Art therapy activities have been one of the most successful tasks during all the project. We had the opportunity to combine creativity with Mental Health and relaxation and hand activities all throughout the age-groups. Here you can see some examples.
An event in celebration of the end of Erasmus H.A.P.P.E.N.S took place in the 11th Primary School of Haidary on Wednesday 31st of May 2017.
During those two years all students, teachers and parents of our school and the wider community focused on well – being through healthier eating habits, an active life style and a work-life balance.
Students of all grades presented through dancing, singing, painting, reading and playing scenes of their everyday life showing the numerous benefits they have gained from this project.
The responsibility for coordinating the event had the Erasmus+ happens team with the help of many teachers of the school.
Local authorities, the mayor, teachers and head teachers from other schools, parents and families were present and enjoyed the ceremony.
In the end everybody left with a smiling face thinking how simple things can make our life healthier and happier.
On Sunday 2nd April 2017 the Erasmus team of our school organised a walking tour of the Diomedous Botanical Garden for parents, students and teachers .We all walked up a mountain path through the forest enjoying nature,a beautiful spring morning and each other’s company.
After the session of Art therapy we attended in the Salerno, Italy LTTA, the Erasmus team organised a similar session in our school for parents and teachers. In an activity combining art creativity and music, our headteacher mrs Tsilpiridou introduced the decoupage technique and parents, teachers and students transformed jars, bottles and old benches and at the same time relaxed and communicated.
