9. The Drama Department is organizing its third theatre outing of the year on Thursday December 7th. Once again we will be going to the Athens Megaron to watch a new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman, "Young Marx".

Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London, the production is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors.

1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy.

Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway.

But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the piss than Karl Heinrich Marx.

The show starts at 21:00 so we will once again be meeting there at 20:30 with tickets in hand. Tickets are 8 euros for students and 15 euros for adults. Bring money to Mr. Burk by Monday December 4. You must make arrangements on how to get there and back home keeping in mind that the show will most likely finish close to midnight 23:30ish). A. Burk

10. On Monday, December 11th all students from grades 7-12 will have the unique opportunity to visit the Van Gogh exhibition in Megaron Mousikis. Please hand the permission slip along with the 8 Euros to Mr. Papatassos (grades 7-8) Ms. Kefallinou (grades 9-10) Ms. Karaoulani (grade 11) Ms. Sykioti (grade 12). Students will depart from school at 9.30 a.m. and return at around 1.30 p.m. Thank you.

11. On Thursday, December 14th there is going to be an extended assembly for all classes for Human Rights Day, organized by the Individuals and Societies Department.

12. Art 10, 11 and 12 will be visiting the NEON CITY PROJECT to see; A Puppet Sun by Kostis Velonis on Thursday, December 14. The students will be given a guided tour. Admission is free. Students will leave at 10.30 and return at 2pm. Bring a snack and workbooks with drawing materials with you. Ms Voulgaris

13. On Tuesday, December 19th during periods 1 & 2, the World Languages dept. in collaboration with Dr. Anna Kounadi and Ms. Loukia Kefallinou will be organizing a multicultural Christmas event in the ISA theatre! All MYP students will perform carols in different languages (Arabic, French, German, Greek and Spanish) and present some interesting and very special XMAS traditions from the celebration of the festive season in several countries of the world. All teachers and administration are cordially invited to attend! Thank you! The World Languages Department.

14. All students from grades 7-12 will have the great opportunity to watch Loving Vincent, the world's first fully painted feature film produced by Oscar- winning studios Breakthru Films and Trademark Films, on Friday, December 22nd 2017 in the school theater. They will have the unique opportunity to watch an exclusive screening of the movie about Van Gogh’s life, his paintings and the mystery surrounding his death. A wonderful addition to their visit to the Van Gogh Exhibition in Megaron Mousikis that will surely enrich their experience with all aspects of his artistic life.
All IB DP grade 11 and 12 students will be escorted by their teachers during periods 5 and 6 and all MYP students grade 7-10 will be escorted during periods 8 and 9.
