UWC Experience Day

June 14, 2024

The Knooppunt team, together with 10 volunteering students of UWC Maastricht, organized this day and welcomed 80 students and their teachers from local schools to our campus!

The aim of this day was for the guest students to experience what a “UWC education” is like, to get to know our “neighbours” (other, local peers in the greater region) and to interact and exchange with and inspire each other. The schools (both Dutch and Belgian) who participated were St. Jans College in Hoensbroek, the ISK – NOVO College in Maastricht, Campus De Helix in Maasmechelen and ISK – Emma College in Brunssum / Heerlen.

The Day

It started with introductory presentations of the different schools, followed by some icebreaker activities in the Atrium. Afterwards, there was a shared lunch in the Mensa. To complete the experience, the guest students joined some classes and workshops themed around peace and sustainability, facilitated by some of our teachers and students. This day ended with a reflection session and a “gratitude net” in the Atrium.
