The Booklists for Secondary School Year 2017/18 have been put online by the school. This leaves parents time over the summer holidays to sort through the books they have, contact parents from higher classes for used books, or purchase the books required, as well as the TI N-Spire calculator required for S4 and up.
If you have books you no longer need but they are still on the list, you might consider offering them via our "Book Exchange" Feature on this webpage.
Parents whose membership with the Parents' Association is ending by the end of the school year and who want to sell their books, should enter the books before 31 July.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org and request the students' motivation letters.

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…
