Mot de Catherine Daguet-Babich, Présidente de l’APEEE, message de fin d’année scolaire 2015-2016

Chers Parents,

Ce fut une année complexe pour vous et notre APEEE. Toutefois, nous avons progressé sur des projets importants, visant à améliorer la sécurité, l'environnement scolaire et les services offerts à vos enfants.

Pour la deuxième année consécutive, le Conseil d’Administration m’a renouvelé sa confiance. Nous souhaitons pouvoir mener à bien un projet de réorganisation de l’Association. L’année prochaine, l’école sera à pleine capacité et les ressources humaines des employés de l’APEEE doivent être mises en adéquation avec les services à fournir. 

Pour l’année 2015-2016, le plus gros défi a été de présenter le dossier création de cafétéria lors de l’Assemblée Générale de février 2016. Nous pouvons raisonnablement annoncer que la cafétéria ouvrira ses portes en novembre 2016. Il est probable qu’elle ne fonctionnera pas à plein régime dès son ouverture, mais tout se mettra progressivement en place.

Il faut relever également que les représentations de sections commencent à porter leurs fruits. Les parents se coordonnent et l’information circule mieux. Les travaux de l’APEEE deviennent plus visibles et j’espère que l’action du Conseil d’Administration, bénévole il faut le rappeler, est appréciée à sa juste valeur par les familles.

Nous sommes fiers d’annoncer qu’une réunion conjointe des 4 APEEE de Bruxelles s’est tenue le 12 mai 2016. Il est important de souligner que c’est la première fois que les Conseils d’Administration des 4 APEEE se réunissaient. L’échange d’informations et de bonnes pratiques nous permettra de vousoffrir encore de meilleurs services.

Enfin, un cycle de conférences commun aux 4 écoles est en projet. La première conférence conjointe se déroulera le 19 septembre 2016 à 18H30 au Bâtiment Charlemagne - 170, rue de la Loi 1040 Bruxelles sur le thème "European BAC - Recognition, State of Play and Future Prospects" dont vous trouverez l’agenda en pièce jointe.

Pour la bonne gestion logistique de la conférence, l’enregistrement est obligatoire. Merci de cliquer sur le lien Registration. Nous vous y attendons nombreux !

L'APEEE est là pour vous aider, donc n’hésitez pas à consulter notre site et à nous contacter si vous avez des questions.

Au nom du Conseil d’Administration, je vous souhaite un bel été !

Catherine Daguet-Babich

In April, the Digital Leadership Institute carried out it’s first-ever Digital Muse Girl Tech Fest, a day-long, volunteer-run event promoting entrepreneurship, science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (“ESTEAM”) to 11-14 year old girls from the greater Brussels area, in order to encourage their participation in ESTEAM studies and careers. This fantastic event was hosted by our school! As a result of the stunning success of this event, some of the participants were invited to attend a Women & Tech event with google which took place on May 3. We are delighted to bring you an exclusive report written by one of the participants, Giuliana Locchi!

Saturday 28 May saw the third edition of the Performing Arts Day when children enrolled in musical and artistic activites have the oportunity to showcase their skills. This year, as well as recitals on the paino, violin and guitar, we were joined by singers and the school orchestra. The kids who participate in the art workshops put on a fantastic exhibition of their work. Participants were able to relax outside in the sunshine in between performances and enjoy the refreshments organised by the Community Fund Committtee who were fundraising to sustain the Community Fund. This also provided an excellent occasion for parents to see the trees which have been planted along the G Building as part of a European Hours project which the COmmunity Fund helped make possible.
