During this fall’s Greek week, La p’tite école and Junior School students were transported to Greece, a beautiful country rich in history, customs, culture and magical landscapes. These celebrations allow, among other things, an awakening to different cultures. They also bring our community together around a common project and bring life to the school.
The students learned cultural facts about Greece, some elements of its history, its role in sports events such as the Olympic Games, the influence of Greek on both English and French, the impact of Greek philosophers, and culinary specialties such as loukoumades and tyropitas.
The atmosphere at both branches was festive, as they were decorated in Greece’s colours, as well as with Greek artifacts. At the end of the week, one of our student’s grandfathers spoke about Greece to our JK students and we ended the day with a traditional Greek dance.
