The Parents’ Association supports the family-life balance of our members by offering services like Childminding, Afternoon Activities, Transport and Holiday Camps. 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 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 two more requests from a boy and a girl from the Parma European school. 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.

As usual, school finishes at 11am for all children on the last day of school, the 7 July 2017, before the summer break. This is why Childminding offers an early childcare right after the end of school. Only parents whose children are duly registered in Childminding can make use of this service. This day will be charged extra and will cost 15 Euros including lunch.
In order to plan the lunch in the school canteen accordingly, you have to register your children in advance using the following email address: email@example.com. Please also indicate allergies or other specific diets.
The deadline is 26 June 2017. Please note that we cannot take care of children who have not been registered specifically for that day.
Childminding closes at 6.15pm.

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…
