PINEWOOD IS GOING HOME
Monday, September 12, 2022 was a historic day for Pinewood American International School of Thessaloniki, as Pinewood’s Early Years & Elementary School returned home to its original building. This was a return to the Anatolia College campus where Pinewood was established back in 1950. The newly refurbished building is located on the Anatolia campus, a facility that offers students an exceptional academic, social, and physical environment conducive to modern, flexible learning in Thessaloniki’s only international school.
It was a day of excitement for all of our students, faculty, and families as they entered their new school with high expectations. Anatolia College President, Dr. Panos Vlachos, welcomed the new students at the ceremony and emphasized the fact that Pinewood is “coming home,” a milestone towards a full integration that was announced in 2019.
Dr. Roxanne Giampapa, Head of Pinewood School and Vice President of the International Division at Anatolia College, addressed students in a welcome speech, stating that “inside the new building lies each child’s bright future” and reminding them that “their Pinewood education is one thing that can never be taken away from them.”
