The Taipei European School's original conception was for the purpose of servicing the international community's needs, educating their children at the highest level of accredited education. These ideals are supported by the partnerships with the European and Taiwanese communities.
European Community Partnerships
TES celebrates our school heritage on Europe Day each year, with guests comprised of the Trade Offices of the curriculum countries: European Economic and Trade Office, the British Office, the French Office in Taipei, the German Institute in Taipei, as well as the other European Offices.
The school also works with the European Chamber of Commerce Taipei (ECCT) on joint Corporate Social Responsibility events like the annual Beach Clean up, Christmas Luncheon. Close ties are maintained with the British Chamber of Commerce Taipei (BCCT), the Chamber of Commerce and Industry France Taiwan (CCIFT) and the German Trade Office Taipei, with projects to support the students with experiences such as giving presentations, offering internship support and other events which give students amazing opportunities to interact in commerce.
Taipei City Government
TES also gets involved with many Taipei City Government organised community activities. The Primary students create a Chinese New Year lantern each year which has been a regular feature in the city's Lantern Festival.
Local Schools Collaborations
The school gets strongly involved with the local school network, sharing the knowledge and teaching pedagogy and operations of our school and also learning about the ways things are done in local education environments. The school is also a member of the Council of Administrators of Taiwan Expatriate Schools (CATES).
As an international school we are also part of a number of different network organisations - with each Section ensuring connections to associations that enable professional development training and knowledge sharing. The opportunity to demonstrate our expertise and knowledge and our great school environment assists with recruiting the best teachers to TES.
These associations include: The Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISSIA), East Asian German School cooperation, Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE). Membership of these associations gives opportunities for the students to join with and compete against schools in the region in Music, Sport, Maths, Model United Nations, as well as for staff to attend Professional Development conferences and workshops.
