  • Junior Achievement – MindReset

    Published 19/01/24

    Year 6 were delighted to have showcased their ideas to reduce the use of plastic waste during the Junior Achievement MindREset competition held at The Metropolis Mall, Larnaca. Our teams developed a product through a series of guided lessons; they learnt about environmental challenges, how to find solutions, to design and produce a product and finally how to market it. The children stood before a panel of judges who listened to ideas, watched the presentations and quizzed them about the process and teamwork. We would like to sincerely thank the children and their parents for their time and support.

  • SENIOR SCHOOL CELEBRATES ARTS DAYS OF CHRISTMAS

    Published 18/01/24

    Arts events started early on in December with the 'Christmas village' performance in Kalopanagiotis, where music and orchestra students performed some well-loved Christmas music and songs in the heart of the village where staff, parents and students enjoyed the musical start to the festivities. Rather than an Arts week we decided to have the ‘Arts days of Christmas’; the last 8 days of school. The Arts Captains and Art students designed and made the 'Artvent' calendar, which has been opened every morning to reveal the events for each day.

    Students enjoyed a range of activities such as string art, creating interesting abstract artwork for Christmas cards. The Art for Change club and KS5 art students have been working hard to create Christmas ornaments and Christmas gifts to sell during the Arts days; all proceeds will go to charity. The Music department organised a Christmas sing-along in the hall during breaktimes, whilst some of our orchestra students visited the Irida Foundation, in collaboration with the BWB Club, spreading some Christmas cheer. 

    The Arts captains organized a Christmas Charity bake sale that was a huge success. KS5 Drama students have been preparing for the ‘Christmas Specials', which will take place during breaks in the main Drama studio this coming week, where we will announce the winners of the film and photography competition and the Christmas specials. The Arts Days of Christmas have been a captivating showcase of creativity, generosity, and festive spirit!
