Sinterklaas Visits BISS Puxi Dutch School

10 december 2015

Last Friday after school, BISS Puxi Dutch School students were excited due to rumours that Sinterklaas would pay the school a visit.

After a good hour of waiting, suddenly two of Sinterklaas' security staff showed up and guarded the entrance of Stage One.

Once children entered Stage One, there was a live connection with Sinterklaas on an iPad, but he clearly didn't know how to work with modern technology.

He decided a real meet and greet was the best way to celebrate his birthday and after a song or two, he arrived at the primary gate.

The children had a lovely evening filled with joy, songs and pepernoten, a typical Sinterklaas treat.
