Celebrating Outstanding Achievement in Geography!
We are thrilled to share that three of our students recently represented Team Cyprus at the 19th International Geography Olympiad (iGeo 2023) held in the captivating city of Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. Meet our exceptional participants: Giannis Agapiou (Year 7), Daphne Stavride (Year 7), and Iraklis Giorgallis (Year 6).
The iGeo 2023, an international platform for young geographers aged 16-19, saw participation from nearly 50 countries across the globe. Our students engaged in various challenges that put their geographical knowledge and skills to the test, including written response tests, multimedia assessments, a stimulating fieldwork exercise, and a creative poster exhibition themed "Creative Cities for Designing Inclusive Urban Communities."
We proudly announce that Giannis Agapiou secured a Silver Medal and a commendable national ranking for the Cyprus Team in the mid-twenties.
The journey was not only intellectually rewarding but also culturally enriching. Our students immersed themselves in a plethora of cultural events and musical experiences. They had the privilege of exploring Indonesia's rich geography, from the enchanting tropical rainforests to awe-inspiring volcanoes.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the organizers in Cyprus, the iGeo Task Force, and the Cyprus government for their unwavering support. This incredible journey would not have been possible without their assistance, covering all costs and expenses ensuring this experience remains in our students' memories forever.
Congratulations to our shining stars for their exceptional performance, and a big thank you to everyone who contributed to this unforgettable event!
