For the 5th year, Pierce – The American College of Greece is collaborating with Diazoma, the American School of Classical Studies, the 85th Kindergarten of Athens, the Elementary School of Ancient Corinth, the Olympia Odos, the 3rd Gymnasium of Corinth, The Smile of the Child, the Municipal Library of Corinth and the Museum of Ancient Corinth. The events focus on highlighting and familiarizing students with ancient theaters and are part of the Ministry of Education-approved program entitled “Students introduce students to ancient theaters.” The subjects students have dealt with so far are: Healing in Antiquity, Music Travels in Time, Women in Antiquity and Beauty in Antiquity.

On Sunday, October 20, at the 5th meeting of Diazoma and in the presence of the Minister of Education, Niki Kerameos, a video prepared by Pierce students was presented, and the entire event was shown on the News of ERT1 that same day.

The event is coordinated by Pierce School Psychologist Dr. Nektaria Glinou. The first year a valued collaborator in the program was Pierce alumna, Helen Kourneta, who teaches at the 85th Kindergarten of Athens, where students of many nationalities attend. In the years that followed, the events have taken place in collaboration with Pierce music teachers, Ms. Dora Panagopoulou and Mr. Orestis Chatzinakis.
