Closing event Foundation Move - De Tamboerijn
May 17 2018

"That was the best day ever!" The children of group 7a of De Tamboerijn were yelling this the next morning when they came into their classroom. On 17 May the hard work of the children and the group Kraketters was rewarded.

In the gym hall there were several old-Dutch games and inflatables and the children could lose their energy during a game of dodgeball or football. In the cafeteria, everyone could get creative and the brains could be cracked during a game of checkers or chess. But everyone was also able to enjoy homemade sticks with fruit.

Before the summer a bench will be placed on the schoolyard, which will be decorated with drawings of the children. After that, the Move adventure for the group of De Tamboerijn is also finished and we can look back on a very successful charity activity.


Since April 1, Kraket has two Facebook pages: Kraket Social and Kraket Career.
