TRIP TO TROODOS

Children at ASPIRE were feeling on top of the world yesterday when they took a trip to Troodos, the largest mountain range of Cyprus.

Pupils explored Troodos Square, a site just 5km from the island’s highest peak, Mount Olympus.

Reception and Year 1 pupils spent time in the area’s playground before enjoying some of the panoramic views and experiencing traditional souvenir shops.

Other Primary children joined a group of Secondary students on a scenic walk close to a pine-filled forest.

On the way to Troodos, pupils also stopped off at Kolossi Castle to learn about its history and, for some Secondary students, to practice the Greek language.

The castle, 11km west of Limassol, was built in the 15th century on the ruins of a former fortress.
