Motivation for successful children

Mon, 10/11/2014 - 07:04 -- Lydia Makram

The fast pace of life and the rapid, cultural, political, and social transformations often do not allow us the luxury to have the time to reflect on our own lives.

Nobody seems to be able to protect children against these rapidly developing and so unnatural conditions of life.

Cyprus Geography and Science Fieldwork Trip

Tue, 11/04/2017 - 11:39 -- Lydia Makram

After many years of attempting to get this trip off the ground, we were finally successful in delivering an excellent trip. The students stayed in a small village 500 metres above sea level to practise a variety of fieldwork skills, ranging from river studies to coastal ecology. The weather was varied with even a short spell of hail stones on our first fieldwork day. The students loved the rock climbing activity where everyone climbed at least 10 metres on a rock face.

The Cooking Club will be taking over the Prep School Canteen next half term and in preperation we asked Year 4 students to be our taste testers for the afternoon. Students in Y4 were given a sample menu from the club's repotoire - BBQ Chicken, Quasadeillas, Apple Rings and Pizza Doughnuts and asked to rate the different dishes. They were also asked to give some suggestions of the kind of food they would like in their canteen. The afternoon was good fun and we appreciated the feedback from the students.

Year 7 Alexandrian History Trip

Tue, 21/02/2017 - 12:30 -- Lydia Makram
Last week Year 7 students went on a history trip in Alexandria. The students were treated to a wealth of inside knowledge and expertise about the city in which they were born, starting with the famous Catacombs and Pompey's Pillar and finishing with the Odium Tiny. The students were extremely impressive and our tour guide commented that they were one of the best groups she had ever had in terms of level of questioning, participation and behaviour. Well done Year 7!
