Back to school for primary kids

By Christos Theodorides

Schools across Cyprus opened their doors to thousands of pre-primary and primary school pupils on Monday morning, following secondary schools, which opened last week.

In total, 332 primary schools, 271 public kindergartens, nine special-education schools and 102 special-education units within primaries and kindergartens will host over 50,000 pupils.

Newcoming first-graders numbered 8,501, while total teaching staff was 4,398.

Special-ed teachers accounted for 747, and kindergartens were staffed by 785 teachers.

Early on Monday, President Nicos Anastasiades wished all pupils well at the start of the new school-year.

“A wish for children starting a new school-year: May your dreams become reality,” the president tweeted.

“Your teachers will see to it.”
