Last Wednesday, 5 December saw the Primary campus visited by none other than Sinterklaas himself! Accompanied by two of his Chimney Piets, Sinterklaas was welcomed at the school gates by a throng of excited children. Some of them were even lucky enough to take photos and shake hands with Sint himself.
Sinterklaas then led a school assembly, where the classes of ISTwente had an opportunity to ask him questions. We learned that Sint is 347 years old! After performing our school song for Sinterklaas, the classes separated into workshops, each with an exciting activity, interspersed with a visit from Sint, who seemed to know everything about our young learners, and had gifts for everyone!
After a busy, fun-filled day, the children gathered outside to bid Sinterklaas a fond farewell (and collect an extra handful or two of pepernoten). Looking forward to your visit next year Sinkterklaas!
