Fundraising & Social Events

 

Christmas performance with all classes performing in plays, poems or Christmas songs and a sumptuous Christmas party afterwards.

 

Annual Dinner & Dance

Our largest social gathering and biggest fundraising event. Thoroughly enjoyed by children and their families. Held in a function room at a prestigious local hotel. The highlight is always the children performing dressed in national costume.

 

Sports Day BBQ

During the summer term our sports day and barbecue is great fun and includes races, traditional Greek BBQ and sometimes impromptu music sessions.

 

Carnavalia

At the start of Greek Lent the carnival tradition often inspires us to have a fancy dress party.

 

Coffee afternoons, open days and various events through the year are held with delicious cakes and treats.
