Our school won an award for the video “We wore your shoes” (https://drive.google.com/file/d/12hea8MzonBxTkWjFzB-ew2WwH4MlTq8y/view?usp=drive_web ), showing in practice that concepts like respect in diversity and human rights, knowledge acquisition and empathy for disabled people and sports are high in our education priorities. We achieved that through the creation of a video (with 3-minute duration) on the topic of the teaching of Paralympic sports in 4 teaching sessions, in the subject of Physical Education, in the last school year. The video editing was done by the B’ class student Georgios Tsolakis and we warmly thank him for his creation.
