Plastic bottle cap: a useful offer

On 3rd December, the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, we took a voluntary initiative for the organized development of a plastic cap collection network. The purpose of the action is to develop and activate recycling consciousness, voluntary spirit and social awareness, for the benefit of children with disabilities and financial assistance for the purchase of technical infrastructure of the local institution “MERIMNA”. We handed out a lot of plastic caps that had been collected since the beginning of the school year for this social purpose, since we had understood the principles, values ​​and importance of respecting the diversity of people with disabilities, as well as the equal rights they deserve. This way, we served Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities, Goal 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions, Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals and Goal 4: Quality Education.

Let’s Do It Greece!

We celebrated the World Cleanup Day (15th September), a day when over 100 countries and millions of volunteers unite for one goal: to take the first step towards trash free world. As part of this civil movement to make world a cleaner place, our school took part in this year's “Let's Do It, Greece” campaign cleaning the school courtyard. Thus, on Friday, September 14, students cleared their own space, giving their own environmental message to reduce the garbage in the natural environment so close or far away from us. So, we served Goal 15: Life on Land, Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production and Goal 4: Quality Education.

Puberty and Hormones: a scientific matter

As teenagers our students attended the documentary "Science for Adolescence" in the Piraeus Bank Institute, a fact that gave them the opportunity to engage in an interactive and fruitful discussion and to rearrange their teenage priorities. This way they learned that every gender difference is mainly based on biological background and must be accepted. So, we enthusiastically served Goal 3: Good Health and Well-Being, Goal 5: Gender Equality, Goal 4: Quality Education and Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals.

“A hidden treasure hunt” in the history of peace

The Erasmus students took part in an educational action of the Silversmithing Museum, concerning the multicultural history of our city, since people who live together create a common civilization. Through a digital application and using tablets, our students searched for information hidden in the museums and monuments of the archaeological site of "Itch Kale” and revealed hidden myths and stories of the communities that co-existed for years. The action served Goal 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions, as well as Goal 4: Quality Education and Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals.

Together for Teenage Health

In the beginning of November, we had the honor of attending an interesting seminar organized by the Professor of the Pathological Clinic at the University Hospital of Ioannina,concerning the subject “Health in the Teen Age”. The purpose of the seminar was to educate students to better prevent and respond to possible physical and social risks that they may encounter both in school and in society. As we know, good health is a prerequisite for the development and progress of a society, so we must ensure that we are healthy and well mature through the knowledge of the necessary prevention and health programs. With this seminar we served Goal 3: Good Health and Well-Being, Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals and Goal 4: Quality Education.

The realization of our own “vertical forest” project: work in progress

The “ vertical forest”  designed by Stefano Boeri architects’ studio is a design of urban reforestation. It aims at an interaction between domestic  environment and nature, taking advantage of verticality while controlling urban growth. The forest, made up of two towers, houses thousands of trees and plants. Thanks to this variety of species , a microclimate is able to promote: birds and insect colonization, particles filtration, acoustic insulation.
As regards water, there is a centralized system of drip irrigation. Water comes from the building grey water or groundwater.Together with the teacher Mrs Pampallona, we are carrying out a very interesting project aiming at the realization of a “vertical forest”. We are collaborating with the external expert and young architect, Mrs Elena Bruno for the success of the initiative.
The first pratical action has been the search for planimetries. The second phase involved the students in getting waste materials useful to the fulfiment of the project.All along the school year we will carry out the next steps for the realization of our own “vertical forest” project.
