NOTE: Students do not attend school on Curriculum Days
Here at Athena, we love to get out into the world to see what we are learning about first hand and gain practical experience where possible. We also go on many sport excursions throughout the year as well as excursions to reward high student production. This brings education to life and makes it more enjoyable for all concerned.
