Staff’s Edition

Winner OBP staff outing

On Wednesday 16 June, OBP had a staff outing. All separate teams within OBP went on a treasure hunt, where they needed to solve puzzles to get the coordinates of the next spot in Maastricht they needed to go to.

On top of this, there was a photo challenge. We received a lot of pictures and after reviewing them all, we have chosen the winner of the nicest photo: Hans, Eric, Andrada and Lucie. Congratulations!

And a big thank you to everyone else who sent in pictures!

Leonie Cornips has been featured in an item from NOS Jeugdjournaal about dialect use in WhatsApp among children.

Leonie applauds the use of dialect in WhatsApp messages. Even though dialect is a spoken language and not necessarily a written one, she says that “it doesn’t matter how you write it, as long as you write it.”
