100 years HSL
We are happy to welcome you at the HSL100 alumni website! You will probably be aware by now that the Hollandse School in Singapore is celebrating its 100-year anniversary in 2020! As the largest Dutch International Primary Curriculum (IPC) school abroad, the HSL has been providing quality Dutch primary education to children from two to twelve years old for almost 100 years now. The school prepares the students for the global world, while providing a home abroad.
A centennial comes with a big celebration! There is not only one event, but there will be several festive and unique events, within 100 days, in both Singapore and the Netherlands! These festivities are organized for everyone that is or has been involved with our exceptional school: from students and former students, current and former employees to the local community and our ‘Founding Fathers’. After all, celebrating is something we do together!
We celebrate together by looking back at a century of history while keeping our eyes on the future. 100 years HSL is all about celebrating, connecting, and strengthening.
We celebrate with everyone that is a part of the present or the past of the HSL and we connect the past, the present, the future, and everyone that is a part of that. We find connection with the Netherlands and Singapore. As a school with a rich history and great focus on innovation, we also connect the traditional techniques with technological modernization. We connect ourselves with the future of our children and the Hollandse School.
The schools’ ambition for the next 100 years is to provide the same quality education as the past century and to be a place where children feel at home. The centennial celebration is an excellent way to strengthen the bonds. Not just the alliance with everyone that is part of our past, present, and future, but also with the Netherlands and Singapore. We show who we are and what we stand for by celebrating the 100-year anniversary in a very special way.
We would like to invite you to take a look at this website. Here you will find more information about our anniversary programme and you will be able to share old photos and/or videos with us.
It’s important that you register as alumnus on the website. It is a two-step registration process. After you’ve signed up, you will receive an email with more information on how to become part of the “alumni community” on ‘Social Schools’. The Socials Schools platform will enable you to contact other alumni and see which of your old friends or colleagues have also registered as HSL alumni. It’s a secured platform and is therefore a safe place to share photos and videos of the centennial events. The sharing of imagery on social media channels, such as Facebook and Instagram, will be on a limited scale.
So, what are you waiting for? Sign up and celebrate this unique milestone with us. Share old memories with your former classmates and relive your time in Singapore!
