For the second consecutive year, the Photography Director Mr. Panagiotis Kleidaras visited the Clubs of Cinematic Education of our school and talked to our students.
In an experiential and interactive way, our guest took our Clubs’ students on a journey in the universe of the moving image through his own journey in the world of the 7th art. Highlighting the social and humanitarian approach of various themes through the films, he offered us a sensitive perspective in the approach of each story that is projected on the big screen, through the passion, lyricism and poetic mood that should characterize the cinematographer but also through the philosophy he/she adopts.
Mr. Kleidaras showed to us photographs that express the way in which the photographer perceives the world and insisted on the personal and unique perspective of the artist; he also showed us videos that unite the sensitive world of the protagonists with their spectators.
The teachers in charge of the Clubs Mrs. Eirini Arnaouti and Mr. Sotirios Kollias deeply thank Mr. Kleidaras that offered inspiration to our students and opened new paths for useful thinking and creative mood.

In the 1st place of the category “Best Paralympic Videos of Secondary & High Schools”, along with Anavryta Model Secondary School, was awarded a prize to our school, on Thursday 8 February 2024, in the award ceremony for the schools of primary and secondary education that participated in the Paralympic festival “Par-OLYMPIA” and took part in the competition “School Sports and Inclusion”. More than 100 schools from the whole Greece participated in the Festival of Paralympic Sports that took place on the 3rd October 2023 in the framework of the European programme Par-OLYMPIA, and then participated in the competitions of Paralympic Video, Paralympic Painting/Poster and Paralympic Knowledge.
The award ceremony was held in the Ministry of Education, Religious Affairs and Sports, with the collaboration of the Hellenic Paralympic Committee, in the presence of students from the award-winning schools from all over Greece.
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.

The programme was realized by the exceptional education group of the Pediatrician Ms. Dimitra Papadimitriou. The group consisted of doctors and health visitors. The aim of the programme is to raise awareness and sensitize young people about the importance of a healthy diet and to encourage young people to exercise on a daily basis.

The Physical Education teachers,
Congratulations to our school EOES team, who, in the second stage of the Panhellenic competition, held on 27-28/1, got the 1st place in Physics and the 6th place in total. Our team consisted of B’ class students Dimitrios Dalamagkas, Dimitra Kokkali and Despoina Partheniou.
EOES (European Olympiad of Experimental Science) is organized by the Panhellenic Laboratory Centres of Natural Sciences and it is special because it is laboratory-based, interdisciplinary (biology, physics, chemistry) and collaborative. In contrast to other written competitions, every school participates with a 3-member team of students. Students, in order to achieve their goal, have to collaborate.
In the second stage participated 36 schools from the whole country, who were distinguished on the local level of the competition.
We wish all the best to the 2 first schools that will represent our country in the final stage of the competition!

Within the framework of the Evangeliki Model High School of Smyrna’s activity “Let’s go to the theatre!”, on Sunday 28 January 2023 we attended the famous play of Edmond Rostand “Syrano” in Alkyonis Theatre. The romantic drama of Edmond Rostand written in verse was directed by Giorgos Nanouris, accompanied by live music and songs, balancing between humour and emotion. The central hero, the non-conformist knight and poet Syrano de Bergerac (Michalis Sarantis), is in love with Roxanne (Lena Papaligoura). In reality, Syrano, even though he faces it with confidence and dynamism, is a victim of bullying, as we would say today, because of a special feature he has. This feature makes everybody oversee the deeper parts of himself, which means judge him from his appearance – something which is common nowadays.
We feel really happy to see the students that participate in this activity feel touched by and think over the messages of classical plays – masterpieces of international literature and their exceptional presentations on stage.
On Monday 15/1/2024 in Athens Music Hall took place the award ceremony of the students of the Districts of Attica and Central Greece, who got a distinction in the Panhellenic Exams 2023.

The ceremony was held in the presence of the Minister of Education Mr. Kyriakos Pierrakakis, the CEO of Eurobank Mr. Fokionas Karavias, University Deans, representatives of the District of Attica, etc.

Evangeliki School is a historical school that supports the collective memory of Asia Minor Greeks and at the same time it is a Model School that supports excellence, creativity and innovation. We, as educators, feel very proud both for our student, who brought us in this 1st place, and for you all, our dear children! I wish you from the depth of my heart a successful career”.
