Re: Supplementary / Remedial Tutorials (PDS)
academic year 2018-2019

Dear Parents,

In order to best organize activities for the upcoming academic year, we are sending you the Supplementary / Remedial Tutorials Program (PDS) that will be offered during academic year 2018 – 2019, aimed at providing academic support to our students.  PDS is offered at no additional cost to parents.  However, it should be emphasized that sections are created only if a sufficient number of students enroll.

Supplementary / Remedial Tutorials for Psychico College’s General High School will begin on Tuesday, September 18, 2018. Classes will meet every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, after the end of the normal school day.  In order to prepare the Supplementary / Remedial Tutorials program, we request that you complete the Participation Form that can be found at the end of the attached letter (in Greek) and submit to the High School Secretariat (Office 140) in person or send it by fax to 210-67`4942 no later than Monday, June 25, 2018. 

Please note that students who are registered in the 2018-2019 HAEF school bus transportation system (to and from School) can use the late afternoon school buses are at no additional charge. Those not enrolled in the HAEF school bus transportation system, or those enrolled to use school bus transportation one-way, will incur an annual fee of 250€ to sign up for the use of this service. If you would like your son/daughter to use the late afternoon school buses, you must communicate with the School’s Transportation Office.

Below is a schedule of the High School General Studies and Concentration subjects that will be offered, as well as sections of Mathematics, Physics, Algorithmic Informatics and Ancient Greek Thinking, as well as Robotic Applications. A brief description of the course content for each follows.

Thank you in advance for your contribution to the success of this program.

COURSES - ACTIVITIES

Mathematical Thinking
The objective of Mathematical Thinking is for students to expand their knowledge of selected Mathematical topics, by going beyond that which is taught in the curriculum.  Additional training in solving mathematical problems leads the way to students’ participation in Mathematical competitions.

Physics Thinking
The objective of Physics Thinking is for students to expand their knowledge in selected Science topics.  The ultimate goal is for students to become familiar with scientific problem solving and to participate in Science competitions.

Algorithmic Thinking and Computer Programming
JAVA programming language is taught in this after-school Club, open to 10th and 11th grade students. JAVA is a high-level programming language that is particularly popular for introducing and gaining a deeper knowledge of object oriented programming.  Its design has been proven to lead to better results than other languages since the program is more flexible, reusable and user-friendly. Students in Algorithmic Thinking can participate in the PanHellenic Informatics Competition, if they so wish.

Ancient Greek Thinking
Ancient Greek Thinking, open to 10th grade students, aims at delving deeper into the study of Ancient Greek language and literature by looking at the timelessness of the Greek language, the logic that governs the syntactic structures of the Ancient Greek language, as well as the “discovery of the spirit” that grew out of Ancient Greek culture. Students will also have an opportunity to prepare for participation in Ancient Greek competitions.
Ancient Greek Thinking, open to 11th grade students, aims to bring students into contact with Ancient Greek texts (originals or translations) and to familiarize them with the art of rhetorical discourse.  Students will also have an opportunity to prepare for participation in Ancient Greek competitions

Robotic Applications & Theory
This after-school activity will help students gain advanced knowledge and skills in informatics.
Students who select this activity will:
- develop and program specific robotic structures to achieve a target
- design integrated applications for robot – human interactions
- design robotic vision applications
- design artificial intelligence applications
- develop interactive machine to machine applications
Working in teams, students will solve specific problems (Project Based Learning). Students who wish to participate in Informatics and Robotics competitions will be able to do so.  All projects will be presented at our School Fair and/or other specialized exhibitions.

Informatics Thinking
The objective of Informatics Thinking is to offer students who are gifted in Informatics and who love it an opportunity to delve further into the field. Students also prepare to take part in the PanHellenic Informatics Competition.
