2016 COLLAB: Arsakeio High SCHOOL OF THESSALONIKI & STE. GENEVIEVE MIDDLE SCHOOL

This fall, students from Missouri, USA partnered with us for some peer learning and cultural interaction.

It all started with introductions and questions on an online virtual canvas ...

Please click below to see:

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” Saint Augustine

Then, we connected through social media ...

... until we decided to defy the 8-hour time-zone conflict and hang out in real time :)

"Time is the longest distance between two places." Tennessee Williams

Our meet-up was scheduled at 06:15 Ste. Genevieve time, which is way tooooo long before school starts,

and at 14:15 Thessaloniki time, which is when our last session at school starts.

Et voila!

Our common plan came true thanks to technology on 19.10.2016!

THANK YOU ALL & YOUR PARENTS, SGMS GUYS, 4 WAKING UP SO EARLY ONLY 2 MEET US!

YOU ALL ROCK!

:)

A VERY big SHOUT OUT TO YOUR TEACHER, RHETT OLDHAM, FOR SETTING THIS UP FOR EVERYBODY!

"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all." Aristotle, Greek philosopher

No doubt, face-to-face trumps facebook hands down

:)

Keep in touch, guys!
