Saturday 24th March

Dear parents,

On Saturday 24th 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, AS and A Level classes) are warmly invited to attend at 10.30am. 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. 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 25th March at 11.30 am. Our school will be represented by the flag delegation.

A sugary recipe!

What a lovely day our primary school students had watching the play “A sugary recipe” based on the award winning homonymous book by Foteini Konstantopoulou. A big thank you to all the parents who offered to help – without them we wouldn’t be able to attend this event!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Theatre trip – Volunteers

Thank you to everyone who so generously offered to help with our theatre trip on Saturday 17th March! As we had too many volunteers we had to draw lots.  We have now informed all the parents who have been selected. If you haven’t heard from us via email please assume that you have not been selected to accompany the children on this trip. Thank you for your continuing support!

Cake and Easter candles sale

The Parents’ Association of our school invite all children to the event we organise on Saturday 10th March throughout the school day. The event will include a sale of cakes, cupcakes and biscuits and also sale of “lambades”, the traditional Easter candles.

In order for this event to happen and be successful we need your help. Please bring to school on the morning of Saturday nut-free cakes, cupcakes, biscuits and other shop-bought or home-made treats. We would also kindly ask you to give to your children a small amount of money in order to be able to buy the cakes.  Parents are welcome to visit us in the theatre of the school at the end of the lessons to buy any unsold cakes and “lambades”.

All proceeds will go towards the needs of our school.

Welcome Spring!

There might have been too much snow on the playground on Saturday but Spring is officially here and the Year 1B pupils welcomed it with reciting a beautiful poem they wrote themselves and by making the notorious March bracelets that everyone in Greece loves wearing at this time of the year!

 

 

 

Severe Weather

St Sophia’s School will be open tomorrow, Saturday 3rd March. In the unlikely event that we have to close the school due to severe weather tomorrow morning, information will be placed on the noticeboard of the school website. Please check the website regularly for updated information.

Happy Lent!

What beautiful paintings and crafts did Year 1A children create on Saturday! They proudly presented us with their artworks during our Assembly and talked to us about everything we should know about Lent! Happy Lent to everyone!
