Our school teacher during the school year 2015-2016 Mrs. Antigoni Laskaridou made a presentation entitled “Student Competition of Historical Documentary” in the 4th Panhellenic Conference “Education in the 21st century: School and Culture” held in Athens College on 10-12/05/2019 (Link to the conference proceedings: http://www.ekedisy.gr/praktika-4ou-synedrioy/).
In her presentation she presented the historical documentary creation entitled “The grocer’s daughter… and an international recipe” made by the students of the A’ Class elective module of “Greek and European Civilization” of the school year 2015-16 that she was teaching.
The documentary was a critical approach of an important personality of the Modern European History, the Prime Minister of Great Britain Margaret Thatcher. The documentary included the interview of the Emeritus Professor in History of the NKUA Thanos Veremis. The objective of this creation was a combination of historical research and cinematic art.
The school students Athanasopoulou Vera, Karaousou Marina, Kolio Eleni, Kyriakidis Kyriakos, Kotis Georgios, Magnisalis Aggelos, Mavromichalis Stavros, Peraki Eirini and Tsekouras Georgios were the team members who worked on this innovative activity and won the 4th place, i.e. a distinction in the 3rd Panhellenic Pupil and Student Competition in Historical Documentary.
Eugenides Foundation offered the technical support for the documentary creation.
Congratulations to the ex-school students of Evangeliki Model High School of Smyrna and current university students!
