On Saturday 23rd March our school will celebrate the Greek Independence Day at St Marylebone 6th Form Centre, which is located approximately behind Waitrose, at 14 Blandford Street, W1U 4AZ. Parents of the pupils who will participate in the celebration (Nursery classes, Y2, Y5, Y6, and A Level classes) are warmly invited to attend at 10:00am. All other pupils will be involved in classroom activities closely related to the Independence Day theme. All pupils are requested to be at the school at 9:30am and to wear white top/shirt and blue/black trousers/skirt unless otherwise instructed by their teachers. Children will be collected from the above address at around 12:00pm.
You are also very welcome to attend the special service for the 25th March that will be held at St Sophia’s church on Sunday 31st March at 11:30 am. Our school will be represented by the flag delegation.
On Sunday 10th March, a delegation of ten representatives of our school attended the tribute event to Titos Patrikios, one of the greatest living Greek poets. In a full house and in a very moving atmosphere, our students stood up confidently on the stage, talked to the poet and offered him the latest issue of our school magazine, where they present their own interpretations on one of his poems. Once again they made us really proud. Well done to all!
On Saturday 9th February our school proudly celebrated the International Greek Language Day. We all attended a special assembly where we listened to a beautiful poem by Titos Patrikios entitled “My Language” as well as to A Level students’ thoughts on the significance of our unique language. Each class also worked on a variety of language projects from attempting to speak in a local dialect to finding Greek words that are commonly used in English and experimenting with writing in Linear B.
On Saturday our Nursery children delighted us with their future aspirations:
“When I grow up I want to be a policeman to catch the bad guys!”
“I want to become a dentist to take care of little children’s teeth!”
“When I grow up I will be a mum because I love children!”
“When I grow up I will be a queen!”
May all your dreams come true!
