Nature school Kalvertje 4 in Oombergen took the top prize during the competition associated with the Week of the Forest from 9 to 16 October.
“There were more than 700 entries and we won the one and only fantastic grand prize for every toddler, namely a hand puppet from Elise de Speelse Eekhoorn”, says umbrella director Christ Meueleman. “The postman brought a large package to our school. Jelle was allowed to open the package. The children were so happy! “Wow, Elise, the squirrel” came spontaneously. Elise has already had many adventures in our forest today. Soon Elise, the squirrel can go home with the toddlers to experience even more adventures. We were very happy and proud to have won the competition. Our thanks also go to the Agency for Nature and Forests and BOS+ for the educational material they make for us every year. Every year it’s “looking forward to…” and “counting down to…” We have already noted 8 – 15 October 2023 in our agenda to be able to experience fun adventures again.”
