Mayor Jan van Zanen at the European School

Yesterday, on November 29th, 2023, the European School The Hague had the honour of hosting Mayor Jan van Zanen for an enriching tour of our vibrant Secondary school campus.

Accompanied by Mr. Gerko Visee from The Hague International Centre and Ms. Camilla van Kooten from the Gemeente Den Haag, Mayor van Zanen explored the innovative learning spaces and engaged with the dynamic atmosphere of our school.

Guided by our Director, Mr. Wouter Abrahamse, and the Head of School Secondary, Ms. Juliet Palmer, the tour provided a first-hand look at the exceptional educational environment fostered at ESH. We were also delighted to have the presence of Mr. Arjan Kastelein, the Executive Chair of the Rijnlands Lyceum Foundation.

Following the insightful tour, Mayor van Zanen engaged in a meaningful conversation with four of our exceptional students, gaining valuable insights into the unique experiences of international students in The Hague. A special thank you to the ESH Secondary students Romy, Lorelai, Alessandro and Kate.

A heartfelt thank you to Mayor van Zanen for graciously dedicating time from his busy schedule to visit our Secondary school campus. We eagerly anticipate the next opportunity to welcome him back, continuing the exchange of ideas and fostering strong connections within our community.
