2009-Note from Mr Scott (Director of Primary, International school of the Hague):
To whom it may concern:
Jessica Spinks has been known to me for over a year now as a student in our Secondary School. In my time as Interim Head of Secondary School last year, I got to know Jessica as a friendly, thoughtful student. Jessica has also worked in our Primary School on many occasions, assisting teachers or looking after children when parents have been attending school functions. She has also worked on a regular basis, providing after school for children aged 4-11 and was extremely reliable ad highly thought of by parents and children.
Jessica has a natural flair and talent when caring for and nurturing young children. She has a genuine warmth that, when coupled with her common sense approach and sound decision making, make her ideally suited to this field. Alongside her empathy with young children, Jessica has a creative side, which she likes to use when working with them and she would like to explore this further, particularly through art, music and drama. She is also Bilingual (English and Dutch), with an understanding of French too, so this has been an added bonus when working with our international children.
In addition, Jessica is a valued member of the school 'Events Team' which helps to organise major activities in the school, such as conferences and social functions. She has performed this role efficiently and with a smile.
I can recommend Jessica as a warm, helpful and caring student.
