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
Unclaimed items will be donated to charity after a maximum of 2 months.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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).
