Social Program:

  • Get together on Sunday for MINO ESRs and ERs.
  • Welcome Reception on Tuesday (all participants of training school).
  • Excursion on Friday (all participants of training school):

    9:00-16:00. 
     We will have a hike in the beautiful countryside near the village of Oisterwijk, and will visit the nearby monastery where the famous La Trappe beer is still brewed by the monks. Lunch (and beer tasting for those interested!) will be included. Please send an email to Lenie Laurijssen (L.M.Laurijssen@uvt.nl) if you will *not* participate in the excursion. The hike will not be demanding, but bring some comfortable shoes, and a raincoat/umbrella in case of rain. The bus will depart at 09:00 from in front of the Faculty Club. You may find details (including a map) on the hiking route at this (Dutch) site.  More info on the monastery and brewery available at this site.

 

The school ends on Friday, around 4pm.
