1 Although our European project «Artemotion Xpress in Europe» was completed at the end of February, the memory is still very strong and our pupils do not forget to apply Art to every opportunity in their school life and express themselves and their emotions.
So, in our school we celebrated the anniversary of 25 March 1821, which for us the Greeks is a double celebration. This day is a day of honor to the heroes of the Greek Revolution of 1821, as well as the religious anniversary of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary.
The event was attended by parents and friends of our school, who applauded our pupils, who once again did their best and impressed us.
Art and Emotion were apparent as videos were presented dedicated to the Revolution of 1821, poems and songs were heard by our pupils who played various musical instruments and sang with the accompaniment of musician Marilena Pappa and the wonderful voice of Athena Chioti. We also watched short theatrical plays and dances, and our pupils became actors for a while and played the «pupils of hidden school» or famous Greek fighters!
The celebration was organized by Marilena Pappa, Sofia Tzilakou, Theodora Economou and Mr. Giorgos Sotiriou. Participants were Athina Chioti, Gianna Giota, Rita Papatsani and Zacharenia Markesini.
It was a great event and it is worth a great thumbs up to our lovely pupils!!
2. Easter is approaching and our pupils, along with their teachers, Mrs. Maria and Mr. Andreas made Easter cookies, delicious and gorgeous.
In addition, Mrs. Maria with our social worker Mrs. Angeliki and the pupils of the class, painted the eggs red or colorful and made unique baskets to put in all their Easter delicacies and take them home. So we will see that the art is unfolding once again through the dough, the handmade constructions, the colors.
And let’s not forget that: «Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.» Edgar Degas, French painter and sculptor, 1834-1917.
