Hello All,

It's my firt time on the forum & I wonder if anyone can help please.
We are moving to Dherynia in September next year with our daughter who will be 5.7 years old next year.
I'd like to put her into a local Greek school in that area and I'm wondering if anyone has a child going to one of these schools and could tell me what they are like and how they went about enrolling them please?

Many Thanks

my daughter has been going to the C school in dherynia since first year (6 years old) loves every minute of it. it helps interacting with local kids early to help her pick up the language quicker, my daughter is now 8 and speaks fluent greek. the school placement will be dependant on where you are in dherynia as there are 3 schools here. hope this helps

Thank you Baznight!

Yes I found out (eventually) that there are 3 primary schools in Dherynia, but would you know how easy they are to get enrolled in & what I need & when I should do it please?

Thank you for your help.

i'm sure we enrolled around easter your probably best off just going in as soon as you arrive to see which school you will be allocated to, you'll need your little un's birth certificate and passport (or at least we did anyway). very easy process as the majority of school staff are very helpful.

Hi,

I've just been in touch with Dherynia A & C and they say that my daughter would start in the nursery next year (being 5 and a half) and not the primary school.
Is that right, she's currently in Reception in the UK and would be in Year 1 next year?

Thanks
Ania.

Hi

Yes, that's right. In Cyprus, they don't start school until they are 6 years old. The way it works, is that although the school year runs the same as the UK, from September, your child needs to be 6 between the January and December of the intake year. Also, they do prefer that your child speaks some if not a lot of Greek when they are younger, as your child is, so that they can fit into school properly and not be left behind in the classes with the lack of understanding.

The kindergarten's over here, are pretty much like reception classes. There is a lot of art work and work by play, with some basic writing and maths involved.

Once they start school at Grade One, it is extremely intense, much more than the UK. They have lots of different subjects with allocated times throughout the day/week and lots of homework. Even if your child was to make up 6 in December, you would probably be better to wait until the following intake as this would give both your child and yourself chance to pick up the basics of the language. Helping with homework (which there is a lot of) is even harder when you don't understand the language.

Best advice, start learning your alphabet now and then you have some understanding of how to put some of the words together to be able to help your child.

It's great that you want your child to go to the Greek School, they are really good, I'm sure you'll be happy with them, whichever one you go to!

Thank you Snowy for clarifying that.

I'm just starting to learn the alphabet myself at the moment.

All the best.
