CampionKnights have been collecting second-hand fiction books since the beginning of May to help the organisation Network for Children’s Rights.

We are very pleased to announce that the total number of books collected is 240! These are for ages 3-18 and are in English, Greek and Dutch. The 240 books will be donated to the above mentioned NGO in the next few days.

We would like to thank all those who have contributed in any way and have helped us achieve our goal. We wish you a wonderful summer!

On behalf of CampionKnights,

What does Campion mean to you?

Campion to me was where I finally found an environment where I felt comfortable enough to develop my personality.

It allowed me to explore my abilities and find my passion.

The teachers from all departments supported my passion for drums and used it to motivate me by adapting it to the subject they were teaching.

The international community in Campion was great in teaching diversity and acceptance.

Once again, the pupils in EAL demonstrated their knowledge of English by performing sketches for an assembly. First, pupils in Year 1 pretended they were going on a bus journey, where every passenger delayed the trip by having to get off the bus to retrieve a personal item. Just when they thought they were finally all set to go, the irritated bus driver, played by Vasoula, realised she had left the bus keys behind! Next on stage, the pupils in Year 4 got all dressed up with false noses, hairy toes and dinosaur spikes to recite a poem about the importance of liking yourself regardless of your appearance. Last but not least, Year 3 performed a version of The Little Red Hen whose friends wouldn’t help her do all the hard work of sowing the seeds to make flour for baking some bread but later bitterly regretted it!

All of the children thoroughly enjoyed rehearsing and recited their well-practised lines with enthusiasm and expression as they worked on learning new expressions, vocabulary and correct intonation. Congratulations to all of them!
