Hi I have two boys, one with dyslexia who is 7 and my other child is 10 who is quite a bright child who is very competive. We are thinking about moving to Paphos but the most important thing for me is to get their schooling right. They currently go to a very good private school which meets both their needs and was wondering if anybody could recommend good schools in Paphos. I have been to see the new Aspire school which I was quite impressed with, very different to their current school but had a nice feel. thanks in advance. Jo
Hi Everyone, I'm just wondering if there are any of you out there that home-school your children here in Cyprus, or if you know anyone that does? It's something that I've considered many times, but don't have enough information on it. Ideally, I would like to home-school a group of children along with my own two, therefore providing some social aspect as well. I would organise trips to coincide with what we are learning, do a lot of hands-on learning with experiments, nature walks etc. etc. If there's someone out there that's already doing this, then I would love my kids to join them. If not, then I'm considering doing it myself. I am extremely frustrated with the fact that we send our children to so-called "private" schools, pay our hard-earned money, just so that our kids can essentially go to a school where English is spoken. Really, isn't that what we're paying for? For our kids to go to an English-speaking school? Anyway, I didn't want to write this to be controversial in any way, I'm genuinely interested in finding out more about home-schooling in Cyprus, and if anyone would be interested in sending their child to such a group.
does anyone have scouting experience who would be interested in establishing an english speaking scout group ? I know that there is a brownie/guide troupe in Paphos but as far as I am aware there is no Scout group. I only have experience of guiding but have 2 boys so would like to set up a local scout group. Please contact me if you would be interested in helping me or if you have children who would be interested in joining an english speaking group. Best wishes jane

Dear All! Next year we are going to Cyprus. I have 8 and 12 years kids. We have house in Chloraka. Last year I was sure about ISOP, but several days ago I found info that Aspire school is moving to new location http://infopaphos.blogspot.com/2014/04/new-location-of-aspire-school.html I need your opinion about this school. How many students in class? Mostly Russians, Cypriots or UK? Who ate the teachers? ISOP has a lot of cypriot teacher, of course, they have UK education, but my son was shocked by their English. Thanks.
Hi there! Bit of a random question... does anyone know where I'd be able to purchase a Silver Cross pushchair out here in Cyprus (preferably Silver Cross Surf 2)? I'm willing to travel anywhere on the island as I have my heart set on it. We've tried New Baby City, CXC, Mothercare, Mamatoto and a few more shops I forget the name of! Any help appreciated :) Thank you.
