5th Primary School of Agrinio
Our school was built in 1931 and was funded by “Papastratos Brothers” and ,that is why, it is also called “Papastrateia Ekpaideutiria”. Our school was completely renovated two years ago and is considered to be a fully-equipped modern Greek school. It is located in the centre of Agrinio next to the»Papastrateios» Municipal Library and the Archaeological Museum of the city.
It caters for boys and girls aged 6-12 and, at present, there are approximately 220 students. In addition to classrooms, the premises include a library, a closed gymnasium which is mainly used in winter months, a computer lab, an English lab, an integration classroom and a music classroom. Also, there is a large field and modern athletic facilities.

Agrinio is the largest city of the prefecture of Aitoloakarnania and has a population of 90,000 residents. It is one of the largest cities of western Greece. Its population has increased significantly during the past few decades and in 1920, when refugees from Asia Minor arrived in the city. This population flow contributed to the development of the city of Agrinio to a commercial and economic center. Its main products are tobacco and olives. The position of the city in Aitoloakarnania is defined by the presence of the river named after the ancient god «Acheloos». The city has also a long history, as it was inhabited since the prehistoric period.
Aitoloakarnania boasts a diverse natural environment, ranging from high mountain ranges to important hydro-biotopes, beautiful lakes and a unique range of flora and fauna. Due to its beautiful and rare natural environment, Aitoloakarnaria is a region of great ecological value and one of the most significant Natural Parks of Greece.
Four classes of our school participate in the programme “Helmepa”. The Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Association, as it is its official name, accepted our applications and sent us material which will help us fulfill our project. Posters, calendars, badges, informative material, DVDs as well as leaflets suggesting ways in order to contribute to the preservation of the environment were sent to us. We will try to help Helmepa’s goal as we believe that the earth is everybody’s home and by protecting it, we take care of our future. More about Helmepa

The 6th year class of our school will take part in the educational programme Oikade funded by the bank of Cyprus. The aim of the programme is to get Greek students across the world into contact offering them knowledge, fun and helping them develop social skills.
Our school belongs to the 47th triad of schools and will cooperate with the Primary School of Alinda in Leros and the 2nd Primary School of Konitsa.
The benefits from the project are numerous. Our students will come into contact with the other students, exchange information and develop a common project. More
