Winter Book Fair 2019

BY FILIP KALAPISH.

On Thursday the 12th of December, the EEB IV’s Life Skills and Community Building Working Group has the pleasure to invite you to the school’s first Winter Book Fair.

The magic of the written world

This Winter Book Fair aims at bringing editors and book sellers together under one roof for the school community to discover, browse and have the opportunity to purchase books in different languages.

We also wish to introduce the written world to our pupils in a festive way, hoping that the magic of the season will help them develop another way of looking at books.

The Holiday season is also a good time to bring all school sections and levels together for a moment of sharing without too much stress on teachers, parents or organisers.

They will be at the fair…

We are happy to welcome: Filigranes (EN, FR); Éditions Bayard Milan (FR); L’École des Loisirs (FR); The Little Book Den (EN); À pas de Loups (FR); Buchfink (DE); Le Wolf (FR, NL); Librebook (BG, EN, ET, FR, HU, IT, NL, RU); Se m’ami (IT).

S7 pupils will be selling baked goods for everyone to enjoy. Profits from the bake sale will go to the funding of the different BAC events organised by the pupils, to the Community Fund and to the Pupils’ Committee.

Christmas market will take place next to the fair. Items made by the pupils involved in several projects will be for sale.

Because it might be cold, warm beverages will be available at the Snack Shack.

We need your help!

This could not be a community event without us asking for some help:
From all parents: We would appreciate donations of baked goods for the pupils bake sale to be a success and for everyone to be given the chance to enjoy a delicious treat (biscuits, scones, cakes, muffins…). We are looking forward to discovering all kinds of holiday sweets from all over Europe!
Please make sure the name and class of your child are clearly written and securely attached to the container so it can find its way back to you.
From our older pupils, parents and teachers: We would like to festively decorate the venues and would very much appreciate decorations but mostly hands and time to help us achieve this. If you are interested in donating decorations or time please get in contact with us ([email protected]).

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
