Goffs Greek School supporting the Union of Cypriots in Britain – Cyprus Independence Day celebrations

Goffs Greek School was invited to dance at the Union of Cypriots in Britain – Cyprus Independence Day celebrations on the 1st Oct 2017.

With such short notice the children had only a few hours to learn their dances the previous day.  Without much to say they performed well and the event organisers were very grateful that Goffs Greek School was able to help.

We would also like to thank the children and their parents for giving up their Sunday evening and supporting the community.
