  • Astérix l'Européen Open or Close

    This year, classes S1-S3 shall dive into the world of comic books and in particular into the universe of Astérix le Gaulois, the Francophone Belgian series of comic books, written by René Goscinny and illustrated by Alberto Uderzo.

    Astérix, Obélix and Idéfix travel all over Europe, defying the Romans, and along with them we get to visit different countries and become acquainted with their customs, traditions, architectural styles and attires.

    The pupils will be asked to create a series of illustrations, starring Astérix and his friends dressed in a variety of clothes, depending on the country they have chosen to study. They shall use colors, the art of collage or any other means they choose, to depict their idea of Astérix l'Européen.

    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.

  • Women in science Open or Close

    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.

Some examples of such scientists are Rosalind Elsie Franklin (DNA structure), Bell Burnell (astronomer) and many more in the past but also recent years. 

    The target of this project is to enhance the European identity of the students and also for them to become aware of the presence and work of female scientists in different fields. The content of the book will be formed by the students with the guidance of their teacher.

  • The Performance Open or Close

    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.

    Being a multicultural school, the School of European Education of Heraklion, wishes to bring out the fact that unity and common ground can emerge from the different, as well as that the aforementioned communication between our world and the ancient one can lead to better understanding of the latter. To this end, a reading action of the book Α, τα ωραία θέατρα by Manolis Vrahnakis is planned to take place at school. The book is written for 12-year-old children and it has been translated in English with the title The Performance. It was a product of the Eurolog project (how can knowledge of the ancient world help to answer questions in the present and future), 2013, supported by the “EU Culture Programme”.
