Message from the PTA – Party for the Greek Carnival

Dear parents,

The PTA is organising a party for the Carnival season (Apokries) on 12th March 2016, at 12pm.

Pupils may come to school dressed up and there will be an opportunity for them to take part in various activities and create masks for the carnival! We would recommend that each child would need about £5.

We would like to ask for lots of party finger food contributions from everyone for the food stall, such as sandwiches, sausage rolls, spinach pies, crisps, biscuits, festive treats, juices and fizzy drinks. These are to be brought to the main hall in the morning.

We are in need of volunteers, so if you are able to assist in the preparations or run a stall, please email pta@stsophiasschool.com, or just come and find us.

Kind regards,
The PTA.

Celebrating love!

What a lovely surprise we all had yesterday! Years 1B, 2A, 4 and AS/A Level treated us with a special assembly dedicated to love! We listened to some sensitive readings, recited beautifully by our older students, we smiled at the cute messages that the little ones wrote to their loved ones, we watched a beautiful fairy tale dramatised by Y2A pupils, and we sung “I love you” in different languages along with Y4 pupils!

All pupils will be collected from the school as usual at 1.15pm.

Educational trip to Cyprus

The Cypriot Educational Mission organises a trip to Cyprus for 10-12 year old children attending Greek Community Schools in United Kingdom. The trip will take place during the week of the English Half Term (29th May – 3rd June) and children, who will participate, will be hosted at the premises of the Baptist Camp. During their stay the children will have the opportunity to explore Cyprus and socialise with other children of their age. All costs in Cyprus, accommodation, food and excursions, will be paid by the Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus. Children will only pay for their flight. During the trip children will be accompanied by two teachers of the community.  Details about the program of the tour will be provided to stakeholders. If you would like your children to participate in this trip please contact us in order to send you an application form.
