Welcome to the new families

Below you’ll find information on school rules, educational principles, general organization and the school calendar.

Ré-inscriptions 2024-2025

La ré-inscription de votre/vos enfant(s) se fait en trois étapes :

  • Confirmer que vous avez bien (re)pris connaissance des documents essentiels et que vous continuerez de les respecter : charte des principes éducatifs, Règlement 2024-2025, Notice sur le Minerval 2024-2025, calendrier des congés scolaires et journées pédagogiques 2024-2025.
  • Remplir un formulaire de réinscription par enfant en ligne : cliquez-ici. Renouveler l’opération autant de fois que vous avez d’enfants à réinscrire.
  • Verser l’acompte sur Minerval (600 Euros) avant le 15 janvier 2024 sur le compte de l’école IBAN BE17 0688 9920 8821 avec la mention « réinscription 2024-2025 + nom et le prénom de l’enfant ».

L’acompte sur le minerval sera déduit automatiquement de la première facture 2024-2025, émise en septembre 2024. Nous vous rappelons que cette somme ne pourra nullement être restituée en cas de désistement/annulation d’inscription ultérieur de votre part. L’ensemble des conditions et modalités financières sont consultables ici.

Si vous êtes dans l’impossibilité de verser ce montant, ou si vous n’êtes pas en mesure de vous engager formellement pour la date limite du 15 janvier, veuillez prendre contact par e-mail : accounting@agnesschool.be.

Une ré-inscription sera considérée comme complète et acceptée si elle est enregistrée dans les temps impartis et si les étapes susmentionnées ont été dument complétées. Un e-mail de confirmation d’acceptation sera envoyé.

Nous vous rappelons que, passé le 15 janvier, nous ne serons plus en mesure de donner priorité aux élèves actuellement scolarisés à l’école et que nous ouvrirons les inscriptions aux familles extérieures.

General information by grade

  • Thursday 29 August at 8pm: Pre-primary and primary school – All new families (first time in Agnes School) are invited, without children. The director will recap the main fundamentals of the school. Parents will have an opportunity to meet the teachers and relay-parents for an informal exchange around a drink. This meeting is focused on the general aspects of the functioning of the school and is aiming at familiarising yourself with the main stakeholders.
  • Wednesday 4 September at 8pm for ALL parents of pre-primary (maternelles) and primary (P1 to P6). No children. This meeting is complementary to the one of 29/08 for new comers. Parents will meet the teachers and hear about the pedagogical objectives and curricula for their children. It is really “pedagogy-oriented”. It is also an opportunity to meet all other parents of the class.
    We strongly recommend that new families attend those two meetings.
  • Monday 9 september at 8pm: Secondary school only: All families of S1, S2 and S3 are invited for an “all-in-one-meeting”. They will get to know the school, the teachers, the pedagogical objectives and families of the secondary school; a drink will be served for a nice get-together.

All M0 and M1 students are welcome to come to school on Thursday, August 29 between 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. to familiarize themselves with their class and drop off their materials.  

For new children of M0, an adaptation period is in place to allow for a smooth transition. Mam or dad will be able to accompany their child in the classroom on the first day of class between 8 and 9 a.m.  

Parents who wish to do so will be able to attend the ritual of the daily start-up, participate in the activities or simply take time with their child.  

Between Monday 2 and Friday 13 September, parents who wish to do so can pick up their child at 11:45 am, after the child’s meal.   

New pupils of M1 can be accompanied by mam or dad on Monday 2 September, in class, until 9am. 

Your child is entering P1 English or P1 Dutch? 

Mam or Dad (one adult only) can accompany the child up the staircase, in his/her classroom, to help carry the back-pack and all the items requested (see lists below). Mam or Dad will be asked to leave the room as soon as possible, and not later than 8.40am. 

Fancy-Fair, Candlemas, bank holidays, holidays, special events, teachers’ training days…write it all down now!

The first parents-teachers’ meeting will take place on:

Help is always welcome, whatever shape or form it may take! With a few minutes, a half-hour or more, you can already do a lot! We often need support to organise an event, take pictures/vidéos, sew or repair a few items here and there, help at the Kiss and Ride, help at the library, etc. Let us know what your skills are, and we’ll get back to you! 

What are your skills? How would you like to get involved? Here is what we are looking for! 

Parent representatives

Parent representatives serve as contact partners for parents. They seek to strengthen ties between parents and the school, and to foster a climate of collaboration, friendship, kindness and trust that benefits everyone, particularly the children.

With the greatest respect for the freedom and educational style of each family, the parent representatives contribute to the parents’ understanding of the interest in maintaining a demanding, simple, hard-working and happy family environment, in which children grow in maturity and freedom.  

Parent representatives also act as representatives for class groups and show initiative in all activities involving the parents and families of their respective class. At school level, through their role and their close relationship with the school management, they help to strengthen ties between the school and its families and to perfect the educational project.   

There are a couple of parent representatives per class.  Do not hesitate to get in touch with them.  

Getting involved in school life

Parents play a prominent role at Agnes School. The school invites you to get involved in the academic follow-up of your children and in school life, so that families and teachers can work together, hand in hand. 
 
By actively participating in school life, you will contribute to the family-school partnership, which is at the heart of our educational project. There are numerous ways to get involved. What are your main interests and skills? 

Getting involved in the chaplaincy

Agnes School considers that the spiritual growth of its pupils is an integral part of the tailored educational project that it offers. 

Pupils and their parents therefore have the opportunity to actively participate in the chaplaincy.
