90 students from nursery to secondary from all language sections, joined by their parents & grand-parents (& 2 dogs) walked over 1500 km!
Wow! – what an event and congratulations to all who participated. We had a record number of ESB participants and the largest group of school children from one Bergen school showing that we really are part of the wider community in Bergen. We reinforced the positive reflection of our school within the local community whilst enjoying and supporting this local initiative.
Thank you to everyone who participated, volunteered and supported our students on this community adventure.
About the Walk
Students discovered Bergen walking some different routes to that of last year. Parents enjoyed the opportunity to meet and get to know each other more in a relaxed, positive environment. It was a wonderful way to share & experience a very Dutch tradition.
The Parents’ Association and parent volunteers once again helped pupils make orange & peppermint “bursts” refreshing our walkers along the route.
The ESB PA also offered refreshments & healthy snacks to round up the whole event on Thursday evening. Thank you to Primary Deputy Director Nadia Roofthoft for awarding all pupils with their medal of achievement at the end of the final route on Thursday evening. Diplomas were distributed in class following the event allowing pupils to share their experiences with their fellow classmates.
Take a look at some photos from the event.
Keep on walking and we hope to see you participating again next year!
