On Monday June 12 HRH Princess Laurentien of The Netherlands visited Copenhagen International School. The Princess, who is a strong advocate for sustainability and who works to promote literacy in Holland and worldwide, met a group of 1st grade students and read aloud to them from her books about Mr. Finney which explore the topics of deforestation, global warming and sustainable living.
The Princess was impressed with our students and the many relevant questions and sensible answers they provided. And we were all thrilled to meet such a dedicated and knowledgeable "champion of a just and sustainable world."
Among the students were a number of Dutch children (with their parents and staff) who were thrilled to receive our royal guest and to get a chance to meet the Princess in person.
