A Big Thank You!

A big thank you to everyone who contributed to our Let's Make a Child Happy campaign. Thanks to your generosity, we collected dozens of school bags, pencil cases and large quantities of other school supplies which were handed over to the Hamogelo tou Paidiou organisation on the 20th of October, 2017. We are very happy with the wonderful response we got from everybody and pleased to be doing something positive to help children not as fortunate as ourselves. THANK YOU!

The growing plant attracts a great deal of business for the previously struggling store. After Seymour feeds Audrey's boyfriend, Orin, to the plant after Orin's accidental death, he must come up with more bodies for the increasingly bloodthirsty plant.
What will he do?
Can the plant be stopped?
Or will it take over the world?!

PRC Blood Drive



The PRC is taking the initiative to organise, for the first time this year, a blood drive in collaboration with the Agia Sofia Children’s Hospital, which will take place after the holidays. The aim is twofold: (1) to help the children in need, and (2) to establish a blood bank that will be readily available to the Campion community should it be needed.

In fact, every two seconds someone in Greece needs blood. Although a lot of people are eligible to donate blood, very few do, making blood donors part of an elite group. By taking part in our blood drive you can help spread the word about how great it feels to donate blood and give someone a chance to share more laughter, joy, and time with family and friends.

Therefore, we kindly ask you to let us know, by return mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (deadline 17 November 2017), if you would be interested in participating in our blood drive.

However, there are certain restrictions that need to be considered before replying. Please check the following list:


  • You are under 18 or over 65
  • You have spent more than 6 months in the UK between 1986 and 1996 (unless you were a vegetarian)
  • You have taken aspirin or antibiotics in the last 7 days
  • You have a cold
  • You are pregnant
  • You have had a major operation in the last 6 months
  • You have visited certain African or South-American countries
  • You have had tattoos or piercing

El dia de la lengua española Assembly

On the 12th of October 1492 Cristobal Colon arrived in the Bahama islands and discovered America. In 2014 the United Nations declared the 12th of October the day of the Spanish language. To commemorate this day all pupils studying Spanish from years 7 to 11 prepared several sketches, songs and dances which displayed their communication skills in Spanish.

The event was a great way for pupils to put their language studies to practical use and show their parents how their skills are coming on.

Congratulations to all for a job well done!

Australian Embassy Rugby Seminar

The Australian Embassy, along with Panathinaikos Rugby Club, presented a seminar and coaching session to Campion School’s rugby players. The Australian Embassy’s focus was women in sport and this tied in very well with Campion School offering rugby to our girls for the first time. The Australian Ambassador, Ms Sophia McIntyre, spoke of the love that Australians have for sport and how sport is an equaliser amongst people, how women should not face barriers and how more sports featuring women are starting to get noticed in Australia. Two female players from Panathinaikos Rugby Club spoke about their experiences in rugby and how and why they got into the game.

After the presentation in the school Hall the Panathinakos girls, along with the head coach of the men’s team Mr Vasillis Katsakos, led a training session on the school field. Campion students thoroughly enjoyed the drills and skills being taught. Passing, tackling and mauling techniques were covered during the training session. Panathinaikos Rugby Club presented a rugby ball to Eva Papadimitriou and Arthur Tourret for putting in the best effort and technique during training.

For many of our students this was their first exposure to rugby and it was a very positive way to start the season. Rugby training will continue on the first Monday after the half-term.
A big thank you to Mr Stuart McLennan from the Australian Embassy and to Panathinaikos for organising this event and to all those at Campion who helped set up and offer their support.

On Wednesday 13th September a group of 15 students from Years 10, 11 and 12 visited the Callas exhibition at the Theocharakis Foundation which is located in the centre of Athens.

Mr Fahy and Mrs Helsby had organised a bus from school and when we arrived a very kind lady was there to guide as around the three floors that the exhibition covered. All three floors had different things to view. We looked at many of the magnificent dresses Callas wore during a number of her performances. Besides being the world’s greatest soprano, Callas was also a fashion icon. Most of the attire on view were dresses that she wore in her everyday life. They were all very impressive and elegant! We then looked at certain letters that Callas had written which were very interesting to read. Students who did not have prior knowledge of Maria Callas’s life were much more familiar with it when finished with the exhibition. Impressive photos were on display all around the exhibition, whilst some of her riveting arias were heard as background music, creating an imposing atmosphere. It was very exciting for the students to obtain the extra information on Callas’s life, since in three days’ time they would perform at the Megaro Musikis in her honour.

When all students and teachers were finished viewing the exhibition and all their questions had been answered Mr Aki, who accompanied us, took a memorable photo and we all went straight to the bus, as a long and tiring rehearsal for the concert was next!

Project 4 YOu

Recently a call went out from Mr Henderson, our Head of Seniors, for pupils interested in participating in a project to be aired on Mad TV. Of course, my answer was ‘yes’, as were the replies of Sara, Anatoly and Christo who were also keen to participate. We were told that this show was part of a project organised by the EU called Project 4 You, which aims to bring European countries together by making them aware of the common roots of their languages.

At the TV studio, there were teams of students from various other schools, whose aim it was to identify various words being described by the show’s hostess. All participants received a lengthy list of words the night before and we four Campionites tried to find the definitions of as many of the words as we could, in order to be well-prepared the following day.

As it turned out, we were only tested on three very easy ones so we needn’t have worried! Despite the stress, it was all worth it in the end because we learned a lot and we were on TV! Even though we spent hours in the MAD TV studios waiting for our turn to go on set, we had a great time because we met new people, got our hair and makeup done (which made us feel very professional) and were also given a tour of the studio. I got to see where all the magic happens for my favourite radio station, MAD radio 106.2, and witnessed all the difficulties encountered in filming a show. This was a once in a lifetime experience and I’m sure we will never forget it.
