Activity of the Chemistry Club

We deeply thank Professor Yianni Bourmpakis from Swanson School of EngineeringUniversity of Pittsburgh, for the opportunity he gave to the Chemistry Club students of Evangeliki Model High School of Smyrna to participate in this activity! Within the framework of this activity, our students watched videos produced by university students in the field of Chemical Engineering and assessed them according to certain criteria. Our students participated with enthusiasm and watched with great interest the videos that had to do with the subjects of chemical kinetics and the design of reactors, in fields like electrochemical hydrogen production and biodiesel production.

Within the framework of the same activity, it was our pleasure to collaborate, even indirectly, with Dr. Ioannis Kerkines and his students from ACS Athens (American Community Schools)! We hope we collaborate again soon!

CanSat in Greece is a Panhellenic space competition realized by the non-governmental organisation SPIN – Space Innovation, under the coordination of ESERO (European Space Education Resource Office) GREECE. The competition lasts 8 months starting at its announcement and it has got two categories, one for high school students and one for university students. The winning team participates in the European competition CanSats in Europe, organized by the European Space Agency (ESA).

The participants have to design and construct an educational satellite, in the shape of a can, which realizes a space mission that they choose. The satellite is launched at 1 kilometre inside a rocket created by SPIN and then it is released from the rocket. After its release, the satellite lands with safety with the use of a parachute, carrying out the mission that the team has selected.

Model teaching in Religious Education

On the 11th April 2024, within the framework of the subject of Religious Education, we received in the ceremony hall of our school a group of 30 students from the Department of Theology, School of Theology, NKUA, so that they would attend model teaching in two lessons.

The model lessons were carried out by the Religious Education teacher Mr. Sotirios Kollias, who taught the thematic units “Forgiveness as transcendence in Christianism” and “The Christian community in a multicultural world”, with the collaboration of the B2 and B4 group students.

The students were divided from the beginning of the lesson in 5 groups and were asked to work in these groups and express their opinion about the topics under study.

The teaching units were developed in four stages, starting from the element of Experiencing, taking into consideration students’ experiences on these topics.

The process continued with Conceptualising, during which the teacher projected relevant pictures and videos on the whiteboard that the students were asked to comment on. In this stage the bridging with the theological thought was gradually realized.

The next stage was Analysing through a deep insight in the texts of the New Testament and in modern texts, on which the students worked in groups in order to identify concepts and answer specific questions of the worksheet.

In the stage of Implementing, the students were asked to participate in group activities, which they then presented in the class plenary.

In the end, in order to consolidate the thematic unit, the students were asked to take a personal stance justifying their opinion in comparison with the statements read by the teacher.

After the end of the two lessons, Mr. Kollias presented and analysed to the university students the stages of the lessons and answered their questions.

8-12 April 2024: Spanish teachers’ job shadowing in Evangeliki Model High School of Smyrna

During the period 8 to 12 April 2024, two teachers, one of English and one of Technology, from the Institut Sabadell in Spain, visited our school for job shadowing in the framework of an Erasmus+ project.

The Spanish teachers attended classes as well as the Club of Cinematic Education, had meetings and talks with the school Administration and teachers and were informed about the national curriculum, the Clubs, the extra-curricular activities as well as the way of administration and function of the school and of the Greek education system as a whole. Moreover, they presented the function of their own school to our school teachers and exchanged ideas and good practices.

After a very interesting and constructive week together, we waved them goodbye and both sides hope for a future collaboration in the framework of Erasmus+ projects.

Job shadowing and visit of the cinematographer Mr. Grigorios Stavropoulos in the Club of Cinematic Education

On Tuesday 9 April 2024 visited the Club of Cinematic Education two teachers from Institut Sabadell in Spain, within the framework of an Erasmus+ project job shadowing, which they realise in Evangeliki Model High School of Smyrna during the period 8-12 April 2024.

In the beginning of the meeting, the B’ class students presented their two-year work in the Club, which included introduction to the theory and practice of cinematic techniques, script-writing, the creation of a fiction short film and its submission to a student competition of short films.

Afterwards, the A’ class students presented the script they are working on this period, talked about the inspiration of the central concept and the messages the short film they want to create in the following school year aims to put across.

Since on that day we had the happiness and honour to have with us the cinematographer Mr. Grigorios Stavropoulos, Mr. Stavropoulos talked with the Club members and provided them with valuable feedback on their works. Then, he talked about the way and the techniques of old film restoration, fact that helped us travel in the cinema history, not only of our country but also of the whole Europe. With Mr. Stavropoulos we arranged to meet again in the following school year.

The Spanish teachers talked with the students, asked questions about the process of their works, then discussed with Mr. Stavropoulos about issues concerning the European cinema and at the end of the meeting, they left really satisfied from that constructive session.
