EAL Assemby - Once again, the pupils in EAL demonstrated their knowledge of English by performing sketches for an assembly. First, pupils in Year 1 pretended they were going on a bus journey, where every passenger delayed the trip by having to get off the bus to retrieve a personal item. Just when they thought they were finally all set to go, the irritated bus driver, played by Vasoula, realised she had left the bus keys behind! Next on stage, the pupils in Year 4 got all dressed up with fa...

Year 9 Santorini Trip - After a gourmet after school lunch, on Wednesday 17th May, Year 9 departed for Santorini, a gorgeous Greek island. The flight from Athens to Santorini was very short, which was great since we were all very excited to arrive. As soon as we got there we picked up our luggage and headed to our hotel “Porto Perissa”. Until we settled in it was approximately 22:00, so we just walked around Perissa. The next day, after fuelling up with a delicious breakfast we left the hot...

Pendeli Reforestation - Upholding the now 32-year-old Campion tradition of reforestation, Year 10 attended a trip organised by Mrs Economou to Kalitechnoupoli, Pendeli on Monday 27th May to actively play a role in a long-standing school tradition. Pendeli is an area that during the summers has been consistently devastated by destructive wildfires which have resulted in the near-barrenness of the area.
