Section representatives

Each language section (ES, EN, FR, DE) and each level of study (primary and secondary) must have a section representative. The main function is to participate in the Education Councils, collecting all the issues that the families of their section wish to discuss.

Section representatives are the voice of the class representatives. Their main task is the preparation and rotating participation in the Education Councils (EC), representing parents of their language section before the school management and teachers (and students in secondary school), dealing with general educational issues proposed by the families of the language sections. Some key issues are harmonized exams, class trips, SWALS, educational support of all kinds, well-being, BAC.

To prepare for the EC, in collaboration with the class representatives of their section, the section representative:

  • Gathers and communicates the views of the section on a variety of pedagogic and school life issues.
  • Represents the section’s interests and concerns to teachers, the school management and AMPA Management Committee (MC).
  • If needed, escalates different issues to the level of the OSGES (Office of the Secretary General of the European Schools) and AMPA MC.
  • Together with an AMPA delegate at the EC, unifies the proposed topics and presents them at the EC.

Without section representatives the voice of parents cannot be heard in the school!

FAQs

Class representatives have two basic functions:

  1. To manage general problems in the class. For example, if a number of pupils in the class have a common problem, the class representative contacts the teacher (or the school management) on behalf of the whole class. Some classes also have a bank account for common expenses. Depending on the class, the class representative can manage this bank account or a treasurer is elected.
  2. To be the link between the Management Committee (MC) of AMPA and the class. The AMPA MC has a WhatsApp group where information is posted. The role of the class representative is to relay this information to the families in their class.

The election of a class representative is annual, a class representative, and in most cases a deputy class representative is elected every September at the beginning of the school year.

In this case a new representative must be elected, or if there is a deputy representative, he or she will step in.
