Eureka! is open on Tuesdays and Fridas from 8:30 to 14:30.

Eureka! is an initiative coordinated by a few volunteer parents who take care of collecting, returning, and storing items lost by students.

We have put boxes at different places in the school (entrances to the primary and secondary buildings, canteen, gymnasium…) to collect lost things during the week. Items lost by pupils are put there by the school staff and collected by the Eureka team every Friday morning.

As the boxes are only emptied on Fridays, you can also ask your children to go and look for lost items during the week.

IN NURSERY AND PRIMARY

  • Named items will always be brought to class to their owner on Friday morning.
  • Unnamed items will be stored in the Eureka room. Pupils can come to Eureka on Fridays between 8:30am and 12:30pm.

IN SECONDARY

  • Items will be stored in the room and we will send an email to the parents via the class representative when we have found items with names on it.
  • Children will be able to pick up their belongings on Fridays between 8:30am and 12:30pm.

Unclaimed items will be donated to charity after a maximum of 2 months.

LABELLING

The Eureka! Team strongly encourages you to label your clothes, your bags, your sports equipment, your bottles, your lunch boxes… In fact, anything that can be labelled should be. It may seem tedious, or even futile, but when a labelled object ends up in the Eureka! room, it doesn’t stay there for long. The Eureka! room will make sure that all tagged objects that end up in the Eureka! room are quickly returned to their owners.

VOLUNTEERS

Eureka is a service run entirely by a few parent volunteers who collect, return and store items lost by pupils. If you have some spare time and enjoy doing the work of Sisyphus in a fun environment, contact the Eureka! team at the following address eureka@bru4.eu

The Eureka! Team regularly publishes videos of the found items. The school sens the Eureka! newsletter (including the links to the videos) to all parentS. If you seen an item that belongs to you, send an email specifying the item, the name and class of your child.

The Eureka room is in the basement of the J building (primary).
