There will be up to 8 quick fire rounds for you to show your brain power and also a round or two in Greek for the super clever out there… You’ll have opportunities to double up your points, use your joker and stay ahead of the pack on a night generally filled with polite taunts and great laughs.
Entrance is £8 and a light Cypriot ploughman’s dinner will be provided.
Please feel free to bring your own drinks but in case you forget, a small selection of beers, wine and soft drinks will be available to purchase on the night.
Team will be arranged in accordance to the number of attendees. As usual though, if you have a preference as to who you would like to sit with, please feel free to invite friends outside of the Greek school to put a table together.
Please let us know if you are able to attend and if you have any questions please speak with either Nick or Andreas
All the children and young people of Saint Demetrios school started the new school year today and were encouraged in their studies with prayers in Church.
Firstly, all students from Saturday morning attended the Divine Liturgy in English. We think that is important that Saint Demetrios Greek School not only aids the linguistic development of the children in its care, but also looks out for their full spiritual and cultural development. So, alongside the usual curriculum of Greek language, history, culture, music and dance we also give the children the opportunity a few times a year to become familiar with the teachings and traditions of the Orthodox Faith.
Then, after the Liturgy the traditional Sanctification and Blessing with Holy Water took place. This was ably led by Fr. John and Fr. Evangelos. The children behaved beautifully and listened attentively under the careful direction of school headteacher Mrs Stavroula Prodroumou, As the headteacher said “Καλή σχολική χρονιά με υγεία πρόοδο και χαρούμενα πρόσωπα!!” (A good school year to all, with health, good progress and happy faces!)
