Let's do it Greece
On Sunday morning our school and many of our friends volunteered and took part in Let’s Do it Greece. Parents ,children and many residents of our city , met at the Railway Station Park. Everyone had a smile on their face and a common goal. Now our park is clean!
We cleaned, picked up the rubbish and leaves, cleaned the playground and the signs with graffiti . Most of the rubbish was cigarette butts, plastic food wrappers, but we were very surprised when our volunteers found a gas can and some sharp objects, in a park where children and teenagers play.
When we finished cleaning , we also played games , had a treasure hunt and did sport activities.
We promised that we would all make a change and symbolically each of us tied a ribbon on a tree branch!

It was a special experience, because we discovered unknown aspects of where we are in our daily lives.
We thank Mrs Bitsanis for our unprecedented guided tour. And our journey continues …
