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

As usual, school finishes at 11a.m. for all children on 21st December 2017, the last day of school before the winter 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 and cost 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 December 7th, 2017. Please note that we cannot offer Childminding for children who have not been specifically registered for this day.
Childminding closes at 6.15p.m.

Dear Helpers*, Parents, Pupils,
Thanks so much for your help with the Halloween party! Thank you for providing cakes and finger food and for thinking of children with allergies so that they too could savour the goodies. Our gratitude goes also to all helpers* present at the party, among all: Simone Cruciani (P1&P4-IT), Michele Bellomo (P5-IT) and Emese Farkas(P2-DE). It’s because of enthusiastic people like you that ESF PA can organise fun events for our kids. It was so much fun seeing them celebrate, try to elucidate the magic tricks, freeze during the photo shooting, follow the dance steps and thoroughly enjoy the party.

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!
