Shakespeare Workshop MYP5 & TTO4

On Thursday, May 26th, you will be taking part in a Shakespeare in Performance Project workshop. This is an important part of your study of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and will lead to a “rehearsed reading” of the play before an audience of teachers and parents.
Your parents and siblings are welcome to come see the performance, as is anyone else you care to invite: it should be an enjoyable evening! Your increased understanding of Shakespeare is something you and your parents can be proud of; this rehearsed reading will be your chance to show off your learning.

4 mile run - October 2016

On Sunday the 9th of October 2016 it is the 30th edition of the 4-mile in Groningen. As usual the Maartens College and ISG will participate again this year. Last year it was a huge success with a few very fast runners. So if you want to beat your time from last year or simply run for fun, please sign yourself up for this years edition. There were only a few ISG students who participated last year, so we are hoping more will join this year! However, there are limited places available (45), so make sure you do it sooner rather than later.
