What We Do

Operating Hours

Mondays: Years 4 and up 18:00- 20:00

Saturdays: All children 14:00- 18:00

(On the first Saturday of every month we finis at 17:30 to accommodate the monthly staff meeting). 

Classes

We have a single form entry with an average group size of 15-20 children. In the nursery and younger age groups we encourage friendly relationships between the children and improving the Greek oral language. We cater for families that both speak and do not speak the language. 

Music Lessons

Children in every class are taught different types of Greek music by our music teacher, from traditional songs and festive jingles to fun melodies and modern hits.

Dance Lessons

All children enjoy music and dance lessons and practice for various performances throughout the school terms. Dance lessons are held in the halls with our dedicated dance teachers.  

Break Time and Tuck Shop

Saturday at 15:15 is break time and we run a tuck shop for the children. For £1 they can choose 3 items from a variety of snacks and drinks. 

Young children, nursery age through to year 2, are supervised in the lower block whilst older children have the use of the upper block and are allowed to play outdoors when the weather permits.

Homework

Each pupil has a homework diary in which staff set out homework for each week. Parents are encouraged to ensure that homework is completed on time and the diary signed. Parents are also encouraged to speak to their children in Greek as often as possible as this will benefit the child's progress and grow their confidence. Even listening to Greek music or watching Greek television is encouraged and there is a wealth of Greek material online to explore.

Youth clubs

Families are encouraged to take part in our youth clubs throughout the year.  We hold various activities in site and off and communication about this is made direct to each of our members. 

Youth Festivals

Families are encouraged to come along to all the festivals we hold.  The children look forward to many to many of these events such as Christmas, Easter, The Written Word, Independence Day and Sports Day.

Fundraising

This is the largest part of what we do as a charity.  Without funds raised through our members and third parties we would not be able to continue to provide such a rich and diverse curriculum to our children. 

 

Donations are always welcome in any shape or form. 

Please speak to one of the committee for further details on how you can help.
