Dear Parents & Guardians,

As many of you may be aware tomorrow, 30th January, is the annual celebration of The Three Holy Hierarchs, Trion Ierarchon, Τριών Ιεραρχών (The Three Guardians of Education). Previously St Catherines has not closed on this particular day but this year the closure of educational institutions has become law in Greece. It had been my intention to stay open but I have been informed this morning by the Greek Education authorities that we must close.

I want to stress that I am not at all happy with this decision but I am concerned about the implications for the school if I ignore the instruction. Therefore it is with regret that I inform you that St Catherine’s will be closed tomorrow Wednesday 30th January.

I apologise sincerely for the inconvenience this is going to cause many families but I hope you understand the situation I am faced with.
