Summer Fair and Annual Parents Meeting - a big Thank You!

First of all, we would like to thank you for attending the AGM this year. It is very important to hear your views in making the school better every year. The draft minutes have already been posted on the website.

Thank you also for coming to our summer fair, although we started later than expected and it was really warm in the rooms. Thank you for your patience. The children however did their best and enjoyed their performances. Thank you as well for all the delicious food you brought. We are more than grateful!

During the fair, we had our school logo competition and would like to thank Andrea Antoniadou and Chara (Joy) Cleverly for participating! One of Andrea's proposals was the one to get the most votes.

We are very sad to see Mrs Sofia Williams and Mr Nikos Mitakidis go this year. They were fantastic members of our team. Their enthusiasm, their planning, their initiative and creativity made the lesson a pleasant and fun environment. Both their groups were benefited not only by their skills but also by their character and ethos. Thank you very much and our door is always open, if you wish to return. At the same time, we are pleased to welcome Miss Andromache Kesoglou, who was at our fair, to our school from September.

Greek School of Oxford participated in British Museum's Great Postcard Challenge!

On Sunday 4th March 2018, students and parents of the Greek School of Oxford visited the British Museum for an exclusive exhibition called Community Preview of Charmed Lives in Greece: Ghika, Craxton & Leigh Fermor. The exhibition explored the friendship of the artists Nikos Hadjikyriakos-Ghika and John Craxton with the writer Patrick Leigh Fermor and how their work was inspired by a shared love of Greece.

As part of this visit, our students took part in the Great Postcard Challenge and had their own artwork, inspired by the exhibition, displayed at the museum on the day.
