Herman Wesslink College in close collaboration with AIS have established an International Secondary school stream.

Hermann Wesselink College has created an International Crossover Class (ICC) in collaboration with Amstelland International Primary School.  This adds a dual language stream to the school that is the equivalent of a year 8 class. This means that the pupils leaving Amstelland can join this class and benefit from lots of Dutch lessons. For instance, this will help them assimilate even more into the Dutch school system. The ICC starts in August 2021 and registrations are already taking place. It is also for children aged 11 or 12 who have just arrived in The Netherlands. It is the perfect solution to allow them a logical entry point to the school system. Above all, this will help to smooth their passage through school. 

This fabulous new opportunity has been created by Wendy van Vliet (project manager), Bert Kozijn (director of the Hermann Wesselink College) and Jacquelene Da Silva.
