‘’Mysterious Visitor’’ Reported in Principal’s Office

03 December 2015

Last Sunday, teachers from The Shanghai Dutch School at BISS Puxi were taken aback by the unannounced arrival of tall figure in red coat.

  • Sinterklaas

  • Sinterklaas

It soon became clear that the visitor was in fact, Sinterklaas.

Accompanied by seven highly trained, unapproachable security staff members, he entered the school and was even spotted in and around the principal’s office.

The group inspected the campus and Sinterklaas, whose true age is unknown, seemed to be struggling a bit with high-tech gadgets like iPads, the interactive white board and the security gates at the entrance.

So how did he get in? And what exactly was he doing in Mr Foyle’s office?

Is he trying to spy on secret high tech information we keep hidden inside the secondary school?

Unfortunately we found out too late about his actions and didn’t get the chance to interrogate him.

But we have heard rumours he will return this Friday to pay a visit to the students of the Dutch school.

Let’s see what happens.

Chris Samsom, Head of Shanghai Dutch School
