Friends of ELA Basel
The Friends of ELA Basel (FELA) consists of parents and staff working together to support ELA Basel to achieve its mission of fostering a strong community.
FELA’s objectives are to support ELA Basel in providing the best possible all-round educational experience for the children who attend it.
Specifically, FELA’s objectives are:
- To provide and assist with opportunities to enhance the educational experience of the children.
- To promote and extend the positive relationships between parents, staff, and children, and thus enhance the social wellbeing of the ELA Basel community.
- To proactively look for opportunities that enables ELA Basel to be a positive contributor to its immediate and wider community.
- Fundraising to support the above objectives.
In 2018 the FELA committee organised an International Day. Parents, children and staff from all areas of the organisation came together to enjoy a day filled with performances, games and an incredible international buffet.
In 2019 300 children, parents and staff enjoyed a sponsored walk in the Grün 80 Park with proceeds going to the school charities.
In 2020/2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we had to cancel our planned festivities but we are hopeful that we will be able to plan another exciting event in the spring/summer of 2022.
