Can anyone help me with Cypriot Schools

Postby princess » Sat May 21, 2005 9:28 pm


Really new to this site and could use all the help I can get!!

We are hoping to move to Cyprus as soon as we have sold our house in the UK.

My son is 5 years and speaks no Greek so I am in two minds about schools ie Private or Public?

I am going to get the whole family some private tutition on speaking Greek before we come.

Also I am a Qualified Dental Nurse 25 years old, my Husband is 30 years old, he works as a courier in the UK but can turn his hand to most things any ideas where we can get work.
We have money to by a property but will still need to work , I am under no illusion that we are going to become rich we just need money to live.

Thanks Faye[color=red]

HI, if you browse this forum a bit, there are many threads about schools in Cyprus and moving with kids....

Generally its no problem, kids are very fast in picking up the language.
In local/public schools the lessons are in Greek. In private schools like f.e.
Mediterranean High or American Academy in Larnaca lessons are held in English.
You have to check though wether you can afford those schools.

Better off with Cyprus Weekly, I've personally never seen any job ads in Cyprus Mail. An even better tactic would be to contact the Dental Services department in the Ministry of Health, they may be able to put you in contact with the Cyprus Dental Council who may know of any vacancies. According to the MOH website, you would also need to register so you can download the appropriate form from there too. ... enDocument

In Cyprus, recruitment practices tend to be very different from the UK, with 'who you know' coming into play far more than it does over here. If you're looking to move over, it's best to start building contacts ASAP.
