A JOURNEY TO MINOAN CRETE IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

International Monument Day today was celebrated accordingly, since our older students created short presentations about all important Minoan exhibits of the Archaeological Museum in our town. We marvelled at how determining the Minoan civilisation has been, constituting the very first one in Europe and how multifaceted it was, concerning art, religion and societal structure. At the end of all presentations, students divided into groups in order to answer questions about the exhibits, as part of our final memory game. The fastest team to get most questions right as well as the most lively presenter were awarded with (eatable!) prizes and the fondest of memories. We all parted wishing to organise another such educational trip the soonest possible. Museum Mission: Accomplished! Well done to our wonderful teenage explorers. You can find all today's photos here.

CELEBRATING POETRY AND SPRING

On 21st March, our young learners were inspired to produce the following colourful posters to welcome spring with poetry, drawings and... new words! Older students wrote poems about their favourite friends, including Sherlock Holmes, whose stories we adore to read.
