What can you expect today?
The court in Belgium rules in the case of a student who died five years ago during an out of control hazing. Eighteen members of a dispute hear whether they are guilty of the death of the then 20-year-old Sanda Dia. The court in Amsterdam will rule at 11 a.m. in the case of 23-year-old Samir El Y., who is suspected of shooting of 24-year-old Bas van Wijk on a beach near Nieuwe Meer in August 2020. He was previously sentenced to nine years in prison and TBS. The RTL 4 program Koffietijd stops thirteen years after the restart. The morning talk show is taken off the tube due to disappointing viewing figures. The last broadcast can be seen from 10 a.m. Today is also the last broadcast of the Netherlands in Movement with Olga Commandeur. She was featured in the program for almost a quarter of a century. The Pan Asian Awards will be presented for the first time at event location Capital C in Amsterdam. Talented Asian Dutch people who work in the cultural, commercial and public sector are also honored. Ajax will hold an extraordinary meeting of shareholders in the Johan Cruijff Arena from 3.30 pm.

What did you miss?
One in six schools in the Netherlands has signed up for free meals or other food support for students. This concerns a total of 1302 schools in both primary and secondary education.
The project was set up by the Youth Education Fund and the Red Cross, because not all students go to class with a full stomach. Through the project, pupils receive a meal at school or a shopping card with which parents or carers can buy breakfast for their child. The Ministry of Education has made 100 million euros available this year for food support for about 300,000 students.
A school is eligible for the free meals if at least 30 percent of the students come from low-income families. Most participating schools are located in South Holland and North Holland.
