On May 9th the 2nd Panhellenic Student Conference took place in Karditsa. It is a conference in which students from the city’s schools present any kinds of programs or projects they were involved in during the current school year.
Our school, the 1st EPA.L. of Karditsa, participated in the conference with many presentations, two of which were relevant to the subject of our European Erasmus+ project “Our Intangible Heritage – A Value for the Future”.
The presentations were relevant to three cultural heritage elements of Greece that are also registered as World Heritage Elements by UNESCO. Specifically, the students talked about mastic cultivation (which is traditional in the island of Chios and unique in the world), the ancient art of stone building (found extensively in all parts of Greece) and the island of Spinalonga (which was used from 1903 until 1957 as a place of ‘exile’ for leper patients).
The teachers involved, Mrs Ioanna Koutouva and Mrs Eleni Theodoraki, succeeded in preparing excellent presentations, which the students delivered in the best possible way. All attendants showed great interest in the subject.
The event was published in the school’s Facebook page and the local press.
