Fires at the school


Message from the APEEE Board 

The APEEE has learned about the arson incident which took place for the second consecutive day in the Secondary school’s toilets. The APEEE gives its full support to the direction of EEB IV and the Brussels police for identifying the culprit. The APEEE invites parents and pupils to communicate to the school direction any element of fact which could help to this effect. It is incumbent upon the whole school community – parents, teachers, school direction and other staff members – to be vigilant and increase awareness among pupils on the risks of such acts which are not merely acts of mischief but are in fact criminal acts which present a very serious potential danger with dramatic consequences everyone wants to avoid.


On Wednesday, March 20, a fire broke out again in Building A.

The fire brigade has been called to check that everything is under control.

We will keep you informed of the situation if it changes during the day.

Thank you for your understanding.


A garbage caught fire today, March 19, 2019, in the early afternoon, in Building A.

The alarms went off immediately and all the children were evacuated.

The fire was brought under control by the school workers and, as required by the fire procedure, the fire brigade arrived on the school site. They are currently checking that everything is under control and ventilating the building.

There were no injuries and classes in all other buildings resumed normally.
