The Community Fund Committee
Mariana Ghitoi – Romanian section
Mum of Arsenie (P4RO) – I have been a member of the APEEE Board since January 2018 and a class representative for the last 4 years. Currently I am the Chairperson of the Community Fund Committee. I strongly believe that an effective partnership between parents and school is essential to ensure quality education and the well-being of our children.
Vanessa Vignati – Italian section
Mum of Riccardo (S6 IT) et Sara (S5 IT) (Gabriel S7 IT 2018-2019) – My children have been at the EEB2 for 4 years, and since 2013 we have reached the European school of Laeken. I have been a class representative every year from when my children started the school. I am the coordinator of the Italian stand for the Somerfesto since 2014 and I am on the Community Fund Committee since 2016.
Sarah Ironside – English section
Mum of Katie Jane (S6EN) and TomTom (S3EN) – My children have been at the school for ten years now. I believe all parents need to contribute in some way to our school community, in this way we can each bring our skills and abilities to support the school in educating our children. I was previously involved in the Somerfesto organisation and also in organising events for the Anglophone section. I have also served on the Board of the APEEE.
Gabriela Garcia Toledo – French section
Mum of two children in the French section, Chiara (S2) and Valentina (P3) – Since the first year at the school, I had always contribute with some time and lots of energy at different school activities/initiatives, as class representative, Somerfesto volunteer, Canteen Committee member and parents working groups member.
Ambar Hernandez Pacheco – French section
Mum of Johanna (S1Fr) and Ludovic (P4Fr) – I’ve been a class representative for the last 6 years, a section representative for the last 4 years and I’m currently VP IEPR (Information, Events and Public Relations) for the APEEE. I’m also involved with the British Scouts overseas and used to be an active volunteer for the Brussels Childbirth Trust. I take the saying “It Takes a Village to Raise a Child” at heart and truly believe that for our children that village can be found within the school community (teachers, parents and fellow students).
Dana Puia Morel – English section
I work at the European Commission, where I put in practice the innovative methods of Participatory Leadership (the Art of Hosting), which dwell on collective intelligence in a productive and creative way. I have been using my experience on how to design inclusive processes and thus bring people together, to build a true Community for our school. I believe that the Community Fund is an essential instrument for having a vibrant, diverse and engaged community in our school.
The Community Fund Committee meets once a month to discuss and analyse projects.
