On February 9th , the anniversary of the death of the great poet Dionysios Solomos, was International Day of the Greek Language. In all campuses of the Socrates-Demosthenes School, the event was celebrated by various activities in each class.
For example, at the Socrates II campus, all school announcements by Radio Feta were broadcast exclusively in Greek. Secondary I students in turn taught the Greek alphabet to their French teacher.
The Grade 6 class did an improvisation contest where students had to speak for a minute in Greek, without the use of French or English.
As for the students in Grade 4, they brainstormed to produce a list of all the benefits that one can have to learn Greek.
It was a different and entertaining day. The students participated with pride, succeeding in establishing an increasingly strong bond between their Hellenic identity and their Canadian reality.
