New2school online event (free)

Have your children just started school in the Netherlands? We hope that they have made a positive start.

Or maybe you are planning on moving later?

No doubt you still have a lot of questions to ask.

In the past years, I used to organize a face-to-face event for new parents to give them the opportunity to ask their questions about schools, and to meet and share their experiences with other new families. That was always fun and some long-lasting friendships have originated there.

This year is a bit different, unfortunately.

Therefore I have decided to switch to an online event instead.

During this interactive online New2school event, I, Annebet van Mameren from New2NL, will first answer your questions, which you may already ask in advance.

After the Q&A, all participants get a few minutes to introduce themselves. Maybe in this way you’ll meet another family with children at the same school, who also come from your home town, or who live in the same neighbourhood. If you want to stick around to ask some more questions, you may. If you’ve had enough, that’s also ok, of course.

Hopefully in this way you’ll understand better what’s going on at your school and you’ll still get to know some new people.

If you give permission, I could share your contact details with another family of your interest, so you could meet-up later.

Thursday, 3 September at 8:30 pm CEST.

Of course you may also attend when you have lived in the Netherlands for a longer time already, or when you haven’t relocated yet.

When you sign up through Eventbrite, I’ll email you a link to the online event closer to the date.

I look forward to ‘meeting’ you all!


Best wishes,

Annebet van Mameren
