TREHANDIRI – a traditional Greek boat taking on board the child into its first journey in the learning world.
A home away from home
A home away from home, the school establishes an ongoing communication channel with parents hence and an open door policy.
Each child is regarded as a unique individual within our school community and is viewed as a contributor to the process of learning. This makes every child an active part of an entire system of interconnected and ongoing relationships – peers, teachers, family. All children have preparedness, potential and curiosity – the aim of the school is to kindle and maintain the appetite for learning, making the learning experiential, fun, substantial and purposeful.
