Education in the section is much more than hours of class. Lead by example, become an active member!
Indeed, ASEICA functions thanks to the support of active volunteer parents. We strongly encourage all members to actively support and develop the association.
Whatever your skills and expertise, whatever amount of time you have available, we want to hear from you!
The Board functions with working groups focusing on key management areas: finance, legal, relations with Education Nationale, communication, IT…
The association runs a variety of social events that develop communication between members across all campuses, ensure a good integration of newcomers to the program and generally enhance its mission. Events include the traditional picnic, Christmas parties, International Day, theater nights, parent coffee mornings and lunches...
Collège social events
The collège is an interim stage between the high parental involvement in the primary (or at least outside the school gates) and the almost complete independence of the lycée. Sadly it is a time when it is easy for parents to lose contact with the day to day school life and to know less about school friends and activities. This is why it is all the more important to maintain and encourage a social events program. The following events were all important in the past few years and give parents a chance to meet teachers, pupils and other parents.
International Parents Social Committee - IPSC
The Primary International Social Committee brings together parents from the international primary sections at Haut Sartoux and Trois Collines. We aim to support the community of parents and children in these sections. We meet regularly at social events organized in cooperation with the school and the teachers. When funds are collected, our committee supports children in their academic and social development. Like any committee of volunteers, we always welcome enthusiastic new recruits.
Parent / teacher events
These are held once or twice a term in someone's home and are attended by some of the Anglophone section teachers (when they do not have class), the Head of Education and some Board members. It is a good opportunity to meet informally and find out more about the Anglophone section. Parents are asked to bring a dish and something to drink as a contribution to the meal.
Some parents also organize a similar lunch or other event just for their child's class. This can either be just parents or can include students. It can be held at home, depending on space, or elsewhere, depending on budget. We urge you to take the initiative with your class and send invitations via your child.
