50 YEARS OF MEMORIES, THOUGHTS AND IMAGES, BACK TO THE INNOCENT CHILDHOOD YEARS, YOUTH GONE BY, REACHING ADULTHOOD...
5th Primary School of Korydallos
The purpose of this activity was the compilation and publishing of a book/album on the history of the 5th Elementary School of Korydallos. Through this process, the programme aimed at strengthening pupils’ personality (by developing self-esteem and self-confidence), cultivating the spirit of cooperation, promoting critical thinking, activating creativity, taking initiatives and making decisions about solving problems, linking the school to the interests of children and real life situations through experiential action, introducing pupils to the business culture, familiarisation with entrepreneurship and creation of healthy, active citizens. The programme was implemented using the project method and the approach to the subject was cross-thematic and interdisciplinary.
For the purposes of the programme, a virtual corporation (publishing house "GALERITA S.A.") was founded, which took over the creation and the publication of the album. Pupils, depending on their interests and inclinations, took on roles in the working groups that were created. Beyond the goals originally set, new ideas emerged from the children in the course of the Programme. Some of these ideas evolved into new goals, such as the founding of a school cooperative, which continues the work of "Galerita" as a real organisation and not a virtual enterprise (www.galerita.gr).
