Please note that TLC Private School Term Dates observe the Greek Orthodox Church’s calendar and in accordance with Ministry of Education expectations, will close on these and public holidays.

There will be some non-religious days when the Cyprus public schools are closed but TLC Private School remains open. The above dates are accurate at the time of publication but the school reserves the right to amend them in the light of changing circumstances. Students must be in attendance at school from the first day.

Absence: Attendance is a legal requirement of all students until the legal age at which they may leave school. Attendance registers are kept in accordance with the law and actual attendance reported to parents.

Attendance is also noted on school leaving certificates. All absences must be explained by letter or email. It is important that the school is able to demonstrate its commitment to the principles and legalities of regular attendance.

Examination Students: For examination year students, additional lessons may be provided and the days of attendance will be arranged to meet the examination schedule which follows dates published across the international community of schools and is not specific to TLC Private School.
