Enrollment

Registration for the academic year beginning in September takes place the previous June, at which time a deposit is made for tuition fees and other school services.  Students not enrolled in June, for reasons foreseen within the relevant provisions, may do so no later than the day before classes begin.

Monday

Tuesday

Wednesday

Administrative Offices are open Monday through Friday from 08:30 until 16:00.  During the summer and during holidays, the schedule is amended.

During the summer (approximately one month), all schools are closed. Nevertheless, parents and students can contact the Administration Office one day per week; the day is specified by the Ministry of Education’s 2nd Directorate for Secondary Education.


Absences

In accordance with Ministerial Decision 10645/ΓΔ4/22-01-2018/Β’ 120 (volume Β’120/23.1.2018, articles 23,24,25,26,28,29 regarding student attendance), the characterization of absences as excused and unexcused has been abolished and the maximum number of absences for attendance to be considered “adequate” for all grade levels at Junior High Schools adhering to an extended schedule has been set at a maximum of 139 .

 

Therefore, should a student exceed the limit of 139 absences during academic year 2018-2019, attendance will be deemed “inadequate” and the student will have to repeat the same grade level.

 


Termination of School Attendance

School attendance is terminated:

a) Upon graduation
b) Prior to graduation:
    i) Upon parental request for student’s transfer to another school (for personal reasons or further to the recommendation of the School’s Faculty Association and Administration).
   ii) By decision of the Faculty Association, in accordance with relevant educational legislation.


Medical Services

The School’s First Aid Station (“Infirmary”) is located in Tsolainou Hall and is open during normal school hours.  It is staffed by a nurse, Ms. Anna Koliokitsou, who provides first aid in the event of an emergency.  A second First Aid Station, located at the Aggelikouseio Indoor Gymnasium and Chandreio Athletic Center is also staffed by a nurse, Ms. Eleni Zavra, and serves all of the sports facilities at the Psychico campus.

New students are examined by the School’s pediatrician and Head of HAEF’s Medical Services, Dr. Antonio Makris, prior to enrollment.  Also, all 7th grade students undergo medical examinations during the course of the academic year.  The physician is available to discuss students’ health issues with their parents.  For an appointment with Dr. Makris at the School’s Infirmary, please call 210 6798199 or send an email to md@haef.gr.

Medical Assessment for participation in Physical Education classes

During students’ attendance at the College, parents are obligated to provide the requisite medical documentation (Personal Health Card, Medical Certificate for sports, Cardiology evaluation) in order for their children to participate in Physical Education classes.  Failure to do so within the set time limit will lead to their children’s exclusion from Physical Education classes, as well as from other, similar School activities.  Exclusion from Physical Education classes will be recorded as unexcused absences.


Field Trips and Excursions

During the academic year, Junior High School students go on three (3) field trips and one full-day excursion.  These outings, scheduled and approved by the Faculty Association at the beginning of the year, serve specific educational, pedagogical, artistic or humanitarian objectives.  Field trips, in particular, are viewed as learning and pedagogical tools; therefore, they are complemented by preliminary work prior to the outing, creative and research activities during the event, and an assessment afterwards.
