, moving atmosphere. Observing this event was interesting too, because of the important people who attended, and because it was the first memorial service I have attended (and participated in). I really like how people from countries all over the world are brought together for a common, peaceful cause. Y12 Theo Edge (Glee Club)"

This Tuesday 17th of April, the finale of the year 9 geography energy challenge took place. All the best plans from each class were presented to the whole of year 9 and judged by Ms Gray, Ms Stellema and Mr Zuijderduijn, as well as Mr Oudshoorn, one of the initiators of "het Haags Klimaat pact" (The Hague Climate Pact. The Geography Energy Challenge is based around the energy transition; the change of our energy system that is based on fossil fuels, into a system that is based on sustainable, renewable energy.

By Wieneke Maris
Geography Teacher

Students researched, in small groups, the energy use of the school, and proposed strategies to reduce this to become climate neutral in 2030, so as to be in line with the Paris climate agreement and " het Haags Klimaatpact".

As a part of their research all year 9 students went on a tour of the school with Mr Zuijderduijn to learn about the way ISH uses and reduces energy.

Congratulations to the winners of the challenge; the team from 9C; Victoria, Elisa, Maya and Marko. The jury was impressed with their plans to install Pavegen tiles that generate electricity from footsteps and to hold a cycling competition to promote sustainable transport. Well done to all the year 9 students for their research and creative solutions!
