NEW2SCHOOL EVENT – Sunday, 19 September
Did your children start school in the Netherlands this or last week? Exciting!
We hope that they have made a positive start. No doubt you have a lot of experiences to share, and plenty of questions to ask. If so, then this New2school event is for you!
On Sunday, 19 September between 2 and 3:30 pm, we invite all new international families to the Artisplein, where you can share your stories of the first 4 weeks with other families who are also new2school.
You may walk-in as you please.
While the children play, Annebet van Mameren from New2NL will be ready to answer all your questions related to education in the Netherlands.

TIP: the children might want to play in the fountains at the piazza, so you probably would like to bring a set of dry clothes.

As you might have already experienced, one of the most unreliable factors in the Netherlands is the weather. If rain is forecasted on the day of the event, we’ll have to reschedule. Please make sure to sign up with your correct email address, so we can reach you if needed.
