Dutch high schools go back fulltime again 

Wednesday 2 June 2021

High schools around the Netherlands go back fulltime this week as the government balances our children’s need for education and companionship with safety concerns. How has it been for our young people since the schools closed in November 2020? And how different will the lessons look when they go back? DutchbuzZ discusses suspended friendships, exam stress and self tests with two pupils from the Hague.

Wool for Warmth has launched its vintage shop of upcycled treasure!

Wednesday 9 June

“Wool for Warmth is not only about keeping the Hague’s homeless people warm in the winter but also about giving something back to our volunteers.” Cathy Delhanty has a talent for attracting treasure, both in terms of volunteers and in terms of donated goods. Her unique model is to use the hidden talents of her volunteers to upcycle the donated items which they then sell, to offset the costs of the charity. In doing so they bring visibility to some undiscovered artists while raising money to support the homeless. Check out their Vinted pages and you may just find your donated items transformed and waiting for a new life!
