A “Euroknitter”… what is this?

The students of our school are very happy to participate in such a project. But… what is this project all about?...

The Greek Logo contest.

Every Project must have an official logo created by students . All  partners organized a Logo Contest in their schools.

Logos from each country were displayed without any kind of indication about the creator or the country of origin.

Teachers had to choose three logos among all the logos brought in Italy!!...

Marseille Open: Tsitsipas overcomes Kukushkin to win second career title

Stefanos Tsitsipas clinched his second ATP Tour singles title with a 7-5, 7-6 (5) victory over Kazakhstan's Mikhail Kukushkin at the Marseille Open on Sunday.

Tsitsipas, who reached the Australian Open semifinals last month, battled hard to secure victory over the 31-year-old Kukushkin in a little under two h ours.

"Winning titles is the thing that I am working for. It's the biggest satisfaction and the biggest joy in tennis," Tsitsipas said afterwards

. "There was a lot of stress this week because I knew I had to face some good opponents. I'm happy that I got through that stress and played the game that I was supposed to play.

“Games are so important”

The students of 5th grade starred in a short film with their teacher’s guidance.

Through this film, we are travelling to the magnificent world of games with the simplest and simultaneously the most interesting manner. Pictures, sound and a beautiful text…. But above all, simplicity and purity of inspiration.

Nikos Exarhos,Art teacher and Education Program Manager, talked to them about the art creations inspired by the knitting artwork of Geka Panagiota,which was exhibited at the foyer of Ministry of Education.This 'knitting" was similar to our Erasmus Program,"EUROKNITTERS", a "knitting " of  cultures and relations between the countries that participate in this.

Children ,watched these artworks,understood why and how they were made, discussed about them and as a scam of all these they created a three - part construction which was related to the

" knitting" and the union of the countries that participate in the Erasmus Program.
