Visit to Ancient Corinth with the American School of Classical Studies and “Diazoma”

For the 4th year, 20 Pierce Gymnasium students and 28 students from the 3rd Gymnasium of Corinth (at which many youngsters from the organization “Smile of the Child” of Ancient Corinth study) met at the Museum of Ancient Corinth and in the yard of the American School of Classical Studies.

This year’s collaboration included a online lesson via Skype and then a meeting of the students, who attended the interactional presentations of archeologists and educators of the Museum and of the American School of Classical Studies (read the article here).

Finally, the students sang and recited poetry on the theme of internal and external beauty. The students enthusiastically ended the day with an outdoor circle dance with the Roman Conservatory of Ancient Corinth as a backdrop. This site was adopted by Pierce in 2015, through the organization “Diazoma.” The construction company Olympia Odos provided the transportation, the filming and the food. The event was part of the program approved by the Ministry of Education entitled “Students guide students in ancient theaters.”
