lOOKING for any information on the JANSENIUS name. Have found them in Germany, then found a JANSENIUS SCHOOL in Hulst Netherlands. If anyone has any information on history of the name of the school would love to have it.
Thanks,
Janie Jansenius

Hi Janie,
The name of Jansenius school is pretty simple: it's the name of the first bisshop of Ghent; some 40 km from Hulst. He was pretty connected to Hulst and as it was a catholic school (think it was started in 1930's?) his name was given to it.

Kind regards,
Edwin
