Information Regarding 2nd Field Trip (December 12, 2017)

Following a decision of the Faculty Association, the second field trip, chaperoned by the students’ teachers, is scheduled to be held on Tuesday, December 12th, 2017.  

The 7th grade field trip will revolve around civic and charity related themes.  Specifically,
section α1 students, will visit the “Pammakaristos” Foundation
section α2 students will visit the Lyreio Children’s Foundation “Agioi Anargyroi”
section α3 students will visit Celebral Palsy Greece
section α4 students will visit “Skepi Pronoias” Nursing Home
section α5 students will visit the School for the Deaf
section α6 students will visit the National Model Children’s Center
section α7 students will visit the Ecclesiastical Orphanage of Vouliagmeni

The 8th grade field trip (sections β1 to β8) will take students to Vempo Theater to see a performance of “4 minutes 12 seconds,” which was a runner up (2nd place) for the Verity Bargate Award (competition for best English play). 
In a world where smartphones are ubiquitous, this deeply provocative and topical drama throws light on the sorts of insidious opportunities new technology offers – where nothing dies online, except reputation.
A fast paced performance filled with suspense, humor and lots of twists.  This show serves overall pedagogical objectives and, in particular, the teaching objectives of the 8th grade Modern Greek Language curriculum (unit 6) on media and the internet.

The 9th grade field trip will take students to a museum.  Students in sections γ1, γ3, γ6 and γ7 will visit the National Historical Museum (Old Parliament Building, 13 Stadiou Street, Athens), whilst students in sections γ2, γ4, and γ5 will visit the Herakleidon Science, Art & Mathematics Museum (16 Herakleidon & 37 Ag. Pavlou Streets, Thissio)
