Dear Vacationers,

Enjoying your holiday? Last week School of Life went on a four day SOLiday to the sunny south of the Netherlands. Due to the sun and fun new plans arose for the upcoming school year. We are very excited for our last few months as the board Reddingius 2016/2017.







Only 5 weeks left until 70 amazing people are going to run the dam tot dam loop for School of life!

Want to be part of this event but don’t feel like running? Support them on the side line the 17th of September.

Our champions will run 16 km from Amsterdam to Zaandam, so there are plenty of opportunities and spots to enjoy the sun, a nice beverage and in the meantime, motivate the runners. Together we finish to support education!

While you’re still enjoying your summer cocktails, School of Life already thinks about making the darker days of October brighter. Therefore, after the big success of last year, The Craft Beer festival is coming back to town. On the 8th of October, Edel will be the place to be in Amsterdam, at 15:00 ‘o clock the doors open for tasty craft beers, good food & lot’s of music. You don’t want to miss out on this, so Buy your ticket here

If you’re an early bird your ticket only costs 10,- ! So don’t wait too long with buying your ticket!






While the sun in Mexico is always shining and the temperatures are rising, the dream team is busy building the hotel. A team of 15 construction workers on site. They work six days a week from 8 am to 6 pm, no matter the weather circumstances. It might be freaking hot, it might be pouring down with rain, but they keep going. These guys come from (sometimes remote) communities in the state of Oaxaca, and even Chiapas.  Often they are from the same village, and might even be family (find members of the same family in this photo!)

But what’s a hotel with a heart without the right colours? Last week hotel Con Corazon visited a Mexican mosaic factory, where each and every piece is handmade, and it looks amazing. Because the tiles are made of cement they don’t need to be baked in an oven but they just dry in the open air. That makes the process relatively fast.

You can literally pick any design and colour you want. In fact, you can even have your own design made.

From the first week of September on, we are going to put the application online for a new board! Are you motivated to do someting for charity, work in a team, organise events and combine everything with school? You can send your motivation to from the 28th of August.

The functions you can apply for are the following and will differ from last year:

  • Chair(wo)man
  • PR Commissioner
  • Event Commissioner
  • Treasurer

Will you become our new board of 2017/2018?
