sh-dutch-school-sinterclassThe Shanghai Dutch School, which is part of the British International School Shanghai, Puxi Campus, celebrates the arrival of Sinterklaas every year, and this year was no different.

All the children were very excited when they received a letter from Sinterklaas that stated that he would come to BISS Puxi for a visit. He had one problem though – he did not bring enough helpers, so he asked the students to help him with filling the shoes at night, baking pepernoten, wrapping presents and performing and writing poems.

The students from Year 8 wrote a puppet script and performed for the Primary students. The students from Years 9 and 10 were accepted into the Sinterklaas Helper School and they all passed their exams with flying colors. These students were then officially added to the Sinterklaas staff.

When all the children and helpers were prepared and ready, Sinterklaas arrived and all the children could shake hands with him. As all the children had been good, according to the Big Sint Book, they all received yummy candies.

Mayke Van Krevel, Head of the Shanghai Dutch School, said: “The children all had a great time, dancing and singing for Sinterklaas. At the Shanghai Dutch School we really enjoy being able to bring these traditions from home to the children at our school.”
