"In the ten years that I have been director, there have been regular exercises to deal with earthquakes, as provided for in the relevant circulars of the Ministry of Education, which we implement to the letter." said Mr. Letsios

And he pointed out that "The children were educated, the teachers knew what they had to do and that was what saved us. But also the fact that we kept our composure. "

As Mr. Letsios explained "These exercises are not done for formal reasons. I always tell students and teachers that they can save us, as it happened. "

As for the school, as the teacher emphasized "For the time being, it will be housed in a space provided by GEETHA, in the" SCHINA "camp in Tyrnavos, at a distance of 12 km from Tyrnavos.
It is a state-of-the-art building that meets all standards and has been closed for years. Due to the movement that will be needed to get there, children will find an opportunity to escape from the difficult images and the heavy climate of the area.
