The Parents’ Association has two main tasks:
Two members of the APEEE Board participate in the School’s Board (Conseil d’Administration), which manages administrative and financial aspects of the school.
Our Association appoints parent members to two separate enlarged Education Councils for the Primary and the Secondary schools.
In these meetings the Association makes proposals, expresses its point of view on items discussed, working together with the directors and teachers of the school.
In consultation with other members of the school community, the association follows up numerous important matters at school, for example: the problem of overcrowding, the division of pupils between the European Schools in Brussels, construction and renovation works at the school, tobacco and drug abuse, etc.
