Dear Campion Families,

It is uplifting to see the cold weather move on and welcome the warmer spring air. I am looking forward to feeling the sun on my face and spending more time out on my balcony in the fresh air this weekend having been huddled inside for the last few months hiding from the cold!

Once again, I am always amazed at the extra mile our pupils go in their education. Despite virtual fatigue a great number of our Senior School pupils have been involved in the Panhellenic Forensics Association Tournament. This event involves debate, monologues and impromptu speaking. It is a challenging competition but very rewarding for those taking part. I am looking forward to watching some of our pupils compete in it over the weekend.

Junior School pupils have also been going beyond the classroom. They have been busy creating pictures and images around the theme of “Antiquarianism and Philhellenism from the Thanassis and Marina Martinos Collection” for the Cycladic Art Museum drawing competition. This is an annual competition that Campion Junior School takes part in. I think this is a particularly challenging theme and I am looking forward to seeing the results of your children’s creativeness.

It goes without saying that it makes me proud that our pupils are so engaged with their learning, seizing every opportunity they can to grow and develop. Of course, they would not be able, or possibly inspired, to take these chances were it not for the support and encouragement of their teachers and, more importantly, their families – well done all!

As ever the best way to keep our community healthy is to make sensible decisions and take thoughtful precautions against COVID 19 for you and your family. If each family does this the wider community will benefit.

Stay safe and be kind.

Kind regards

Duncan Rose
