European schools system

European schools system is like a never-ending maze of paperwork and bureaucracy.

It’s as if they believe that the more forms you fill out, the smarter you become. Secretary general and deputy secretary general are too busy worrying about their pensions and summer vacations to actually produce anything useful.

It’s a system where children are just tiny cogs in a big bureaucratic machine, and education takes a backseat to administrative tasks.

It’s time for a major overhaul, because right now, the European schools system is about as effective as a chocolate teapot.

This year, as every year, Actions Without Borders of the European Schools will be organizing its Christmas Market to raise money for long term projects (such as Senegal and Gabon) as well as for short term project (for example Burkina Faso, Brazil, India, Gambia, etc.). The Christmas Market will be take place in the Canteen of the school Lux II, Mamer. Mr. de Tournemire will open the event at 10h30.

Thereafter several groups of children will perform: the primary choir “Robert Schuman”, the flamenco dancers, La Tuna group, the Santa Lucia procession, the Brazilian dancers “Abadá Capoeira”, etc. National stands will be offering culinary specialties, exotic dishes. As usual a flea market, a lucky dip, arts and crafts will also take place. Good condition toys for the flea market can be handed in to Mr Cencetti (primary Lux 1) or to the concierge of ADM building Lux 2.  We look forward to seeing you all at the market!

Aim of the European Schools

Educated side by side, untroubled from infancy by divisive prejudices, acquainted with all that is great and good in the different cultures, it will be borne in upon them as they mature that they belong together. Without ceasing to look to their own lands with love and pride, they will become in mind Europeans, schooled and ready to complete and consolidate the work of their fathers before them, to bring into being a united and thriving Europe.

Marcel Decombis, Head of European School, Luxembourg between 1953 and 1960
