Since the age of 9 it has been the ambition of Krini to act, and those of you who attended the English Play ‘Salem’ will have seen her compelling performance. Now in Year 3, she is working towards her IGCSE in Drama, practising her audition and performance skills, and has just completed the LAMBDA Grade 3 examination at Centre Stage Drama school in Nicosia.
Her aim is to study at Juilliard in New York, one of the most competitive music, dance and drama schools in the US, with an acceptance rate of only 7.2% . We wish Krini all the best in her endeavours and have no doubt that she will realise her dream .
Myrto of 1G has had a passion for drawing for as long as she can remember and her talents were spotted early on when in 2005, at the age of 5, the writer Maria Pylioti asked her to illustrate one of her books. In December 2012, her Christmas design was chosen by our School to be used for its official Christmas Card. Myrto is currently working on illustrating another book; we hope to share more of Myrto’s work with you over the coming years.

There has been a tremendous response of schools to World Maths Day which falls on March 14th every year.
March 14th is the birthday of Albert Einstein, 3.14 (the American way of writing the date), also happens to be the approximation we use for π, when we divide the circumference of any circle by its diameter!
The challenge for this year was to set a world record in answering 10 million mental arithmetic questions by pupils playing against each other in real-time battles of mental arithmetic through the internet.
Schools from 98 countries were registered for this international event. In the UK alone there were more than one thousand schools taking part. It proved to be an incredibly exciting event and the total number of questions answered actually came to 38 904 275.
The English School ranked 3rd worldwide as having the highest school contribution and Mr Nikandrou's class, 1W, are to be congratulated in coming 2nd in the world for highest class contribution.
We will remember this date next year and we are determined to try even harder to beat the 2 leading schools from Hong Kong!
