Kids and parents alike will enjoy games, a tombola, and culinary home cooking from several countries around the world. Purchase books, dvds and video games from around the world at our world book market. Enjoy music music featuring Battle of the Bands winners.

Come to the Timmerdorp and create something from wood. Or, enjoy several games & activities at Gameland including a ring toss, face painting, arts & crafts, puppet show,  stroopwaffles, and much, much more.

About Euromarkt
The Euromarkt is a Parents´Association fundraiser that has been in existence for more than 25 years. The market typically attracts more than 600 visitors throughout the day. The school is open to the community and teachers, students, parents, staff and friends share different cultural activities and food while raising funds for the school. Money raised at the event is invested in our school for things like school trips, school events, school equipment, and more.
