We are very proud of our student, now graduate, Elia Melissa Kasinis. She was the youngest player to participate in the Cyprus National Women's Team and to participate in the FIBA Women's European Championship for small countries. She joined The English School in September 2015 with continuous outstanding academic results. As her Form Tutors Ms S Jamgochian and Mr G Papageorgiou stated, she is a mature, hardworking and target-oriented individual. Despite the pressures of being in Year 7, she continued to be committed to her A-Level studies; however, she also trained strenuously at the Club Keravnos Strovolou daily and participated in games during the weekends. As Captain of her team, they managed to win both the Cup and Championships for Under 18s this year – A double win!
Elia! Keep up the good work. We are very proud of you!
