On Saturday the 16th of February, RISS hosted the NGO Debate for Peace around whose visit we built a one-day Model United Nations experience, which we called the Debate for Peace/RISS Summit.
RISS had a very successful week last week! Grade 9 students won both 1st and 2nd place in the first interscholastic debating tournament against the Wolfert Bilingual department last Thursday.
Our teacher of Chinese shares the following:
"It was our first small Chinese culture trip to visit China Town in Rotterdam. Everybody was very excited and tried to have conversations in Chinese with the people there."
We will be celebrating the annual RISS International Language Day on the 21st of February. During this even we will be honouring RISS' language and cultural diversity.
Do you have any books at home that you would like to get rid of? Please consider donating your books to RISS for the library. We are collecting books written in any language!
