Our final presentation for Aesop’s myths

Our pupils working in three groups presented on Monday , the 5th of March three of Aesop’s myths to the whole school and teaching staff, parents but also teachers and pupils from neighborig schools.

Aesop was a Greek fabulist and story teller credited with a number of myths now collectively known as Aesop’s myths. Although his existence remains unclear and no writings by him survive, numerous tales credited to him were gathered across the centuries and in many languages in a storytelling tradition that continues to this day. Many of the tales are characterized by animals and inanimate objects that speak, solve problems, and generally have human characteristics. (wikipedia)

The dance club presented the tail “The lion and the mouse” as a musical, the art club presented the  tail “The sheperd liar” as a mappet show and the theatre club presented the tail “The ant and the cicada ” in the form of a movie. The groups cooperated with each other for costumes, music and acting advice. We hope you enjoy our presentation as we enjoed working on it!

An article about the Folklor exhibition



Greek folklore exhibition

The 1st Primary school of Schimatri  organized on Wednesday 17 January in the school’s classroom, an exhibition of objects of folklore art titled “The chest of folk art”.

The aim of the exhibition was to bring children into contact with elements of our cultural heritage, to learn about different types of art and more specifically to see utilitarian or decorative objects of an earlier era.

The implementation of the exhibition was divided into two parts. In the first part, both the students of the E and F classes of the school and the teachers collected objects that are examples of folk art and in the second place they placed these objects in the hall of events in a way that reminds a folklore museum room.

The exhibition was open to the public, since not only the students of the two classes but also the whole school and the parents of the children could attend. Class children were divided into two groups. The first group included the A and B classes and the second group the C and D classes. The students of the E and F classes were those responsible for running the exhibition and those who made the presentation of the program.

The presentation included the description of the exhibits by the children, the display of folk art items they had made, embroidery, paper costumes embroidered with threads, painting paintings with colored threads in black cardboard. In addition, technology has been used to display art slides through a computer and view photos.

In the first group, the children read a fairy tale titled “The Mother-Good and the 12 months”, followed by painting by groups and in the second group the children showed the steps of dancing with the help of the song “45 handworkers” they watched the legend for Arta’s bridge. The presentation of the program lasted from 8 in the morning until 2 noon and the school welcomed the director of the school Mr. Stratis Eugenia. The coordination of the whole process and the preparation was undertaken by the teachers of Aleksi Eleni, Notis Stasini, Siarapi Katerina, Palaiologou Nafsika and under the direction of Mrs. Theodoridou Maria.
