    If you could choose one thing you miss the most about high school, then at least 50% of you would say “apenkooien”, the best dutch high school gymnastics game. On March 11th, we offer you the opportunity to play this game once again; the sportcie will take you back in time! Between 17:00 and 19:00, we will play apenkooien in a sporthall in Vinkhuizen. We gather at Francken around 16:40 and then cycle towards the location. We know you all want to play this game, so save the date and sign up on the Franckendoor! This activity is free!
