An exciting email came in a few months ago asking if we would be interested in travelling to The Netherland for a school visit… And ever since then, we’d been really looking forward to it!
So last Tuesday we got up at the crack of dawn and headed for Glasgow airport, under pouring rain.
Arriving at Schiphol airport, we quickly caught a connecting train to Eindhoven. One of our host was waiting for us there at the station, strategically wearing an unmissable bright pink hat (not pictured here!).
Meeting people from all over the world was extremely inspiring. Everyone there (pupils, teachers, technicians and librarians) came from different corners of the globe, and it was great learning a little bit about their backgrounds.
Many many thanks to Renske, Majola, the Parent Committee, and the head of secondary, Marcella Watts (incidentally from Dundee!) for inviting us to their wonderful school and making us feel so very welcome. Also thank you to Joy, David, Greta and all the teachers for all their support and interest during the workshop sessions. And thanks too to David (a Frenchman who also lived in Glasgow!) for showing us the city and taking time just to chill out.
