Celebrating Apokries

What a fun and busy day we all had on Saturday! Some of us watched a fantastic play at the Hellenic Centre, some made carnival masks, some dressed up but we all danced our hearts out in our PTA carnival party!

Changes in our school celebrations

Dear students, parents and friends of the Saint Sophia’s School,

As you are aware our school has grown so much the last two years that we have been looking constantly for alternative venues to host our celebrations. Our efforts have been very intense during last year. Unfortunately, mainly because of the high cost involved, these efforts have been unsuccessful.

As a result, and after thorough consultation with the School Governing Body, we have now decided to limit the number of classes that will participate in each celebration. More specifically:

  1. Reception classes, Y1, Y3, Y4, GCSE 1 and GCSE 2, the choir and the dance group will perform on the 28th October celebration. Only the parents of the pupils of the aforementioned classes/groups will be able to attend the celebration.
  2. The whole school will participate at the Christmas celebration and all parents will be invited to attend.
  3. Nursery classes, Y2, Y5, Y6, AS and A Level classes, the choir, the dance group and the representatives of the flag will take part on the 25th March celebration. Only the parents of the pupils of the aforementioned classes/groups will be able to attend the celebration.
  4. The summer fête will be organized by the Nursery, Reception, A Level and those students who are leaving the school. Only the parents of children who participate will watch the fête. The remaining classes will hold summer parties in their classrooms where parents will be able to attend. The end of year certificates and the school magazine will be distributed by the Form teachers at the end of the day.

All students will be required to attend school on the days of celebrations. Those not participating will be involved in classroom activities closely related to the theme of the day (arts and crafts for our younger pupils and analysis of historical texts for the older). Each school celebration will be ending with the participation of all students who will sing the National Anthem or a summer song as appropriate.

Thank you for your understanding and continuous support.

Three Hierarchs Day

On Saturday 28th January we will celebrate the Three Hierarchs Day. The school will meet at 9.30 am at the church for a special liturgy which will last approximately one hour. The children who have been appropriately prepared will receive the Holy Communion. If you do not wish your child to receive the Holy Communion during the liturgy could you please let the Form teacher know. You are kindly requested to arrive on time in the morning, as any noise inside the church due to late comers is very disruptive and disrespectful. Please note that after the liturgy the pupils will be transferred  to St Marylebone’s School by coach. All pupils will be collected from the school as usual at 1.15pm.
