Dear former Rhinelanders,

Today we are closing the school year with all students. It’s a festive day! Or rather: a whole week! Wednesday we said a grand farewell to two colleagues who are now going to enjoy their retirement: Tineke Broer and Cees van Damme. And yesterday we had a wonderful final party together in the backyard. Once again completely as before!

Over the past few weeks, we were able to present havo or vwo diplomas to nearly 150 students. Currently, some students are still taking re-exams in the exceptional 3rd period. For them, we will know the results next Thursday. All DP students passed this year, a particularly fine achievement. Their graduation day will be at the beginning of the school year.

No doubt you have already concluded that the postponed 65th anniversary has been tuned out. In a school year with much extra organizational burden due to corona measures – especially quarantines of colleagues and students – we left that organization for a while. At 70, we are going to overtake everything! That will be in school year 2025-2026.

Happy summer to all!

Erica van Langen,
