A group of 14 TASIS students is representing our school at The Hague International Model United Nations (THIMUN) event. This five-day conference for secondary school students simulates the United Nations. The event takes place at the end of January each year in the World Forum Convention Center in The Hague. This amazing experience enables students to interact with colleagues from more than 100 countries in a real political scenario, and talk about the same global issues that are on the agenda of the world leaders.

Four of our Upper School students enjoyed tea time with Mr. Nixon and Mr. Tragas this week. This is a great way to celebrate success outside of the classroom. Lily loves theater, but also sings and dances. She owns her own Shakespeare company and has participated in numerous plays on campus and in other theaters. Ben has been a member of the Great Britain tennis team since he was 11. He is currently the highest ranked GB boy for his age internationally. Sean was a National Merit Scholarship semi-finalist and he is a TASIS England cross-country star. We recently saw him playing bass at a school concert. And Phil made history becoming the youngest ever top 10 finishers in the world famous Le Mans 24 Hour Race this year. One of the biggest compliments a school can receive from its students was summarized in the words of Phil who said, "The reason my family and I chose TASIS England was for their support in my passion for racing." Congratulations to all of you!
