The Parents’ Association supports the family-life balance of our members by offering services like Childminding, Afternoon Activities, School Buses and Holiday Camps via our subsidiary EuroKids gGmbH. We represent the voice of all ESF Parents in a variety of committees and support the school on everything that happens outside the classroom and contributes to the school community.

We are pleased to inform you that with the 2018 New Year we will be introducing new offers into our afternoon programme. We will contact you with more news on offers such as our Magic Club and various movement based activities in due course. In the meantime, the Native Polish club will be starting its lessons on 7th November; applications can be made here.
The Native Polish Club (PP, P1, P2 & P3 Students)
Tuesdays 15.10-16.10 & Fridays 13.00-14.00
Ms Nowak will be offering polish lessons to enrich student’s vocabulary, increase grammatical awareness and accurancy and enhance reading and writing skills. Children will be gaining a better insight into the Polish culture by discovering much loved Polish children’s literature, games, music, songs, rhymes and much more. This group is targeted towards native Polish speakers.
Małgorzata Nowak, a qualified teacher of Polish language and speech therapist (master degree in Polish language at Marie Curie University in Lublin) will be leading the class. Children attending the class will be guaranteed places for the next school year. From the 2018-2019 school year, dependent on sufficient interest, the group will be split and the lesson for P2-P3 students will take place one hour after the PP&P1 students’ lesson.
Maximum Group Size: 10 students, Minimum Group Size: 5 students
The course takes place in the Modular Building from 07.11.17 and costs 15Eur per student per week.

As president of the Parents’ Association, are you the person responsible for school buses and after-school childcare?
Not any longer! Until last school year these services were indeed run by the Board of the Parents’ Association. Now we have a dedicated services company – EuroKids, with a General Manager in charge.
But the Parents’ Association still has an important role to play. In the past it was not as visible as the daily services. It consists in representing parents and working for the school community. Now we want to fully focus on this role. Unlike services, it cannot be delegated to staff or external providers.
Why is representing parents so important?
There is one aspect of the European Schools system that most people are not aware of. Can you imagine that in your country you would be invited as a parent to give your opinion to the Ministry of Education? In our system you are! Parents have a guaranteed place on all decision-making bodies. Both on school and system level. This is a unique opportunity to try to influence things. It is entirely up to us how we use it, and if we make use of it at all.
Of all the stakeholders, we parents have the most at stake: it is about our children!
