End of Year Events
The year 2020 has arrived and for us, this means that the second term of lessons for both adults and children is about to start. The first term was fantastic with record numbers of students and lots of special events in addition to the many lessons.
Before closing for a well-deserved break and to enjoy the festive period, we put on two special events for the children at the school. The first was for children from 4 years of each upwards: The Christmas party. On the morning of Saturday 14th December, we welcomed a good group of kids to the school for 90 minutes of entertainment in English. Three of our teachers were on hand to ensure that the children had a great time. There were Christmas songs and games with fantastic themed resources which got everybody involved, laughing and working and playing together. After an hour of fun Christmas games there was a break to have a snack before beginning the creative activity. The children made lovely three-dimensional Christmas trees out of cardboard, coloured in and decorated with glitter and stickers. The time passed really quickly and everyone went home happy and satisfied.
The following Monday we had our yearly Skype link with the school I.S.Xantheas in Athens to wish them happy Christmas. This was the fifth consecutive year for what has become a school tradition, very much appreciated and welcomed. More than ten of our students from the elementary and secondary school courses, came to say hello to their Greek counterparts. We chose a wonderful song to sing them with a memorable and lively chorus. The song spoke about hanging decorations on a Christmas tree and therefore, we brought our school tree into the room so that the kids could hang images on the tree whilst they were singing. The Greek school very kindly had made a big banner to wish us a happy tenth birthday year at the school. It was as always, a lovely experience being able to share Christmas joy with a school abroad. We can’t wait to do it again next year.
We have lots of special events in store for the second and third terms of the school too. You can follow us here or on our Facebook page. In the meantime, we wish you a year of happiness, serenity and joy
