Dear Members of the 'Nederlandse Vereniging',
This year Sinterklaas will visit again the Residence of our Consul General on the Peak. We would like to give Sinterklaas a warm welcome at 2pm at the parking area in front of the Residence. Please be on time to sing along with the Sinterklaas songs.
After the warm welcome, we will celebrate our traditional Sinterklaas party in the garden, with a meet and greet with Sinterklaas and his 'Pieten', games, a craft table, face painting, a balloon clown, a bouncy castle and of course you can enjoy the 'pepernoten' and the typical Dutch snacks. The event finishes at 4pm.
Some Important Notes:
NB1: In contrast to previous year (although in line with the old tradition of the NV), we have decided, for practical reasons, that instead of the NV buying presents for the children, we ask you as parents to buy the gifts for your own children. Please, in consideration to the other children, do not spend more than HKD 100 on the present as we will distribute them during the Sinterklaas party. Please wrap your present and put your child's name clearly written on it. You can drop off your present BEFORE 25th of November at 20B Fortis Tower, 77 Gloucester Road, Wan Chai. If you do not have any Sinterklaas wrapping paper yourself, we can provide that to you at the above-mentioned office address as well (but only of course after the wrapping paper has come in).
NB2: Please purchase one ticket of HKD 50 per child. Children BELOW 3 are FOR FREE. In addition, please purchase one ticket of HKD 150 per adult. Thus if you are a family of 2 parents and 2 children (both being 3 years of age or older), you will need to purchase 2 tickets of HKD 50 each and 2 tickets of HKD 150 each, in total HKD 400.
NB3: When completing the application form for your child/children, please state not only your (i) Child's/Children's Name and (ii) his/her/their date of birth(s), but ALSO (iii) mention a few funny lines/stories about your Child/Children under the 'Optional' Field (it says 'optional' because of technical reasons). This would be 'information' Sinterklaas can use when he speaks to the children.
NB4: Please do NOT park in front of the Residence of the Consul General and please do NOT drive your car or taxi into the drive lane of the Consul General as we need the space for Sinterklaas, the 'Pieten' and obviously the children.
NB5: This event is only for members!!
We hope you will enjoy the EVENT
