Community Activities

Throughout the year the Welcoming Committee organizes a number of social outings and workshops for new and existing families. We believe that by organizing these events, parents can make connections easier not only with the ASB community but can also acclimatise faster to a new culture. Therefore, we would like to invite you to these friendly, relaxing and fun events where you can meet us and other ASB parents.

Neighborhood Program

A group of parent volunteers will provide you with useful information regarding our school and the community. They will also share their experiences and give you practical advice on moving and transitioning to Barcelona/Spain. Once you settle in, parent ambassadors will help you integrate in your new neighborhood by offering the following activities:
  • Coffee mornings with other parents that live in your area
  • Tours of your new neighborhood, including favourite shops, restaurants, hairdressers, etc.
  • Family gatherings and/or play dates with children that live close to you
