What we learned about early Dutch education

We were happy to have Annebet from New2NL.com to give us an introduction to the Dutch school system. We had a great session with lots of great questions about Dutch education for young children.

Tilburg International Club Dutch Education webinarWe had a Zoom call that covered all kinds of early education topics including, educational philosophies (Waldorf/Steiner, Montessori, Dalton, etc.), preschools, how to apply to the schools, special needs education, programs for gifted children, schools for newcomers and much more. Attendees had the opportunity to learn more about how to find a suitable schools, understanding the options and the philosophy of before and after school child care.

Prior to the webinar, members were able to submit questions that Annebet answered during the call including:

  • How to keep an eye on progress of your child without knowing Dutch.
  • How we can help our child in his study/homework without knowing Dutch.
  • When to register for basisschool?

#FBF: Book Club Review of We All Begin As Strangers

Next week we’ll meet up for another Book Club.  For #FlashbackFriday, here’s a look back at We All Begin As Strangers.

x–x–x–x–x–x

12 November 2018. Review by Melissa Donders. After reading the book, We All Begin As Strangers by Harriet Cummings, an interesting discussion was had at tíc’s Book Club.

The book was set in a small village in England where the inhabitants were frightened when small items in their homes would be moved around, or things went missing. Slightly based on a true story, the book followed the lives of different characters and how the intruder, whom they dubbed ‘The Fox’, impacted their life.

Tilburg International Club Holiday greeting

Movie review: The Honest Thief

30 Oct 2020. by Martina Leonard. We were so lucky to have had our movie night before the 2nd closure of cinemas!

Hoping to cut a deal, a professional bank robber agrees to return all the money he stole in exchange for a reduced sentence. But when two FBI agents set him up for murder, he must now go on the run to clear his name (“In-and-Out Bandit.” ) and bring them to justice.

Tilburg International Club Expat Movie NightMany thanks to Anne for arranging the bag of goodies, a must for munching during the film. All 10 tickets were taken and the usual suspects attended at the Pathe. We met in the lobby and had no trouble recognizing each other with masks!!

I was excited to see Liam Neeson in a role as the baddie….. turns out he was the bad guy turned good !!! and all because of Love. What a shock… poor Liam has aged drastically, his acting skills also deteriorated. The rest of the cast were cutout carboard actors!! All in all, a forgettable non-thriller, lacking action for 90 mins. Some scenes were staged so badly it was laughable…… and there were some laughs during the time spent in the cinema …..

Unfortunately due to restrictions there was not a real opportunity to discuss and share opinions afterwards over drinks and nibbles ….(those were the days!) I will not be going to the sequel …….Love after Lockup …….

 

#TBT: Holiday Borrel and Ugly Sweaters!

This year our celebrations are going to look a lot different than previous years, but for #throwbackthursday, in honor of our traditional holiday borrel and massively ugly sweaters, let’s take a look at what was on display last year.

20 December 2019

As always, it was crazy crowded at the annual Holiday borrel at Cafe Bakker with plenty of ugly sweaters to go around.  Take a look!
