Invitation to opening synthetic turf field OBS Archipel


Dear residents of the Archipel,

I would like to inform you about a number of developments that will soon take place at the Archipel School.

We have been working for some time to arrange a safe surface for the football field. During the May holiday we start with the construction of an artificial grass field. An artificial grass field is safer but also more attractive for young people. We want to be able to close the field but also keep it neighborhood -friendly. We know that the field is used a lot after school. We have chosen to place a fence, just like with the green playground (the passage between Atjehstraat and Sumatrastraat remains open). This way we can close the field after a certain time. A local resident designated by us will manage the key. He/she will ensure that the football field will be opened and closed during the weekend. The neighborhood and youth day tent will also manage a key and they will regularly patrol. After the May holiday, Monday 9 May from 8.30 am to 9.30 am, the opening of the artificial grass pitch will take place in the presence of an alderman, a director of Stichting de Haagse Schools, parents/guardians and students. I would like to invite you to participate in the opening. We appreciate your presence.

I also want to tell you that on 24 June we will celebrate the summer party (in the afternoon) and on 1 July the farewell party of group 8 (in the evening) in the schoolyard. We will use the music installation at both events. We hope for your understanding for possible noise nuisance. Hopefully I will see you on the schoolyard on 9 May. I.v.m. The May holiday is the school closed from 23-4-2022 to 8-5-2022.

Yours sincerely,
Şirvan Kopar Director OBS Archipel
