Dear Campion Families,

The school campus feels much more like a school now we have Years 11, 12 and 13 back on the campus – but sadly still not the full Campion experience yet. At this time, we do not know when other year groups will return, but as soon as we have news we will inform you – as always.

However, this last week our teachers have had the opportunity to work with students in exam years. This is significant as both IBDP and IGCSE will not be examined in Greece. The time we have had physically in school has been invaluable for teachers to focus their exam students on completing the necessary assignments that will be used by exam boards to award grades for their qualifications. Our Year 12 students are enjoying time on campus and are similarly working hard.

Despite the initial challenges Athens faced with Covid testing due to the problematic government online platform everything is now running smoothly.  Families and staff have been, as ever, resilient in making sure they acquire, carry out and prove their tests in order to enter the campus. Well done all.

I highly recommend you visit the school website and watch the “Virtual IB2 Arts Exhibition”.  The work done by our pupils is of a very high standard and gives an indication of the quality work completed by them in all subject areas despite Covid conditions. You will also see the success of our pupils in the “Panhellic Forensics Competition” and the “Greek National Physics Competition”. It is certainly inspiring to see how our pupils are successfully going beyond the classroom to develop important skills for the future. Their successes, across all year groups in the Senior School, is well deserved.

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
