We've started!

Nijmegen, March 5 2020
The exchange 2020 begins somewhat different than we expected. Because of the spread of the corona virus three of our partnerschools had to decide to cancel their visit at the last moment. So instead of ten, we welcomed seven visiting groups this morning. Nevertheless the aula was overcrowded during the introduction and instructions for the rest of the exchange and the students from Celje, Ljutomer, Budapest, Linares and Bailèn started their stay eagerly.

The programme will take place as scheduled with a mass visit to Zaanse Schans and Amsterdam on Friday, the Stagenight at The Vereeniging on Monday and Disco at Doornroosje on Tuesday. In between there will be lessons, workshops, a Nijmegen City Tour and lots of fun.

Hopefully the enthousiasm of our classes without a partner will not be diminished and all our classes can make a visit abroad at the end of the month.

But now, first, the Nijmegen Experience! About 200 foreign students with their teachers all together enjoying their stay at the SSgN.

Corona and the exchange program

On this page we will keep you informed about the latest news concerning the corona virus in relation to our exchange program.

Brief ouders 3Vb Sarno d.d. 24 februari 2020.

Official statement February 26, 2020 concerning the exchange program 2020 for all our exchange partners.

In addition to this statement, I would like to address the fact that we are aware of the developments of the current affairs of the last few days. 

We remain in close contact with the governement's channels of information and at this moment they see no reason why an exchange could not take place.

We would like to take the time over the weekend to see if this advice remains intact. On Monday we will have a meeting with all involved parties to make an informed decision about how to proceed.

For now, we will remain calm and take into account all options. We are available for consultation and feedback. We will keep you posted. 

At this moment we have notice that Sarno, Wolow and Pskov will not participate.
