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.

Our school collaborated with five primary schools from Poland, Italy, Spain and Cyprus and our students learned about the culture of partner countries through art, literature, history and traditions. We exchanged visits and shared our culture and history as well as our teaching practices.

Digital storytelling projects
