3rd GYMNASIO OF NAOUSSA in Greece celebrates the International Day of Persons with Disabilities

On 4th December 2017, in the framework of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, 15 students of our school visited the School of Special Professional Education and Training of Naoussa, and took part in an experiential workshop with the title “All different, all equal”.

The students introduced themselves in verbal or non-verbal ways. They worked in groups and made up stories using random words. The moral of these stories:

1.      All things should be done in order, and

2.     should be enriched with various thoughts.

3.     In this way, even the most ordinary day can become special with the power of imagination.

4.     Completing the first moral, it is beneficial to enjoy the present without haste or fear for the future.

All the above, were the result of spontaneous exchange of ideas without any teachers’ intervention. The students enjoyed the activities and it was a great experience for them.

This experience was different and unique. In that room, we were all different but so similar at the same time. We should see difference as an open door to learn from each other and not as a barrier”.

“Our visit to this different school was interesting, amusing and made us think about the way we treat these people. We were a little reserved at the beginning, but then we got to know the children better and made new friends. We realized that we are different but similar at the same time and we made interesting discussions and shared common activities”

Penelope

 

“It was a different experience. We learnt that we can cooperate with different people with different views which, after all, are not an obstacle.”
