Sommerfest ESF 2017
We have earned the fabulous weather! (Photos are on the website for logged-in members)
After many years of alternating weather and the 2016 thunderstorm, we had a stable weather forecast this time, so we were able to set up everything outside on Friday for the first time in years. Moving the heavy tables and benches in the secondary canteen for the food stands required 2 hours of full muskel use and good planning together with 4 pupils from the S6 with the caretakers - thanks a lot for the help.
Anna Skrzypczynska, Tanja Kuhn Werner and Dorothee Sevet helped us on Friday with the small but important preparations such as signposting, garbage bags, laying our programs pavilion inscription and much more. Thanks to you too!
Saturday morning there was still a lot to prepare. At this point, we would like to thank the few who have responded to our call for help: Michael and Leonard Hofmann (father and son), Jens Milde, Fabrice Quack (all fathers), Wendy Robertet with daughter, Renata Baum (sports instructor) and Todor Kisov, a father whose children will be at our school only from September 2017, has asked if he can help.
Organizers and their helpers from 18 (!) Nations have again agreed to prepare food stands. The decorations and the dishes are more varied and beautiful every year! Many thanks to all involved - we are dependent on your commitment to the success of the party. Unfortunately, apart from the S4 Charity Club and the S6 BAC Committee, only the S2 DEA Class has registered with its very professional popcorn stand. No other classes were there - we thought that was a pity!

The Annual General Meeting last November mandated the Board to establish a limited liability company that will take over the PA’s core services: childminding, holiday camps, afternoon activities and transport. We are happy to inform you that the long process has come to an end. On 24 May we signed the notarial deed establishing the company, which will operate under the name of EuroKids.

On Wednesday 29th of March, the UK invoked article 50 of the EU Treaty, formally signalling its intention to leave the EU. What does this mean for the European Schools? How does it affect you? What can we do, as parents?
To start with, exit of the UK from the schools is not automatic: the Schools Convention is separate from the EU Treaty. It could be to everyone’s advantage if the UK decides not to leave the schools as well as the EU. Nonetheless, it is not yet clear whether this is legally possible. If the UK does decide to leave, the terms of exit are a mere full school year from notification of intention to withdraw from the Convention. Therefore, can we really be sure that the UK will still be in the Convention on 1 September 2018, the start of the school year in which the UK is due to leave the EU? Given all this uncertainty, INTERPARENTS is continuing to urge that risk assessment and contingency planning be done now, pending the beginning of talks. Consider the following ramifications…

In March and April we have received requests from two students from the Brussels II school - one girl and one boy - who are looking for host families for their stay in Frankfurt September - December 2017. The boy will attend S5FR, the girl will attend S5IT. In May we have received three more requests from a boy and two girls from the Parma European school who will all attend S5IT. Please have a look at their profiles here - accessible to logged-in members only - and consider allowing them into your families to profit from this unique opportunity.
If you are not a member of the Parents' Association, but a parent of an ESF student, you can contact email@example.com and request the students' motivation letters.
