It is important to use the structured communication indicated.

7) When will I know if my child has a place in the canteen?

When you make a canteen order on our online registration website, it remains in process while our service analyses your registration request.

The status “Accepted” confirms your registration: your child has a place in the canteen and can now go there and eat.

You will then receive a payment request and the status of your order will change to “Awaiting Payment”.

Your child can go to the canteen as soon as the status of your canteen order has been changed to “Accepted”.

When you place an order with our canteen service, several registration statuses are possible, depending on the situation.

The meaning of the different statuses can be found in our Glossary >

10) Is it possible to cancel/modify my canteen subscription?

It is possible to cancel or modify your canteen subscription before the end of each quarter, and before the beginning of the next one (specific dates to be consulted in our rules). You will not be charged for the following term.

However, it is not possible to cancel your subscription during a term, the total amount of the term will remain due.

Subscriptions will be renewed by tacit agreement at the end of each quarter for the following quarter on the basis of the same choice of days.

Consult the Canteen Rules > 

11) Will I be reimbursed if my child no longer uses the canteen?

In cases where the student has missed at least two consecutive weeks due to illness, the APEEE will reimburse the charges for meals not taken dating from one week after having received notification and on provision of a medical certificate in French or English from a Doctor practicing in the Kingdom of Belgium.

Cancelling the subscription is also possible when the pupil is transferred to another school: a copy of the school transfer must then be sent to the APEEE. A notice period of 2 weeks will then apply.

12) What is the composition of the canteen menu?

The menu is developed with the advice of a dietician.

The canteen tries to serve meals which are likely to please a majority of children from different traditions and which respect the dietary balance, while taking into account the organisational constraints and discipline in the restaurant, as well as the need to ensure the comfort and safety of the pupils.

The menu of the month is published on the APEEE website, with the allergens.

The menu of the month is published on the APEEE website on this page: Menu >

For each day, the allergens are indicated.

14) My child registered at the canteen has a school activity/course at lunchtime, how can he/she eat his/her meal?

At the request of the school, the canteen will replace the normal meal with a picnic for pupils who are registered in the canteen and who are on school outings or have lessons at mealtime.

15) Can I come and eat in the canteen as a parent?

Parents whose children are regularly enrolled in the canteen and are in order of payment are kindly invited to have one meal, free of charge, per term and per family. They need to notify the Canteen office (canteen@bru4.eu) at least two working days before the requested date. Please wait for confirmation from the Canteen Manager.

16) Can I suggest an idea for a meal?

On national holidays of EU countries we try to offer a special menu. We are always looking for new ideas!

If you have any suggestions, please feel free to let us know (canteen@bru4.eu).

17) What is the use of the "APEEE BRU IV" application and how does it work?

Our APEEE BRU IV application is linked to your child’s token issued by the school to all students.

This token, which acts as a means of payment, is linked to a personal account and must be activated by our system before using our services. To do so, please send us an email (canteen@bru4.eu) with your child’s name, first name, photo and class. Alternatively, your child can come directly to our offices (D building) and we will activate his/her token manually.

Our application allows P4 and P5 and all secondary students to pay for the products of their choice in the different cafeterias: the cafeteria in the R building (secondary only), the Snack Shack and the Cargo Bike and the pre-order.

It also allows secondary and P4 and P5 students to eat at the canteen: the price of a meal is then credited to your child’s account.

18) How do I get my app credentials?

Download the app from your smartphone on Google Play (Android) or Apple Store (iOS).

To get your username and password, please send us an email (canteen@bru4.eu) with “APEEE BRU IV – App – Login” in the email subject and ask for your password for the application.

19) How do I top up my child's account?

You can top up your child’s account directly via the app by choosing the amount of your choice (between €10, €20, €50 and €100) and the payment method you prefer.

Cash top-ups are no longer accepted.

20) What should I do if my child loses his/her token?

Notify us as soon as possible (canteen@bru4.eu) so that we can deactivate it.

Also inform the school secretariat of the cycle concerned so that the IT department can deactivate the lost token. Ask them at the same time to issue a new card and go to Canteen Manager’s office to activate this card.

You can ask us for a temporary token so that your child can continue to eat in the canteen or cafeterias. A deposit of €5 will be taken from the account.

21) What are the products on offer in the cafeterias?

You can find all our prices and products available in our cafeterias on our website: Cafeterias >
