Dear Parents, Teachers, Pupils, Alumni and Friends of Campion, On the occasion of Campion’s 50th anniversary I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for the donation of 500€, arising from proceeds from the sale of the 2020 Campion Calendar featuring Endangered Mammals of Greece. Campion School has been a loyal supporter of WWF Greece all these years and for this, we are most grateful.
This calendar also reflects the school’s active interest in environmental issues as well as the ongoing bond between teachers, pupils and alumni – Harry and Lana David sponsored the initiative to publish the calendar, Nick Amvrossiou, was responsible for the printing process, Rania Vassiliou promoted the project. Great teamwork!
I would also like to recognize the role of the Campion Active Ecologists Club, supported of course all these years by Pagona Economou. I wish that this club will continue to inspire and encourage the pupils of our school to be truly active and responsible citizens for the environment.
The donation will go towards supporting our work in the field, namely the operation of the marine protected area on the island of Gyaros. You can learn more about this project and many of our other activities on our website (www.wwf.gr). Thank you once again for your support!
