February 16th was a special day for the students and the teachers
of the 7th and the 9th Primary Schools of Eleftherio-Kordelio.
It was a day for which we had been preparing for a long time and
we had been looking forward to it, the day on which we would welcome
Literature and one of its most eminent representatives, Mrs. Thetis
The whole work demanded a great preparation beforehand and it
was a project on Literature called "Thetis
Hortiati". It involved reading some of the writer's
books and preparation of questions based on them. All classes
also visited the archaeological site of Vergina because one of
the writer's books describes this place and it is called "In
was also a display of books provided by IANOS,
a big bookstore in our city. A lot of students from the neighbouring
schools visited our school and took part in various activities.
To our surprise
the classroom in which Mrs Hortiati would speak was crowded and
this made both us and the writer really happy.
of almost all classes of our schools following the instructions
of Mr. Papadopoulos and Mrs. Holidou, teachers in our School,
performed one of the writer's tales. The result was amazing.
the writer had a discussion with the children, made new tales
and answered our questions.
really impressed by her humour and her ability to inspire us and
take us to a world of imagination. What we realized that day was
that in order to escape from daily problems and hard reality all
is needed is a book!!!
