This year that day was September 19th. The Dutch Consul-General of Shanghai has started a tradition of bringing round orange cupcakes on this day to all Dutch students in Shanghai. Obviously consul-general Mrs Adema also visited our school to treat the Dutch students at BISS with colourful cake. Mrs Adema was welcomed by an enthusiastic committee of KS1 and 2 students, teachers and parents. On the same day she was present at the Jewish Museum in Shanghai where she spoke to our Dutch speaking students from Year 6, 7, 8 and 9. They were lucky to visit a special exhibition about Anne Frank which is currently shown in the museum. It tells the story of the well- known Dutch girl and her diary, the annex and the concentration camps in the Second World War. It was a memorable day which ended with the great taste of freedom in the shape of an orange cup cake.
