General News & Info

Dear Parents, Dear families,

The school year 2016-2017 has come to an end. We hope everything went as good as possible for your children and yourself.


The end of this year is particularly noteworthy as our school congratulated its first bacheliers at the Baccalauréat Ceremony.

It should be noted that the success rate has been exceptional.

We would like to thank parents from our school who participated in the Baccalauréat’s proper functioning; Bart Neerscholten, Darija Colja, Ines Hartwig, Joachim Tasso-Vilallonga, Kirsten Maher, Sara Panelli.

Our successful students will henceforth be Ambassadors of a Europe united in diversity.

On behalf of all the parents, we warmly congratulate them.

Extraordinary general meeting

The extraordinary general meeting, announced at the GA of December 8th, has been convened on June 26th in order to vote the revision of our association’s statutes.

Unfortunately there was no quorum of class representatives. The revision of statutes could thus not be voted.

In order to identify the reasons why some parents do not seem concerned about the APEEE works, a reflection with the section representatives has been opened up during the meeting regarding the parent’s role in school life and the representative system.

In any case, we would like to thank the class representatives who mobilized and/or came (or granted proxy) the 26th of June, as well as people who provided us their comments on the draft text.

We will come back to you at the start of the new school year with proposals and a consolidated case.

Monitoring group of the European Schools

On 27 June 2017, Mr Marchegiano, the Secretary-General of the European Schools, convened an extraordinary meeting of the monitoring group comprised of schools directors, APEEE presidents, teachers representatives, European Commission representatives, Personnel Committee representatives as well as the Belgian “Régie des bâtiments”.

The subject of long term strategies regarding the management of the growing number of students has been discussed at the meeting on the basis of two simulations.

School start

As in previous years, a coffee break will take place the first day of the new school year under the canteen building. 

We would also like to remind you that the book sales will take place the 11 and 12 September at the school in order for you to make your last year’s school books available and to buy those necessary for the school year 2017-2018.

(See the message sent by your class representatives a few days ago).

The Parents Association (APEEE) will continue to provide the services your children and yourself need thanks to your feedback and constructive remarks. Do not hesitate to communicate with the Executive board members; you will find the chart here

On behalf of the Parents Association of the European school, I wish each and every one of you a wonderful summer holiday.

Présidente de l’APEEE de Bruxelles IV-Laeken

Dear Parents

Somerfesto being the only whole school event is the most important occasion of our school calendar - at least until we celebrate our first BAC later this year! Thank you all for joining in the fun.

APEEE, your parents association, is delighted to have begun the integration of Somerfesto into our structures and so offer it support. We would like to thank all of the parents committees who have given our children such an enjoyable event annually since Somerfesto began in 2009 on the Berkendael site.

We especially thank this year's Somerfesto team of committed parents who with the change to a May date and the later than usual announcement of the date, had three months less in which to organise this year's Somerfesto. You are all Angels!

Thanks must also go to the various school and APEEE teams who supported the organising committee: teachers, administration, logistics, security and canteen. The Somerfesto organising committee and APEEE consider all of these to be Angels throughout the year and are hugely appreciative of all they do for our children.

We look forward to further integrating Somerfesto into APEEE and trust that we can count on your support and understanding.

In the meantime enjoy the holidays!

Catherine DAGUET-BABICH, President of the APEEE BXL 4
