Enarmonisis

The Grammar School Enarmonisis Programme aims to create trust, understanding and cooperation between Greek-speaking and Turkish-speaking teens, their families and friends.

A number of our Enarmonisis students are members of the Cyprus Friendship Programme (CFP) a non-profit, all volunteer bi-communal organisation.  CFP is modelled after a similar programme that operated with great success in Northern Ireland for 20 years and brought together more than 2000 teenagers from the Catholic and Protestant communities. In Cyprus the programme is in its seventh year of operation.

Through CFP, our students Andreas Assiotis, Eleni Kleanthous and Maria Chrysanthou were selected to spend the month of July in the USA with American families. The teens were hosted in three different locations.

The activities they participated in during their one month in the United States included conflict resolution workshops and ropes courses, in addition to social and environmental work.

Noteworthy activities of the year were:

October:

* Reunion of the teens from all over Cyprus.
* Arrival of CFP American Executive director and American coordinators for the 2014 Graduation ceremony.

 

November/December/January/February:

* School presentations by students on CFP
* Fund-raising dinner
* Euroscola competition
* Euroscola European Parliament participation in Strasbourg

 

March:

* Interviews of prospective CFP teens at the Home for Cooperation
* First pairing meeting of selected teens
* Second pairing meeting of selected teens
* Parents’ and teens’ dinner

 

April/May/June/July:

* Teen matching with American families
* General meeting of American and Cypriot coordinators with parents and selected teens
* Ayios Nicolaos summer camp
