At the beginning of July we received the outcome of the Dutch A Literature exam which 39 IBID students sat in May 2016. The results were tremendous – a pass rate of 100% with an average mark of over IB 5.6 which is again above the worldwide average. The students have really surpassed themselves! The table below lists the results. The numbers in black indicate how many students achieved the corresponding final mark.
As a young girl I had big plans for my grown-up life: I would read books, teach and explore the world, and I was looking forward to it!
(Josephine Franken, IBID director at 7 years old)
When I was older, therefore, I attended Leiden University to study Dutch Language and Literature. Dutch Language because language is one of the most important means of communication. Even reading, thinking, dreaming, is all done through language. The Dutch language may not be particularly appealing, nor is it a language of global significance, but when you have grown up with it, as I did, it is ‘home’. Dutch Literature because literature gives pause to reflect on ideas and feelings about yourself and the world around you. Dutch literature is a cultural heritage and invites you to look beyond the borders and dive into world literature.
When I first became acquainted with the International Baccalaureate in 1997, all my ideas about education fell into place. I became an all-round IB Dutch teacher, tutored IB Dutch students abroad and was a supervisor at an international school for what is now the SSST programme.
In 2000 I founded IBID, the first organisation in the world to provide IB Dutch self-taught programmes only. The perspective from which we started then is still the guiding principle today: IBID wants to be a safe haven and an inspiring school fostering Dutch-speaking IB students who think of themselves as world citizens and who are proud to form a part of the Dutch culture.
