The 5th Grade students of Primary Cycle of School of European Education of Heraklion participated in an activity of Urban Environmental Education in the framework of the International Day of Outdoor Education as the 2nd November has been set. Specifically the teacher of the S.E.E. Heraklion Mr. Nikos Kokolakis has organized a  “soundwalk” session activity in order the students to observe the sound ecosystem of the Heraklion city. The students had the chance to record the soundscape of an urban beach near to school. The “soundwalk” took place on the route from the school to “Karavola” beach, which is 10 minutes from the school.

The students recorded their sound observations on paper and then they had a brief discussion in a circle on the beach where we “shared” the sounds we had heard earlier on. Then, they split into groups and became sound explorers across the length of the beach. They tried to record the same sounds we discovered earlier on with the help of the special equipment that the music teacher of the school Mr. Nikos Kokolakis had (recording device with a microphone, a hydrophone, and a geophone). All the students had the opportunity to experiment with the equipment.

In class the students drafted a short report recounting their experience. Here are just a few words from what they wrote:

"..a gurgling sound escaped from the tunnel, and a low, deep moaning roamed from the structure..", "..we threw stones around the geophone and listened to the noise they made, it was really satisfying..", "..my team spotted a white Herron! We went to hear it, but it flew away..", "..I heard a Herron, the waves crushing, footsteps, the cars and bikes..", "..we could hear the differences between the sounds of the city and the sounds of the nature..", "..we heard the sounds of strong wind blowing, the waves of the Ocean, and vehicles passing through..", "..I heard a very creepy deep voice coming out of the weird tunnel next to the big yellow rocks..", "..me and my friends collected 312 pieces of glass to clean the beach..", "..he put the hydrophone in the water and connected the wire to the recorder, which was already plugged to the headphones and could listen closely to the ocean..", "..the way back was quicker because we had less stops..", "..on the way back we could talk to each other..", "..for me the trip was very nice! It shows that you don't need money to have fun..", "..I really enjoyed the field trip and I think it was a once in a lifetime experience..", "..I slipped from a rock, and hurt myself, but anyway the trip was fun..", "..all in all I think we had a nice day.."

  • The English-speaking section of the Primary Cycle of the School of European Education of Heraklion visited the Urban Vegetable Garden in Agios Ioannis-Heraklion (Crete), in the context of an educational fieldtrip, with the aim of participating in the planting process and familiarization with organic farming.

    After the welcome and a short introduction to the volunteers and the expert agronomist who take care of the Vegetable Garden every day, the students, with the help of Vicky, Kostas and Despina, planted lettuce, cabbage, broccoli and leeks. Babis Symeonidis, member of the “Greenpeace Heraklion”, under the shade of the olive tree, discussed with the students the need to protect the ecosystem from the use of plastic and other human interventions. Afterwards, the students participated in a workshop to create nurseries in paper and fabric containers.

    The vegetable garden was filled with happy faces. The students were enthralled with the collection of vegetables, fruits and flowers grown within this space. They got to know all trees and plants, they tasted fresh, seasonal fruit straight from the farm and played carefree having fun in a natural, urban and human-friendly environment.

    We were particularly impressed by the fact that these multicultural students were informed and aware of issues concerning the environment and its protection, as well as issues of solidarity. They behaved with courtesy and respect in this first visit to the Municipal Vegetable Garden of Agios Ioannis, something which is certainly an optimistic message in the complex and multi-challenging everyday life. After all, this generation with maturity recognizes the right choices for protecting the natural environment. Congratulations to their parents and teachers!

  • 2019-2021: "...E QUINDI USCIMMO A RIVEDER LE STELLE"

    The central idea of the project aims to fight the lack of scientific-mathematical skills in children between 9 and 12 years, through the approach to the study of astronomy and observation of the sky. The direct observation of celestial phenomena, the collection of data and the related analysis in order to formulate hypotheses to be verified on the field will all be elements that will bring pupils very close to the scientific method and the history of scientific discoveries.

  • During the school year 2021-2022, the students of the geography class S4 together with their teacher Dimitra Tsionou will work to create an interactive e-book.

  • Different languages do not separate people, rather people from different countries have something in common as far as communication is concerned: they can all speak the language of the heart. Then again, ancient civilizations and in particular the ancient Greek civilization can also “communicate” with our era - and vice versa - even more directly and successfully through theater, with its undisputed edifying value highlighted by the Ancient Greeks.

  • Pollution and strays – we can make a difference!

    Our team is comprised of students aged 11 to 18 years old and three main teachers. Our main aim is to raise awareness about stray animals and pollution. The students have created art projects, recycling centres, and games to educate younger children. They have also participated in projects highlighting the issues both stray animals and our environment face. Every week, a group of students sets out to clean up rubbish on the school grounds and in the surrounding area. One of our biggest projects was a beach clean-up, during which the students collected 11 bin bags full of rubbish from Ammoudara Beach! We are committed to continuing our learning, helping others and raising awareness in the hope of a sustainable future!
