A couple days ago, the new plans for the renovation of Hotelschool The Hague were released. In these plans a vital part of the campus The Hague seems to be missing.
For almost 20 years, Kinderbar has been part of The Hague campus. It is a place where friends and memories are made. It is the place where both students and educators are invited to share a drink outside classes and meetings.
Kinderbar provides the students of HTH with the opportunity to help out behind the scenes, get to know their fellow students and educators, even show of our school to friends from other educations.
For almost 20 years, Senti Questo has organized Kinderbar with various themes, collaborations with the other associations and teachers. Various events, such as; International Food Festival with Student Council, 2 BARS 1 NIGHT with La Confrérie and Kinderbar with the Gentlemen’s Club, were held in Kinderbar or with the support of Kinderbar. Kinderbar connects all students and associations with each other.
Furthermore, Kinderbar is the only location in Hotelschool were the students can connect with their educators in an informal way. It encourages both students and educators gain a more rewarding professional relationship that might continue after graduation. It changes the relationship from just student and teacher to young professional and mentor.
Not only that, Kinderbar encourages HTHs students to invite their friends from other places and educations to come and share a drink. It is a way for students to show off Hotelschool and share their experiences with their friends. Many of these friends state that Kinderbar is an unique location and are surprised that both students and educators are able to join in. They often wish there was a place like this at their schools.
As Hotelschool The Hague is a hospitality education, it promotes itself as the Heart of Hospitality. It is strange to notice that at the Heart of Hospitality, there is (apparently) no place to show off our heart for hospitality, the attitude and the skills we are educated on in an informal and non-educational setting.
We believe Kinderbar is unique and should stay part of the Hotelschool The Hague campus.
Therefore we ask you to sign this petition and show your support.
