In preparation to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of The British School of Amsterdam we have launched the Alumni Association of The British School of Amsterdam, normally referred to as just the Alumni. The Alumni Association exists to promote communication between the School and our globally dispersed alumni, and more importantly among the alumni themselves as well as developing relationships with those that have an interest in the School's activities.What would YOU like to have in the Alumni Association?
We would love to hear what YOU would like from the Alumni Association. We will be emailing you next week an online questionnaire where we can gather everyone’s ideas.Ideas we already have include:
- An online web directory of who is where, which university they went to, what they are doing and their contact details.
- An annual event that would bring several years together, for example, for 2019 we could invite everyone to Amsterdam from Class of 2016 to Class of 2018.
- Alumni Association Ambassadors who would help co-ordinate social events in different parts of the world.
- Sharing news about Alumni in a termly newsletter – also sharing news about what is happening at the school.
As part of the 40-year celebration we are organising a Gala Dinner.This will be held on the evening of Saturday 22 June 2019 in the Beurs van Berlage, Amsterdam (the old stock exchange building). As well as alumni, past and current staff and parents will be attending and it should be a spectacular event to commemorate the success of the last 40 years. Tickets will be discounted for Alumni who are 27 years and under.Alumni Career Advice and University Guidance
We are keen to use our alumni to able to offer careers and university advice. For those alumni who are still living in the Netherlands we would be delighted if you would consider coming to give university advice to some of our older pupils.Want to get involved?
To make a successful alumni association it must be led by a motivated group of people. If you would be interested in being part of the Alumni Committee then please let us know – it doesn’t matter where in the world you are as we can always conduct our meetings via Skype. Our Alumni Association email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.How to register your interest
