Much ado about... Shakespeare!

We were ecstatic to watch our student's performances in commemoration of  four hundred years since the death of William Shakespeare.

The children quoted Shakespeare’s masterpieces using modern and old English from the original text, with great ease. The experience they gained of the Shakespearean world with the wonderful stories, the exciting characters and the perfect use of the English language was invaluable.

The audience embraced the plays. At the end of Romeo and Juliet, I realised that the passion of our little actors combined with the powerful Shakespearean text had brought tears in the audience’s eyes. This has never happened at a children’s play!

What was more, I saw the brightest smile of the year on our cute little juniors faces! They spoke English, danced, sang, played and didn’t want to leave the stage!

This is Language In Action! Our school’s main aim is to help children “experience” the language.

I would also like to thank the Elpida Association of Friends of Children with Cancer that showed us the way to save a child’s life by donating bone marrow and the 17 new donors! We all admire your perseverance in trying to make the world a better place.

Furthermore, I want to thank these wonderful women that once again stood by your children and supported them in their journey to knowledge. Our wonderful teachers!

Congratulations to our students who succeded in their exams and were awarded their certificates on the same day. Keep shining my stars!

Finally, I owe a great Thanks to you, the parents, who have been trusting and supporting us for all these years.

Now, may our brilliant students keep the beautiful memories of  this school-year in mind and cherish them during their summer adventures by some soft and sandy beach in Greece.

Happy Holidays to you all but…beware of Midsummer Nights’ Dreams!!!
