Easter Activity 2019



At the initiative of Athens College Elementary School’s Administration and Faculty, and in close cooperation with the Parents’ & Guardians’ Association, a giving activity as a token of solidarity was was planned to celebrate Easter.  Thus, each class “adopted” an institution or foundation that belongs under the umbrella of the “Together for Children” Association.   Our School’s students then collected or made items to give to their chosen cause.

Specifically:

First graders collected books and toys that were sent to the “Human Rights Network”.  Second graders covered needs of the “Love Link” (“Krikos Agapis”) by collecting food and toiletry items.  Third graders made Easter candles and donated them to  to the “Ampelokipoi Children’s Home.”  Fourth grade students made Easter crafts that will be sold at the Easter Bazaar of “Friends of Cerebral Palsy Greece - Open Door.” Fifth grade students took part in  the “No Finish Line” race that was held at the Starvros Niarchos Foundation from April 10th to 14th and, simultaneously, collected books, historical maps and other educational materials that were sent to the 3-grade Elementary School in Psara. Sixth graders collected food and toiletry items for the children hosted at the “Medin” hostels that are part of “The HOME Project.” Additionally, members of the Environmetal and Gardening Club did landscaping work in the garden of the “Ampelokipoi Children’s Home.”  Lastly, the School’s teachers collected food items for the “Hara” Centre for Individuals with Special Needs.
