At Kirreweie in Burgh-Haamstede they made it the first festive day at school. The schoolyard is decorated with banners and the red carpet is outside. Each child receives a rose from the teachers upon arrival.

Lonneke van Meggelen-Alblas brought her son Mees (8) into Group F today, which forms a class with Group F. As is often the case, a mother will probably find it more exciting than her child. I wasn’t really allowed to go with him, and he didn’t think it was necessary. But I wanted it myself. It’s a whole new category. And my daughter Lizzie is out of school. We are entering another phase.”

Mays himself is particularly interested in him. “No, I don’t think it’s exciting. It’s actually very easy. What I like the most is that you can now work a lot with the computer.”

Get into the beat

At De Moerschans Primary School in Hulst, this is also a fun encounter at the fence, as the first party invitations have already been handed out. Jan and Veren Boseman bring their children Elaine (10), Owen (8), and Evie (4). “We had to get back in rhythm this morning,” Vereen laughs. But soon the routine was back in place: to the bakery, making bread, helping the children, packing three bags.

The family looks back at a beautiful summer. “We went to the south of France, our uncle lives there,” Owen says. Do they feel like the first day of school? “A little meaning!” Elaine laughs. Elaine is in seventh grade, Owen is in fifth grade, and Evie is in first grade. Elaine and Owen are getting a new teacher this year. “They look forward to it,” says their mother. Owen has something else to look forward to: He can now go to the superstructure court.

Especially want to see friends

“Wear it, make it a great year!” , a teacher from Prof. Dr. Konstam’s School in Goes encourages the students. Before they enter the school, they are allowed to parade through the schoolyard. To show who is actually which group. Among them are brothers Jules (7) and Sam (9) Trojan, who were really looking forward to going back to school. “Especially to see their friends again,” says Father Mark, who will pick them up and bring them to them today for the occasion. “They usually only come in the morning, but today is a special day.”

The Truijen family stayed in Austria for a week, enjoyed the Zeeland coast and went for a day here and there. “Those six weeks go by quickly,” Mark says. , But this period is also sufficient. Then you can start over. And football starts again outside of school. Everything starts over. It’s also good for us as parents to have a little routine again after six weeks.”

Learn more English again

Noor (Group 7) and Jetsky Marlowe (Group 3) from Public Primary School ‘t Mozaïek in Oost-Souburg are really looking forward to the first day of school. ,, Sometimes it is very boring during the holidays when it takes a long time. Now I see all my classmates again and there are also three new kids in the class. Beautiful,” Nour says.

Jetske-Marlou is also happy that she sees all her classmates again and can play with everyone again. And like Noor, who finds English particularly interesting, she also enjoys class. “It’s also fun learning new things.” Director Sonia Mosters is pleased to hear that. She is also happy to see everyone again on Monday. “Six weeks is a very long time,” she agrees with her students. “I am especially happy that everyone is healthy and happy at school again. Kids and teachers. We have super fun and a young team. Everyone is looking forward to it.”
