The Year 1 Cultural Event, held on Thursday, December 19, 2019, was a complete success.

Year 1 students read poetry in their own language (English, Greek, Turkish, Armenian, French, Spanish, German, Russian, Hungarian, Chinese) and Played music for their parents and teachers. Furthermore, a group of Year 1 girls prepared their own choreography and danced a Greek Christmas song (Χριστούγεννα Αγκαλιά’), preparing the audience for the tree lighting ceremony which followed the event.

With regards to the Christmas trees, it is worth mentioning that Year 1 students decorated the trees in the outside quadrangle by the Hall with toys that they bought form the Cyprus Leukemia Association and all money raised from this initiative were given to children sick with leukaemia.

A huge thank you to Year 1 Pastoral Team for this wonderful initiative and a well-done to all students involved.
