A digital community to strengthen and enhance the alumni’s connection to their school was presented at a special evening on Thursday, November 29, held at The English School in Nicosia.
The Digital English School alumni community was introduced as part of an innovative initiative that gives the opportunity for graduates to learn how to promote and support their school through the new Alumni Portal. Through this digital community, The English School graduates can stay in touch with each other, remain informed and have access to updates about any future developments. The community also grants access to graduates to help support their school, which aims at constantly modernising and upgrading its facilities and academic standards.
The portal allows each graduate to support the school that provided them with their academic, social and psychological wellbeing, by providing mentorship through the student-alumni mentorship programme or by offering internships to current students amongst other schemes, helping build strong connections between current and former students.
The event was honoured by the presence of Energy Minister George Lakkotrypis, an English School graduate, accompanied by other highly regarded graduates from the field of business, arts and politics. During his speech, Lakkotrypis referred to the high level of academic standards followed by The English School and their contribution to later life. He underlined the importance of each graduate to remain an active member of the school community, supporting in their own way its valuable efforts.
The evening was complemented by music provided by the acclaimed musician Alex Panayi, yet another English School graduate, who performed together with a group of musically gifted graduates and current students.
The event aimed at uniting English School graduates providing them with the opportunity to learn about the school’s activities and goals achieved to date, such as the newly built facilities and the new objectives set by the board of management.
