The Parents’ Association supports the family-life balance of our members by offering services like Childminding, Extracurricular 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.

In the talk “The Student Who Cannot Learn Like the Others: Discovering and Developing the Strengths of a Unique Mind”, we discussed the diversity and complexity of learning styles. This one hour talk was meant to challenge the common view that students challenged in learning have “disorders”, and provide evidence that a unique way of thinking that can be advantageous and successful in other aspects of their lives outside of the classroom. Our viewpoints on learning styles, and how we educate our learning diverse children about why they face challenges in the traditional classroom have an enormous impact on their self identity and confidence. We as parents have the responsibility to better understand our child’s learning challenges, and to advocate and work together with the school and other parents so that they can experience success.
We did not have enough time to get into more details about how to help such students in the classroom, and in addition to copies of the handouts that were available at the talk, I am also including references to other books and articles that provide many ideas of how to accommodate unique learning styles in the classroom. I am including references to the 3 most common challenges to unique learning in the classroom: ADHD(ADRS), Dyslexia(Legasthenie), and Autism(Autismus). However, if you would like any other references to other learning styles, please contact me at email@example.com.

As usual, school finishes at 11a.m. for all children on 6 July 2018, the last day of school before the summer break. Childminding is offering an early childcare directly after the end of the school day. Only parents whose children are duly registered in Childminding can make use of this service. This day will be charged separately by EuroKids and costs an additional 15 Euros, including lunch.
In order to plan the lunch in the school canteen accordingly, please register your children in advance at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. In this message indicate allergies or other specific dietary requirements. The deadline for applications is 22 June. Please note that we cannot offer Childminding for children who have not been specifically registered for this day. Childminding closes at 18.15h.
Also on 6 July the first school buses will leave at 11:10h rather than 13:10h.
