Elementary school of kypseli (7/θέσιο Ολοήμερο Δημοτικό Σχολείο Κυψέλης(Αίγινας))
Stavroula Koundrarou (Σταυρούλα Ρουσσεα)
Elementary school of Kypseli located in Aegina. It’s a public school with 8 teachers, who teach Greek lessons, an English teacher, a gymnastic teacher and a teacher for children with learning disabilities. All of us have knowledge in H/Y and a satisfactory level in English language.
In our school are studying 125 students aged 6-12 years old. Most of them are taking part with their teachers in national programs every year ( environmental, cultural…). Our educational unit -and some of us- have participated in previous European projects since 1998 ( Comenius) and we really enjoyed it. The most important in our participation was that students- especially those with difficulties in learning or behavior- were interested more.
Participation in technical programme gives them the stimulation to develop their skills and to communicate with other students, to exchange ideas and to work in an interesting technical topic.
There are also teachers in our school that are interesting and are developing small technical projects during the year with their pupils during lessons- as physics.
