Does anyone have any experience with med junior and med high in larnaca?
I'm looking into this school as we are planning to relocate to Cyprus at the end of the year, any info on fees etc would be great. My kids will be 8 and 13 and we are looking to be in paralimni or thereabouts, also can anyone recommend any state schools in paralimni. I'm keeping my options open at the minute(for 8 year old).Also any information on xenion school in paralimni would be extremely helpful

Thanks
Lindsey x

Do these schools run any form of 'out of school' provisions?

Childcare at either end of the day... would be be something that people would use?

Thanks

Most schools here (state and private) have an early start (the school day has been designed to cater for the oppressive and dangerous heat - so an ealy start and an early finish) - one or two (private) have breakfast clubs to look after youngsters whose parents have to drop them off early (7:30 - 8:00). The school day starts at 8:00am. Most schools are finished by 1:00 or 1:30. Afternoon clubs are normally provided on one day a week (Wednesdays) - on other days there are a series of clubs proided at private schools (for an extra fee) but few will go beyond 4 or 4:30ish. The vast majority of children in Cyprus are cared for by retired grandparents (normally Yaya - or Grandma) and more rarely by house-maids - so there isn't a huge demand for afternoon clubs - besides the afternoon is also time for the private tutoring...

Default International school fees

You will find that any private English school in Cyprus will cost you around that. It might seem a lot, but keep in mind that for example the International School in Amsterdam was 12,000 Euro 20 years ago...

feedback regarding that school is not good, a lot of the British teachers have either been sacked or have left.

Our children 4 and 9 start at St Georges in Payia on September 1st. Fees for both are around 7500 euros per year, the teachers are very well balanced and the school although very small, has a really good feel to it. Its location down by the Sea Caves is also very calm. The children did a 3 day taster in May and loved it so much they went back for a 4th day.

Only good things heard and seen thus far

Hi, can anyone offer some information regarding the rumour that the Ministry of Education is about to close, or has closed, private educational schools, institutes in the Peyia region?

We have heard that the expat school in Emba has been closed, the one in Sea Caves and the other 2 in Peyia are about to be closed by the end of this month?

Anybody with any info please?
