A very useful action took place thanks to the Hellenic Rescue Team (EMAK), in order to inform our Erasmus students about its work in cases of emergency, such as fire, earthquake, storms etc. The administration and staff of the Fire Department of Ioannina informed us about the hard work of firefighters – rescuers and about the methods and tools they use, while our students had the chance to participate in the simulation of such circumstances in school, according to Goal 4: Quality Education and Goal17: Partnerships for the Goals!
Our Erasmus students combined their knowledge about tradition with their cooking skills and experienced the process of bread production through practice in our school unit. "Wheat & Bread" are valuable ingredients, basic even for the poorest families, characterize the Mediterranean diet and go back to ancient times. So, we all got engaged in various natural raw materials, got acquainted with traditional techniques and created tasty bakery products, in a mood full of educational messages and joy of experience. All of our school mates and teachers later tasted them and congratulated us for our initiative, in the context of Goal 2: Zero Hunger and Goal 4: Quality Education!

Sports days indoors or outdoors school are favourite days for students of all grades. This special day, we organized a sports event for our Erasmus+ students presenting new sports to them, like hockey for example, which is not very common in Greece. They eagerly took part in the competitive sporting activity and practically served Goal 3: Health and Well-Being, in a teamwork that tried to improve their physical exercise and form, while getting them to know that there are no boundaries in the sports spirit worldwide.

The Greek Recycling Organization decided to install a retailer for the recycling of aluminum, plastic bottles and bottles in the yard of the municipal Nursing Home for the Elderly. We all supported the operation of this program by collecting plastic bottles throughout the school year and offered them, in order to contribute to the protection of the environment and to the strengthening of the operation of the Foundation, as the revenue from this facility will be available for the reinforcement of the Nursing Home for the Elderly. Thus, we served Goal 12: Responsible Production and Consumption, Goal 13: Climate Action, Goal 4: Quality Education and Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals.
Road safety is a great subject in which to engage student for their life benefit. We tried to approach it, in order to get a lot from studying and campaigning for road safety, because it is an issue they can understand and that affects them. So, our students have designed and painted brochures about road safety and, then, since road safety skills are best learnt in the real traffic environment, with the help of the Traffic Police and their teachers, they distributed the brochures to the passing drivers outside our school.
In order to raise awareness of the issues of right road behavior and especially of the drivers’ obligations, we served Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities, Goal 4: Quality Education and Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals, while becoming aware of how students can manage their own safety and become safer road users.
