Hi

We are moving to Cyprus and was originally looking at Oroklini but since have seen a house in Dhekelia that we love, but I have tried researching Schools as I am bringing 2 young childre age 1 and 4 and all I can find is Army related stuff for service personnel, it seems that the school only allow service Children, can anyone please give me any information about being a civilian living in Dhaklia

Thank you

If you intend to stay for a while then let the little ones go to playschool in the village where they will be speaking Greek in no time, then they will fit in well at the local school. Ok some will say that the education is not as good as the UK, but you have to work with what you have. If you want there are good private schools in Larnaca which teach in English but of course you have to pay school fees there. As for Oroklini, it has most of the amenities you could want and there are a lot of UK ex-pats so you should find socializing no problem. If you want more in detail please pm me.

The schools on the Dhekalia base are for the children of service personnel
but they do accept others on a paid basis. My daughters went to the schools
but it is not a cheap option and you must budget that the fees will increase
pretty much yearly.

The other option mentioned above is to use the normal state schools - your
children are at a good age to pick up the language reasonably quickly.

If you do choose to live in the Larnaca area then there are quite a few
schooling options to choose from as they get older and go through school.

HTH

Cheers

Thank you both for your helpful replies, I am just so worried about the boys it's a big move but with a 1 year old and a 4 year old it scares me as I really want to get it right for them, as it's them I am moving for in the long run, I fell in love with Cyprus after getting married there, I love that the Crime is low and the no tolerance on drugs, and of course the more relaxed lifestyle.

I have already thought long and hard about the schooling situation and because they are so young I feel that it would be silly not to let them intergrate, and was thinking once they can understand Greek I would have a private tutor for their writing and reading in English as well as teaching the myself,

I have read some things on the Internet that say English Children are sometimes segregated, and their education suffering, but then I have read really possitive stuff.

Thank you again both of your replies were very helpful Smile
