To ensure that this year will be as successful as ever, we are looking for your support in many areas at the Euromarkt. If you have time, ability and talent, email us with your contact information and include which of the following opportunities you'd like to help with.
Book and Technik Markt - We are looking for books in all languages and varieties, videos, cd´s, dvd´s, games for pc and consoles, PlayStation, radios, and boxes to place them in. We need many helpers to sort before selling the books during the day from 11.00 until 16.00. Please include in your email whether you can help with the organization before and/or sell on the day of the event.
Gameland - a play area for children who visit the Euromarkt (ages 4-6 and 7-11). We are searching for parents and/or secondary students who want to help us this year between 11.00 and 16.00. We are also searching for volunteers to set up (9.00-11.00) and clean up (16.00-18.00). We also need supervision and help with the games/activities, and to assist the students.
Entertainment - we are in need of all sorts of entertainment, bands, theatre, comedy, pantomime… on stage or walking around. Let us know what sort of show you would like to have or can organize!
Set up and Cleaning - for this we need ALL the help we can get on the actual day of Euromarkt, to set up and clean up. If you can come early (from 8.00-10.00) or stay and help clean-up (from 16.00-17.00), please contact us with your name, email, phone number and the area where you can help. We need help with moving tables, chairs and other “heavy” items around the school. Bring all your husbands, brothers, sons and friends to show off their strength!
Food tables- the main attraction of the Euromarkt! It´s a large culinary area with food stands selling delicious food from all of the nationalities represented at our school. Attendees enjoy culinary treasures made by YOU from your cultures. Past Euromarkt events included Spanish, Italian, German, French, Dutch, Scandinavia, American tables, just to give some examples. You can also combine a region- for example - Asia or the Middle East. While we do have some confirmed tables, we are looking for much more so we need you!
As you can see, this flagship event needs help from all parents to be a success. Thank you so much for the support you have given us all year!
[:en]The Parents’ Association supported the nursery & primary event on 15th December by providing warm festive refreshments and cookies in the P3,4,5 playground after the sing-a-long. All primary & nursery families were welcome.
The event was received well by pupils, parents and teachers alike. The combination of the sing-a-long and the refreshments proved highly successful and there was a real feeling of togetherness and of festive cheer.
The secondary students’ council organised the secondary Live Aid event on 16th December in the AULA another memorable event to mark the end of term in secondary.

This year we had hoped for a bigger event but due to the early schedule of the Christmas holidays the proposal of the children’s Christmas Market was sadly not realisable with the preparations for preceding celebrations mentioned above.

w/c 9th January - Bicycle Checks w/c 16th January - Road Awareness Campaign 7-16th February - Logo Competition Entries Exhibition 17th February - Carnival 7th May - Euromarkt
