PreK2 and Grade 5 visit the Macedonian Museum of Art!
Thursday, 10 April 2014 21:11

On arrival at the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, the Pre K 2 students were asked by the guide," What do you think you'll see in the museum today?". Imagine her surprise when the children shouted out " Jackson Pollock" and " Van Gogh"!!

Pre-K 2 children had just finished their project on ' Art Appreciation' - looking at various artists and their work and had very strong opinions about art!  At the museum, the guide led the children through a story of two sculptures on display - Adam and Eve - and then it was into the craft rooms to make their very own masterpieces!  Our class of 4-year-old students had a wonderful experience and as always, behaved beautifully! 

What does water cascading over umbrellas, a bobbing skeleton, and a domino-effect video have in common?  "Movement in Sculpture With the Use of Technology"! This was the theme of the very engaging interactive art exhibit which the 5th grade students experienced in their tour of the Macedonian museum. At first glance, these modern sculptures didn't communicate much to the children.  After a brilliant presentation, however, (which was conducted in English) these children came away with a new understanding and appreciation of modern art.  As with the Pre-K, the students took part in a hands-on activity at the end of the exhibit, where they were able to create their own movable sculpture.  Two hours passed in the blink of an eye!

Pinewood Makes a Difference at the Alexander the Great Run!
Thursday, 10 April 2014 20:49

Pinewood is proud to have participated in the Alexander the Great Run on April 6, an event which raised awareness for the group A-21, an organization working to combat human trafficking in Europe! It was a huge success with 60 students, teachers and parents running in the 1k, 5k, and 10k runs! We also raised awareness for their 1109 hotline number, and of the work they are doing here in Thessaloniki to fight human trafficking! As Melissa Johnson of A-21 told us, "Pinewood made a HUGE difference!"

Forensics Competition, Athens 2014
Monday, 07 April 2014 09:26

The final weekend of March saw a group of 19 students ranging from grade 9 all the way to 12 travel to Athens in order to compete in the Annual Panhellenic Forensics Tournament.  Forensics is a Language Olympiad that encompasses many different skills ranging from the creative and dramatic, to academic and informative, through 6 different events including: Oratory, Impromptu, Group Discussion, Debate, Oral Interpretation of Literature and Duet Acting.  

This year's tournament, held by HAEF, saw Pinewood return for a second year in a row with the largest team in nearly 10 years, and the first team to field all 6 events since the early 90's.  The students had been working hard since before Christmas, and were rewarded with many stand out performances.  A last minute scheduling change brought our bus back in the wee hours of the morning, but the reward was to to hear the Savvas Sfairopoulos (Grade 11, Impromptu), and the duet team of Niya Kafedzhyiska and Rita Platanos (Grade 9, Comedic Duet) were both rewarded with Honorable Mentions. 

The students were wonderful ambassadors of Pinewood, both in and outside of the tournament, and the Pinewood Community should be proud of their accomplishments.  A fire was lit for many of the first time participants, and with the tournament returning to Thessaloniki next year, preparations are already under way. We wish to extend a warm "Thank you!" for the support, and encouragement, of colleagues and family alike.

Spring has Sprung at Pinewood EYP!
Friday, 04 April 2014 08:11

Spring has sprung in the Pre Kindergarten classes this week!

Mrs, Anna Maria and the children in Pre K 1 spent time coloring their eggs for the forthcoming Easter Egg Hunt. The children used a variety of methods - wrapping the eggs in onion skins, wrapping eggs in colored thread and using elastic bands to make patterns. Peter Cottontail will be proud!

Next door in Pre K 2, the children enjoyed the company of 20 fluffy chicks - thanks to Dr. Clare Squires for arranging this annual treat! The chicks are now heading off to their new homes, probably for a little peace and quiet!

Next Friday, all the students in EYP, will travel to Perek in Monopigado to taste some delicious snacks and to join in the Easter Egg Hunt!
