Pedagogical Affairs – February update


pedgroupsIt’s a new year and a fresh impulse for parent involvement…

The APEEE Board has appointed Kristin Dijkstra (VP Ped), Karina Suleimanova (Vp Ped adjoint – N/P) and Martina Sindelar to work on Pedagogical Affairs, complemented by our school’s Interparents representatives Sarah Conyers Barber and Horst Nickels.

Parents who attended the last General Assembly on December 10, 2014 will be aware that the Assembly approved a motion to create Section Representatives at EEB4. The Assembly also recognized that while some parent working groups are functioning well, others need strengthening or re-activation.

The working groups will handle subjects such as: Behaviour and Anti-Bullying (N/P and S), Learning Support and SEN (N/P and S), Self-Esteem and Drug Prevention (SELFES, Secondary), Health & Security (N/P, S).

Parents with a particular interest or expertise are warmly encouraged to get involved. Anyone who wishes to become or remain a member of the Working Groups is requested to send an email to
