    Many times I asked myself how to make my daily routine at school more interesting, how to get away from the unin-spired (dry) transition of information, which most of the times did not even have recipients. Whatever I tried, my students were always my main concern. In the stereotypical question How would you like your school to be? the answer was more or less the same. Definitely not as it is now!

    Therefore, we must do something to change the situation.

    Step by step, building on the students ideas and demands, we opened the doors of our school, we shared our routine with teachers and students from various European countries, formed friendships, exchanged knowledge and ideas, we became acquainted of new situations, and we kept many things and rejected some others.Watching our team becoming bigger and bigger and noticing the balance between quality and knowledge, we de-cided, despite the difficulties that can derive from any different process, to continue our track towards a school where the students develop critical thinking and imagination, towards a school with open-minded students!

  • The 3rd day was dedicated to the Ancient Agora and the Treasure which is hidden there. Both students and teachers formed mixed groups and tried to discover the treasure strolling around the monu-ments. And the treasure was proved to be sweet.The students kept on walking around the Plaka area and stopped at historical spots where our students, playing the role of tourist guides, offered to our guests valuable historic information. The whole adventure ended with an enjoyable pic-nic under the shade of the trees on Koili odos.

    Water and LiTERATURE

    Our visitors walked to school and the programme started. They were asked to complete a Cultural Knowledge Quiz, where it was revealed how much they knew about us. The programme continued with an event about Water in Literature, where the guests had the opportunity to know Elytis, our Nobel prize poet, and Odysseus, the symbol of the man who fights to the end, till he reaches his goal.Then, the NGO KEAN organised a highly educative and entertaining floor game in our school, the best way to close the day. 1 (23/04/2012) . , nowledge quiz, " ", , , . . .

    It was the first day at school and it started in a different way.The official reception of our guests took place at Palataki, our citys cultural centre, where the representative of the Mayor welcomed them and then they were guided in the small museum and the painter Gizis room.

  • The second day at school was devoted to Sciences. Our students, like young scientists, used the schools labs and made experiments which impressed their guests. They worked on the Water Cycle and depicted their impressions on group paintings.Afterwards, our Norwegian guests made a presenta-tion of a wonderful Norwegian poem on Water and, full of emotions the groups left the school for the Acropolis Museum. The grandeur of the Museum itself along with the inspired guide contributed to another successful day.

    Greece means kefi (fun, joy of life), so the Greek students together with their parents organized a fare-well party which had everything. Plethora of Greek and Mediterranean food, music, dancing, singing and of course last but not least Karaoke. Our guests danced Greek folk dances, had fun with karaoke, and sang traditional Norwegian and Hollander songs. Then, they received their gifts from the principle of the school. The night was a major success; our new friends will have Greece in their hearts forever.
