Students from Greece visiting the school

On the morning of the 10th April, Middle 1 and 2 pupils will spend the morning with pupils from the 1st Gymnasium of Melissia in Athens, Greece. This visit is part of a joint cultural project between our two schools focusing on Greek and Italian culture, history and traditions. The pupils will discuss Greek literature, specifically “Erotokritos & Aretousa” by Vincentzos Kornaros and its similarities and contrasts to William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. They will explore common themes in music and take part in a Venetian mask workshop, working together to learn about the history and traditions behind traditional mask making which is common to both Italian and Greek culture.
