Every year, for one week, our students experience a different way of learning. Through cross-curricular activities, multi-language workshops and real-life connections, they immerse themselves in a broad range of activities, allowing them to gain new and varied insights.
When summertime is in the air, we transform our sports fields into a giant playground. Pupils have the best time while building on strength, endurance and courage together with classmates and teachers.
The European School Science Symposium (ESSS) is a competition open to students of the European Schools years 1 to 7 inclusive. Individuals or groups of 3 students, guided by a teacher-mentor, are encouraged to explore an area of scientific interest of their choice, not normally covered by the European Schools’ science syllabus. The overall winning project in the senior category will represent the European Schools at the European Union Contest for Young Scientists later in the year.

EUROSPORT was founded in 1976 based on an idea of two Physical Education teachers from the European Schools of Varese and Karlsruhe. These teachers decided to start a friendly competition between their two schools, selecting, training and preparing teams of male and female students to compete in the main school sports, hosting the tournament on a rotating basis. Since 2013, EUROSPORT has taken on the nature of a highly professional sporting event. As of 2017, EUROSPORT was also open to Accredited European Schools, and the number of school participating grew to 16.
In 2022 the European School of Mol hosted Eurosport. 500 students and 60 staff members from all over Europe joined us to participate in volleyball, basketball, badminton and duathlon competitions.
