Director’s Welcome

Director’s Welcome

Dear Parents, dear students

I would like to welcome you to the new school year. I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing holiday and were able to recharge your batteries for the new school year.

As you have surely noticed, our homepage has got a facelift. Our aim was to make the layout more attractive and the navigation more user-friendly. During a transition period, not all sections will be filled as usual, but we are working on a gradual completion and translations, so that at the end the entire homepage will be available in the three working languages English, German and French.

The Whole School Inspection carried out by external evaluators in 2018 recommended a cyclical self-evaluation with the participation of the entire school community. We would therefore like to conduct an online survey of the school community on various topics this autumn. You will receive more detailed information in the coming weeks. We count on your active participation in this survey.

As every year, we will organise a large number of events. I would particularly like to point out that this school year we have the pleasure and honour to organise the “Festival for Arts and Music at the European Schools” (FAMES). This biannual event, which is open to pupils from all European schools and accredited schools, is designed to give music and art enthusiasts from secondary schools the opportunity to meet and exchange culture. It will take place during the week of 11-14 March 2020 and you will be able to find out more soon.

There are as well two other important events, that I would like to share with you already today, and that you should save in your calendars:

Christmas Market, together with European School Luxembourg 2
June 2020
School fair (the exact date will be communicated)

I am looking forward to welcome you to these dates that are so important in the school communities’ calendar.

The only thing left for me to do is to wish you a successful school year 2019/2020.


M. Wedel
