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.

Last week Y7 students visited the Filmhuis in The Hague. This was a successful trip and a great experience. Students produced their own fiction and animation movies. Both the workshop leaders and teachers were very impressed by our students and their final results. We selected one of the movies to show here the success of the trip. All movies showed dedication from the students. The movies have been shared with the students. Your child, will surely be proud to show you.
