We are a Russian family living in Limassol, Cyprus for the last 13 years. All our kids attend Heritage School. I have three kids: 4-year old boy (Pre-K), 6-year old girl (1st grade) and 14-year old girl (9th grade). I am looking for a private tutor, a native english speaker, who will assist and control the completion of all of their homework and talk to us about the needs of our kids academically if they are behind in certain areas of their study. We are looking for someone to work approximately 5 hours a day, Monday to Saturday (from around 4pm-9pm, though hours are negotiable) I have been trying to find a suitable candidate for quite some time but not sure where to look. May be you know someone or know of websites where I could find a good tutor? I would appreciate any advice. Kind Regards, Natalia
We think it’s time to meet and to see how we can make the life of our children easier, more comfortable and fun.We will have the opportunity to meet each other, to discuss education, additional lessons, places to go, etc. We plan our first meeting after the holidays, April, 20,2015. The meeting will be in at the end of Makarios avenue (here http://www.baptistslimassol.com/). This is not a religious meeting, The church has kindly offered us a place to meet, where there is also an additional big room for children to play, if some of the parents want to come but don’t have anybody to leave the kids with. Please write here or to me personally if you wish to come this time or to the next meeting. Pls. write also do you prefer morning (10 am) or everning (6pm) on the 20th of April.Regards,Tolkachev lev firstname.lastname@example.org 096 527 606
I was wondering if people could answer a gereral question I have been wondering about. What do kids who go to English language schools do after they leave school (especially if they do not speak Greek and do not want or are not able to study abroad)? I am just thinking that it must be difficult to find work there if you don't speak/write Greek, and not all 17 year olds want /are able to go abroad on their own to study.
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
