Athens and Exam Day

Today was the last day of classes for students in Athens (exam day tomorrow!). Students in all classes participated in presentations and finalized their culminating assignments. In the afternoon, students had free time. Most students took some time to study for their exam, and then took a break to venture into the city one last time, find a bite to eat and do some shopping.

After dinner, students spent the remainder of their evening at the hotel preparing for their exams. Staff stopped by a local bakery and picked up some study snacks (Greek cookies!) as study fuel. It was an early night for most students as everyone wanted to be well-rested for the next day.

Tuesday morning, students woke up early for breakfast and fueled up for the day. Students spent the remainder of the morning studying for their exam at noon.

Once exams were completed (woohoo!!) students had free time to explore the city one last time before dinner. Many students took this time to walk through Plaka, shop, and scope out somewhere to enjoy one last gyro. At 6:30 staff and students dolled up met for a dinner banquet at the hotel and enjoyed one last meal together. After dinner, students and staff relocated to a conference room where activity coordinators presented students with awards and shared a short video of photos to reminisce over everyone’s favourite moments of the trip.

Following the trip down memory lane, students and staff headed up to the rooftop patio of the hotel to enjoy one last celebration together with a beautiful view of the Acropolis and the rest of downtown Athens. As the program comes to an end, we can’t help but wonder where the time went. This program was an experience all students will remember forever with friends they will never forget.

Thank you for your interest in Blyth Academy International Summers.

After careful consultation with our staff and vendors, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all International Summer programs for the 2020 season. Given significant and widespread disruptions to global travel, and the uncertainty of when operations will return to normal, it is simply not possible to plan and operate these programs to our high standards of safety and execution.

If you were planning to leverage our International Summers program to reach ahead and earn a credit over the summer, there are many alternatives available, including Summer School courses at our bricks and mortar Academies, Blyth Academy Online and our newly launched Virtual Summer School.

For more information, or to talk through possible options, please contact the Admissions team via admissions@blytheducation.com or 416-960-3552. The Admissions team can also speak to you about options to complete the current academic year if this is of interest as well.
