Sinterklaas, the Dutch St. Nicolas, is supposed to visit Shanghai Dutch School @ BISS Puxi next Friday December 1st to celebrate his birthday.

However, the students and teachers received some very upsetting messages from his Women and Men in Black. Sinterklaas seems to be missing! His ship got into a big storm and a lot of the presents for the children in Shanghai were lost due to the heavy weather. We are now afraid that he might be too ashamed to come. His W/MiB visited school as part of their Shanghai inspection. They noticed some significant changes in and around the school, but as far as we now know they seem very positive and they are willing to come. Fingers crossed that our Dutch and Belgian students can convince him to visit our school.

Sinterklaas, just in case you read this newsletter, please visit our school! We would love to celebrate your birthday with you and we don’t care about the missing presents!

Lots of love,

Everybody from Shanghai Dutch School at BISS Puxi

Mrs. Chris Samsom, Head of Shanghai Dutch School
