Early morning in the monastery

DISDH grade 7 students enjoyed a special history lesson in the early
morning hours in the "Broeders van Sint Jan" Monastery situated in the
centre of The Hague. They met with Brother Cornelius Maria who told them
stories about life in a monastery. He made quite the impression on the
students and patiently answered the many questions asked. The students
even got to take a quick look into the chapel and dining hall. What a
perfect way to round out the subject of medieval society and the role of
monasteries as centres of culture and education which the students had
been learning about in their lessons at school.
