From 7 to 10 March, seven GIN students, together with Mr Toye and Ms Maris went to the annual Global Issues Network (GIN) conference in Luxembourg. Below three of the ISH students who went: Boaz, Tinkara and Sofia share their experiences

"The trip as a whole was an amazing and invigorating experience! It was filled with learning opportunities not offered by a "regular" school: such as giving a speech in front of 250 people, and having workshops where you collaborate with new students on a daily basis while thinking of sustainable solutions for global issues. We also heard from CEO's of different organisations (linked to GIN), who shared very interesting information!" Boaz van der Schaaf

"This year's GIN Conference in Luxembourg was an experience that I will never forget. I learned so many new things, met different students from all over the world, that are eager to take action on many different issues around the world. During the 3-day conference I enjoyed in the different workshops such as talking about fascism in Italy, learning about a company called TechnoGreen SA, and having a look through the process that Zach Ingrasci has taken to create his documentaries. The conference gave us many ideas that we brought back and we are already working on now." Tinkara Muri

"After a very exciting yet exhausting trip to Luxembourg, I have come back glowing and ready to take action at the ISH. We had an overwhelming amount of inspiration for sustainability being given to us from all directions, coming from school students like me, NGO's, individual initiatives, and more, and so many ideas have been created. One of my favorite guest speakers was the creator of "living on one dollar", and he had a workshop where we learned about how to film our own movies about issues that we were really passionate about. Apart from the actual conference, I really enjoyed meeting new people that all had something very interesting to say, and also building relationships with the people that came from ISH with me. I really enjoyed going to Luxembourg, and if I was allowed to go next year I definitely would." Sofia Sanchez-Aro

Within just a week of the conference we already have several new initiatives getting off the ground: an innovative sustainable toilet paper scheme which uses our recycled paper, a baking club at an elderly home in our neighborhood and a school building project to help address poverty in Tanzania. We can't wait to see what this motivated and inspiring group of students will come up with next!

Boaz, Bruno, Finn, Heqi, Mehrbanoo, Sofia, Tinkara, Mr Toye and Ms Maris

The Geography Department were very honored to have Dr. Joseph Kerski visit this week, from The University of Denver and Esri, on his way to Eurogeo Conference in Germany.

By Bella Mandry
Geography Teacher

Dr. Kerski is a leading international force in the world of international mapping, Global Information Systems, having completed recent lectures to the Royal Geographic Association and an inspirational Ted Talk on the importance of mapping in society today.

Online mapping is used in national governments, emergency response planners, healthcare, agriculture and many other sectors to interpret human and physical patterns and trends. It is therefore key that we ensure that our geography students are equipped with the skill of making and interpreting digital maps.

Dr. Kerski shared his passion for all things spatial with the year 12 geography students. Students were able to fully immerse themselves in the ArcGIS software and create their own maps during the session. These skills will prove to be invaluable for students as they collect field data for their internal assessment over the next few months, in the wider curriculum of Geography and hopefully in their future!

A huge congratulations to the ISH Girls Varsity Basketball team who dominated the International Secondary Sports Teams (ISST) Division 2 tournament. Not only did they beat rivals the British School of The Netherlands (BSN) 47-33 in an amazing final, they did so on home territory, in front of hundreds of supporters. An occasion that will go down in history!

The performance of the team during this entire tournament is a wonderful testament to the determination and skill of these girls to have competed so consistently throughout, despite not being the favourites to win. Spurred on by coaches Kim Adam and Alec Nightingale they elevated their game to greater heights. This win puts them in the Division 1 conference next year.

It has been a great tournament from start to finish. From the wonderful performance by the ISH Orchestra on the floor of the gyms to the electric atmosphere in a jam packed gym to witness the crowning moment. For their great performance Alara and Blanca were selected for the All-Tournament Team. Well done to all involved!

Huge congratulations and thanks go to Omar Boutayeb, our Athletics Director for making it all happen.
