I think this year will also be the first year of school for prince Emmanuel but I am not 100% sure!

The kids of Philippe and Mathilde go to the Dutch speaking school "sint jan berchmanscollege brussel" in Brussels. It is a public school in Brussels with a good reputation.
Also all the childern of princess Astrid went/go there to school!

No she goes to another school but it is not known wich school.

LadyLeana 08-29-2008 04:22 PM

Louise goes to a private school in Tervuren, but I don't know the name.

Wonderful thread! These children are gorgeous. I can't wait to see them attending their first school day. :wub: Princess Elizabeth is becoming a real beauty. A little queen.

And ANP has also joined the club: ANP Beedlebank
I searched "the Sint-Jan-Berchmanscollege" so that I got all the royals...
Although I suspect they are the Belga pics, so if I'm right, pic your watermark...

Belgian royal kids are very cute. :wub: I have question when chilren in Belgium start school. I just counted that little royals went to school 1st time at age of 3, kind of early to start a school...:ermm::books:

Marengo 09-01-2008 06:21 AM

Thanks for posting these links, nice to see them all :).
I suppose that the St. Jan Berchman school is a Flemish school? I checked the website several times and I don't think it is even possible to have a french version of it. Very wie of Princess Astrid and Prince Phillipe to put their children there. Esp. as in private they probably will be more exposes to French, so here they can balance it.

leanne 09-01-2008 06:26 AM

what great pics. Thanks for posting the links. Looks like Prince Gabriel is going to be tall - those long legs already

LadyLeana 09-01-2008 08:38 AM

Yes, it is a Flemish school, one of the best in the country actually (very difficult to get into as a mere mortal, and also Jesuit if I'm not mistaken). And children can start school from 2.5 years old in Belgium. First they go to kindergarten of course. They only really start learning things from about 6 or 7 ys.

I agree. He actually looks like he's as tall as or even taller than Princess Elisabeth.

Until what age does the primairy school go, 12 like in The Netherlands I think? I believe Princess Luisa Maria will be turning 13 in oktober, so this must be her last year, or is there a secondairy school attached to this one?
