A group of graduates from the Socrates-Demosthenes School of the Hellenic Community of Greater Montreal participated in the annual educational trip to Greece for the sixth year in a row. From June 17 to 25, they experienced unique moments, explored the land of their ancestors and enjoyed the unique beauty of Greece. Below you will find pictures of our students’ extraordinary educational experience and magical memories that will last a lifetime.
All of this started, of course, with a great start.
The first leg of the trip was Monemvasia, where dedicated tour guides took our graduates to visit many of the historic sites in the area. But, first of all, we take strength with a first swim in the sea so blue and a delicious meal afterwards.
Our young tourists were fascinated by the old walls and their extraordinary past, which they later expressed artistically.
The traditional photo in front of the isthmus is unavoidable.
Our travelers have also become sailors, and even captains, for a day.
Their cruise took them to a private island where they could have a blast in the crystal clear water of a bay.
There have also been hot days in Mycenae where archaeological visits …
… were invariably interspersed with refreshing beach moments.
Our travelers spent two days on the archaeological site of Olympia, where they were impressed by the Olympic spirit by participating among other things in energetic races.

They have, of course, visited the site of the city behind the famous Games, and its interesting museum.
All these adventures could only end at the hotel pool.
The last part of their trip took them to a hotel in Glyfada, near the beach. Students and teachers, accompanied by a Greek guide, have made various educational excursions:
They visited the cave of Kastania, dating from the Jurassic era.
They alternately tested the incredible acoustics of the theater of Epidaurus.
They obviously visited Athens and its phenomenal national archaeological museum.
Finally, with a fascinating guide, they paid tribute to the Acropolis, where it all began.
