Ezelsoor (6-12 jaar) -
Free book covering day
No need to buy any covering paper, bring your exercise books and textbooks along to the Boesdaalhoeve community centre.
When you arrive, you will be asked to select 5 sheets of (free) covering paper. Volunteers will be there to guide you and help you do the covering. Pay a visit to one of our illustrators if you want your covered book to be something a bit special.
Ezelsoor is going to be a bit different this year. In order to focus as much as possible on social distancing, the Ezelsoor session will be held on two different dates this year, to help divide the participants into bubbles of 20 children. Together with their parents, we will allow these groups to enter, one after another, every 30 minutes.
Registration in advance is obligatory this year.
Use the link below to choose your preferred day. Fill in the form, specify the time you will be joining the covering session and also state whether you require an arts and crafts kit.

The information stand is available to help you find out more about leisure activities for children. You can buy tickets for (family) shows and register for workshops and courses. We also offer a bar and entertainment.
SUPERB COVERING PAPER
Students from the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwinstituut (secondary) school are normally asked to make a drawing after which Sint-Genesius-Rode primary school pupils are required to vote for their favourite design. However, with classes being held online owing to the corona crisis, we have had to come up with a creative solution. All children aged between 6 and 14 were invited to send in their self-designed covering paper. During an online voting session, in which 319 people participated, Lancelot Gilliot's design was chosen from 16 splendid drawings. He is a student at the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwinstituut in Sint-Genesius-Rode. Congratulations, Lancelot! His design has now been turned into superb covering paper, which you can use to cover your books.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR ENTHUSIASTIC BOOK COVERERS
We are looking for volunteers to help parents who have never covered any books before. Parents with several children can also often use a helping hand. Would you like to help us out for an hour or two?
