Refugee Day at 3rd Gimnasio of Naoussa

The pupils of the 3rd Gymnasio of Naoussa took part in a variety of activities and events commemorating the 100 years since the genocide of the Greek people of Efxinos Pontos (the Black Sea).

 

On 19 May – day selected by the Greek parliament to commemorate the tragedy – the pupils watched a documentary at Efxinos Club of Naoussa. The documentary was about a music band in the city of kerassounda (GIresun). Only one of the members of the band managed to survive, took refuge in Greece and gave an account of the hardships and suffering they experienced.

 

On 23 May, all the pupils of our school attended a presentation about the genocide prepared by Mrs. Savvatopoulou and watched the documentary “1922 The Greek Genocide” by National Geographic.

 

The pupils of Erasmus team are working on the translation and English subtitles of a documentary created by pupils of previous years, with the title “I lost my country. WHY?”.  Once it is ready we will share it with our partners.

Europe Day at 3rd Gimnasio of Naoussa

We  used the material sent by the European Committee (Greek department) to play games about the capital cities of the European countries and their historical monuments.

In order to foster better understanding and improve pupils’ knowledge of the European Union Mrs. Anna Savvatopoulou, teacher of Greek language and literature, integrated the same material sent by the European Committee (Greek department) in her Greek language lessons. She, also, have worked on:

THE EUROPEAN  UNION : THE IDEA, THE PURPOSES, THE PEOPLE

During a 6-hour greek language course, we studied texts written in 2000-2006   on:

  1. a) the idea of a united  but diverse- in geography and culture- union
  2. b) the fear of losing national identity and language
  3. c) the symbols on the coins of  euro
  4. d) the European mobility activities for young people in education and work
  5. e) the 14.000.000 migrants and their offer in the economic life but yet their lack of political and professional rights
  6. f) the human rights such as  the freedom of speech, women’s rights, the right to work and the protection of environment.

 

Finally the students created a simple guiding text (200-300 words) named:  “Τhe European union: what it is and what it does”   based on new booklets and information sent to our school for our participation to the programme of Erasmus+.

Thus, students came in contact with new ideas on Europe and participated very well

in the activities, though the texts of their book were quite demanding.

Erasmus + Teachers Workshop in Spain

Last Thursday, our Spanish school took part  in a vocational teacher workshop in which they shared their “good practices” with many other schools in the region in relation to the inclusion of the vocational training of pupils. This is a significant part of our Erasmus + project.
