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?

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.

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!

 

Pub quiz competition was fierce!

Tilburg International Club pub quizby Katie Schweitzer

22 Oct 2020. I went to my first general meeting for the Tilburg International Club the other week. It was a virtual event where they talked about the club, and then afterwards we had a pub quiz.

The “business” part of the meeting was very interesting. It was nice to get an understanding of how the club is organized and run. It was also nice to see all the events they do, and how they have grown over time.

Then we had a trivia quiz, which was really fun! We used our phones to submit answers, and then saw the results and rankings on screen. Although we couldn’t meet in person, I had a good time “hanging out” with everyone and trying to win a prize.

President’s Message – November 2020

Tilburg International Club goodie bag

Yolonda van Riel
President
Tilburg International Club

Like most of you, I have been working from home for what seems like an eternity. I can barely remember what my desk looks like or how long the commute is from home to office. I close my laptop in the early evening and take the long journey of three steps from work to home. What I miss most is the interaction with my family, friends, colleagues, and social activities at local eating and drinking establishments. With everything going on (or not going on may be a better way of stating it!), I am very excited that we have been able to arrange almost all of our tic activities online!Your board has been meeting virtually and working very hard to transition our planned in-person activities to fun, on-line experiences. We are learning a lot about technology as well – lol!

As our world is changing due to the pandemic, it is vital to our mental well-being to interact with each other and keep up-to-date on how everyone is coping. I’m trying to keep a glass half-full attitude by being thankful for good health, the ability to keep working and knowing that I am part of a great group of fellow board members dedicated to finding ways to keep our expat community connected, engaged and offering innovative ways to enjoy some social interaction. I hope you will join us for some of the upcoming fun and unique things we have planned. Your board is looking forward to seeing you at a virtual event soon!

2020 Welcome Event in Het Spoorpark!

Tilburg International Club Welcome Eventby Mala Raman

Welcome to Het Spoorpark!

19 Sept 2020. This year’s Welcome Event was a bit different from other years.  Because of the coronavirus guidelines, our event started at the T-Huis with masks, hand sanitizing and filling out of forms.

Once that was out of the way, expats both new and settled were welcomed by Yolonda van Riel, President of the Tilburg International Club.  After the welcome drink and an official video welcome from the Tilburg vice-Mayor, our intrepid international crew set off to discover the hidden secrets of Het Spoorpark.

tícWalkie Talkies in Koningshoeven

3 Nov. 2019. Here are a few reviews from our walkers!

I really enjoyed getting to know more fellow club-members during the walk. I still had a great time despite the rain, so that just shows how fun it was 🙂
-Katie

A lovely rainy walk  with a fascinating bit of local history thrown in.
-Wendy

“Even though the weather was not so promising, everyone showed up and brought a good attitude. Start feeling the dutch autum-ish weather, Welkom naar Nederland.”
-Lily

We started with 15 enthusiastic walkers at the La Trappe Brouwerij for a 8km loop around the areas of Koningshoeven and Moerenburg. Despite the soggy weather, everyone had a good time
chatting 
and getting to know one another. Afterwards, we found a spot
inside the brewery to have a drink together afterwards.
-Mala

Take a look at some of our other fun walks!
