One of the most fundamental goals of our school is to enable students to utilize their leisure time fruitfully. We aim at fostering a flexible and pleasant school environment with broad horizons, so that both kids and teachers can feel at ease and interact creatively. Our wish is that the kids who attend "Ellinogermaniki Agogi" don't only turn into able students who can achieve school success, but also become responsible adults who will be able to cooperate in harmony with each other and contribute effectively to their social and family environment. Building up social skills and adopting a positive attitude towards learning are vital to the above aim, perhaps even more so than the mere acquisition of knowledge.
Following this rationale, every year we plan and organize a program of afternoon activities, which is an extension of the daily curriculum and offers plenty of opportunities for the pupils to take initiatives and develop their creativity, their autonomy, their self-expression and their emotional intelligence; in other words, it offers them the opportunities to reinforce those skills and functions which are necessary for their understanding of the world.
Life at school cannot and should not be "dry". It is our duty to create the appropriate conditions, so that children can cultivate their talents, broaden their interests, test their abilities and take full advantage of their free time.
