Code of conduct
Extracurricular activities rules
- The rules of conduct of the European School Brussels II also apply during extracurricular activities and supervision.
- Inappropriate behavior will be subject to disciplinary measures. It may result in the child being excluded from the activity or supervision.
- Children must respect the facilities*, other participants, and APEEE staff.
- Pupils are responsible for any valuables (mobile telephone, jewelry, clothes, wallet, bank card, etc.) which they bring with them; any items left behind in the sports hall are placed in a box in the cleaners’ room until Friday, when any unclaimed items are sent to Eureka. The APEEE accept no responsibility for the loss or theft of pupils’ belongings.
- Participants and visitors must wear appropriate sport shoes in sports areas.
- To keep the sports areas and changing rooms clean, no food or drinks are allowed other than water.
- Pupils taking part in activities are asked to wait for their instructor in the sports hall and not to go unaccompanied to the rooms where their activities take place.
- Pupils must not loiter or smoke in the immediate vicinity of the school before or after extracurricular activities/supervision. The consumption of alcohol on school premises or in the vicinity of the school is strictly prohibited.
*In case of damages, parents might be asked to pay the related costs.
Fair play charter for extra-curricular sports activities
- The extracurricular activities include time for playing and time for learning, and I intend to do both.
- I accept the decisions of my teachers and referees or umpires, even if they are wrong. Anyone can make a mistake, although we must all do our best to avoid doing so.
- I am willing to help everyone by being here, by sharing my experience, and by understanding.
- I play to win, but I accept defeat with dignity.
- If I win by cheating, I have not won at all. I abide by the rules out of respect for others.
- I avoid spitefulness and aggressiveness in everything I do, say or write.
- I come to the assistance of any player who is injured or whose life is in danger.
- I am always sincere and brave.
- Irrespective of the sport, the competition or the opponent, every match is special.
- Respect is essential in sport: respect for the rules, for my opponent and for myself.
- I take care of the equipment which I am allowed to use.
We ask the parents of children who are affected by a medical condition which could interfere with their activity to warn the extra-curricular activities office by e-mail.
We encourage these parents to think twice before registering their child to one of our activities.
Medical assistance during the APEEE services procedure
The school nurses are normally only available during school hours from 8:20 am to 4:20 pm.
If your child, registered for an APEEE service, falls ill or is the victim of an accident during the course of this service, the school nurse will be called on, in case she’s present and available.
In the event that the illness and / or the accident occurs outside the hours of presence of the school nurses or in the case where the latter are absent or not reachable, the services of the APEEE will call an ambulance to take your child to the hospital.
For all the services of the APEEE provided outside the school (example: transport, swimming pool, climbing … ..), our supervisors, instructors, bus drivers or other stakeholders will immediately call the emergency services.
Despite the fact that a part of the APEEE staff follows a training “First Aid” each year, our staff can not take the responsibility of making a diagnosis concerning the severity of the accident or illness.
Therefore, public medical emergency services will be called immediately to avoid any risk.
After the school nurse or emergency service have been contacted, parents will immediately be informed so that they can join their child in the school infirmary or hospital.
In case the cost of the ambulance fee is not covered by the school insurance, the payment of the bill will be borne by the parents.
Please note that if children remain in the school buildings outside school opening hours and the times when they are supervised by the instructors in charge of the extra-curricular activities, they are only covered by insurance policies taken out by their parents, as the insurance policies covering the extra-curricular activities and the school do not cover children who are not being supervised.
Please remind your children that valuables must be given to the instructors for safe-keeping during the activities and must not be left in the changing rooms.
We accept no responsibility for loss or theft of children’s possessions.
