Educational Program: “Adopt a Ship”

On Monday, November 18, 2019, the award ceremony for the “Adopt a Ship” educational program was held at the Piraeus Maritime Club.  The program was first implemented in Greece in the previous academic year.


Through this program, students come into contact with the seafarers and their life aboard vessels. As the same they acquire a great deal of knowledge in various disciplines, such as Geography, Physics and Mathematics.


During academic year 2018-2019, students in Athens College Elementary School’s 5th grade section 5β participated in the program, and it was they who were awarded.  Their classroom teacher, Mr. Chrysostomos Lefteratos, received the award on their behalf.



This academic year, our School is participating in “Adopt a Ship” by implementing a cross-curricular educational program across three Elementary School levels, those of 4th, 5th and 6th grades
