Cooking traditional Greek dishes.

3rd Junior High School, Katerini

    On Spring's Eve we gathered at the seaside tavern "Psarokokkalo" in Gritsa, students, teachers and parents to cook, to talk and present the activities of the project done so far. The students cooked traditional Greek dishes with the guidance of the head chef of the tavern, Mr. Lambros. They prepared stuffed squid, moussaka, grilled sardines, mussel pilafi (i.e. mussel risotto) and various Greek salads. After cooking the students served the dishes. Everything was really delicious and the experience was unforgettable! 

    After that the teachers presented to the parents the TwinSpace and the blog of the project and discussed details of the parents' more active involvement in the project. At the end of the evening the students danced to rhythms of Greek music played by our music teacher, Ms. Akrida. It was a night to remember!

The Greek Linguistic Heritage

3rd Junior High School of Katerini

October and November were the months of our Language heritage. The objectives of these months' meetings were:

        To get to know the history of the Greek language.
        To perceive its continuity in the process of time and its incessant course through the centuries (3000 years).
        To realise the importance of Greek language for the modern spoken languages of Latin origin.
        To wake up to the word the richness of the Greek language and enrich their vocabulary.
        To create activities of interaction with the Basque students based on their search on Greek language.

There was reference to the Basque MEPs (Members of the European Parliament) who introduced an initiative to the European Commission to develop a program according to which Ancient Greek will be taught to all the grades of the Obligatory Education in all the countries-members, so that the Greek language will become the common language of the cultured Europeans. We discussed on this initiative and the thoughts it provoked.

Then we read Zolotas' text which was pronounced in the 50s, in the frame of the meetings of the 
World Bank. Xenophon Zolotas (former Prime Minister) was then the director of the Bank of Greece and his two speeches are considered to be historic and notable because they entirely contained terms of Greek origin, even though they were written in English. You can see an example below:

We learnt many new facts about our linguistic heritage and we enjoyed this trip into our language very much.

We would like to share some of this information with you. For this reason we have created the following Padlets.

Our school welcomes carnivals and as it is part of our heritage and our identity mark, we have prepared a report to share it with all of you.
It is a discovery of our carnivals and a way to show our Greek partners how we enjoy these days.
Smile, laughter, joy and happiness will accompany us these days. Carnival is illusion, costumes, colours, paintings, masks, dances, songs, and a lot of fun.

Here you can see some videos about it.
