Participation of our school in Euroscola 2020

The first Euroscola session was realised with the participation of delegations from 21 State-Members of the European Union, i.e. with 486 students and their accompanying teachers. This session, which was also the last with the participation of students from the United Kingdom, took place on 17 January 2020 in the European Parliament building. Students, in the role of Members of the European Parliament, were divided into six committees and discussed current issues concerning the environment and renewable energy sources, safety and human rights, the future of Europe, young people’s problems with alcohol and drugs, migration and youth work. They submitted to the plenary resolutions making proposals on the issues, which were then reviewed by all their colleagues. Eight out of the twenty-four members of the Greek delegation were students of Evangeliki Model High School of Smyrna (Michail Peppas, Dimitrios Tsomokos, Eirini Papadopoulou, Despoina Dipla, Anna Drimi, Charalampos Vergadis, Danae Mpifsa and Pelagia Stamataki). Pelagia Stamataki co-presented the Greek delegation to the plenary and was voted Chairwoman of the Committee working on youth work. The student Danae Mpifsa acted as a journalist who reported on the session. Leader of the Greek delegation was the Greek teacher of our school Kalypso Lazou-Balta.

First place of our school in the local EUSO competition

The Teacher’s Association and the Headmaster congratulate the students Maria Louvoulina, Maria Papageorgiou, Erifyli Prousalidi and Dimitris Emmanouil that in the local EUSO (European Science Olympiad) took the first place.

Our school students were prepared by our school teachers Gerasimos Theodoridis (Biology), Maria Diakonou and Argiro Gerbesioti (Physics), Christodoulos Makedonas (Chemistry), whom, as a Headmaster, I thank for the hours they dedicated and the knowledge they transferred to our students.

More precisely, on Saturday 3/12/2019 the preliminary stage of the local EUSO competition was held in Nea Smyrni Laboratory Centre of Natural Sciences. The EUSO competition, organised by the Panhellenic Laboratory Centre of Natural Sciences, is unique as it combines the following characteristics:

  • It is laboratory-based. Students are tested in the conduct of experiments and the analysis of experimental data in order to draw conclusions.
  • It is interdisciplinary. It is a 3-hour competition, during which students are tested in their laboratorial skills in physics, chemistry and biology.
  • It is collaborative. In contrast to other written competitions, every school participates with a 3-member student team. Students ought to collaborate in order to achieve their goal.

In the local competition participated 4 schools and our High School won the first place among them.

We wish all the best to our High School students and the best possible representation of Evangeliki Model High School of Smyrna in the Panhellenic Competition!

Creation of our school students in the 4th Panhellenic Conference “Education in the 21st century: School and Culture”

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!
