Our annual fall fieldtrips for Elementary and Secondary students took place on Friday, September 20th with the Elementary students and teachers traveling to Apolimena Petra and the Secondary students and teachers visiting Agios Nikolaos (Naoussa). Both trips were a great way for new and returning students to bond with their peers, enjoy the beautiful autumn weather and simply enjoy nature.
