The Parents’ Association of the École Européenne Lille Métropole (APE-EELM) is an association in accordance with the 1901 law. The association is made up of parents from both sections and all levels, all volunteers, who wish to be involved alongside their children.

There are three things which make us different from other Parents’ Associations:

  • Our association brings together parents of pupils from the pre-school, primary, and secondary levels.
  • We represent, develop, and promote the cultural and linguistic diversity that characterizes our school.
  • We are involved in shaping the school’s project, in particular by directly managing before/afternoon care as well as extra-curricular activities in line with the spirit and statutes of European Schools.

You can read our bylaws here.

The Parents’ Association has three main missions:

There are several ways to become involved in the Parents’ Association:

Work groups are set up according to the PA’s needs and projects. These groups are not only tools for discussion between school parents but also strive for a spirit of cultural and linguistic openness. You can join one or more at any time.

There are 8 work groups: Library, Afterschool, Eco-mobility, Eco-school, Fundraising, Communication, Culture and Diversity, and Secondary.

Find out more about all the groups HERE along with contact details.

Objective: To create a community and actions that bring parents together around these themes as well as to raise funds primarily to finance our children’s trips or to support certain projects organized by the school and teachers.

Some actions and events organized by the groups throughout the year require additional help. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with the groups or with the Bureau if you’re able to help out!

The Administrative Council (C-APE) is composed of the members of the Bureau (President, Treasurer, Secretary) and other elected parents who collectively prepare and implement the decisions of the General Assembly and organize the defined projects and events.

The C-APE is made up of a maximum of 15 members, all parents of EELM students who are elected at the General Assembly which takes place each September.

How can you join the C-APE next year?   Simply respond to the call for applications, which is sent out by early September at the latest, and let us know your motivations for joining us.
