A total of 5,854 primary schools and more than 1.2 million children in the Netherlands and the Caribbean Netherlands will participate in the King’s Games on Friday 24 April 2015. The schools will receive their King’s Games’ gift parcels between 8 and 20 April. The gift parcel contains a flag, a skipping rope, elastic bands, cones and a special reaction ball. These are all items with which the school can put its own slant on the King’s Games and with which the children can play at other times of the year too.
Dutch schools abroad
PostNL is not only ensuring that schools in the Netherlands and the Caribbean Netherlands can participate in the King’s Games; 10,000 pupils at Dutch schools abroad and Dutch departments of European schools can also participate. Cooperation with Stichting Nederlands Onderwijs in het Buitenland [the Foundation for Dutch Education Worldwide] and the King’s Games has made this possible.
