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!

The 2017 General Assembly of the ESF Parents' Association will take place on 28 November 2017 at 19:30 (registration from 19:00) in the Aula of the ESF. Members will be invited via E-Mail at least 2 weeks before the event, but you may want to mark this date in your calendars.
The General Assembly is open to members only. Members can authorize a person to come and vote in their place. But you still have time to become a member!

I would like to use this opportunity to welcome you all into the new school year. I am both excited and privileged to be part of the EuroKids Team serving the needs of parents and children at ESF. I am looking forward to a successful year and would warmly receive any feedback you may have on our services.
Felix Walderdorff and Klaudia Mager have been working hard with myself to ensure a smooth transition of services from the Parents Association to EuroKids.
Contact details and answers to questions related to the transition of services previously run by the PA and now run by EuroKids can be found on our EuroKids page. Should you have further questions with regards to EuroKids which are not answered there please do not hesitate to contact me.
General Manager, EuroKids
