We were honored and very proud to present Hellenic Education to NYC students of BEACON AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS at Roosevelt Island PS/IS 217 on Aug. 4th, 2017.
Our sincerest gratitude to Ms. Aikaterini Eythymiadou, Beacon Program Coordinator and Mr. Christos Alexandrou, Vocal & Theater Instructor for giving us this great opportunity in presenting our initiative:
"ΝΟΥΣ ΥΓΙΗΣ ΕΝ ΣΩΜΑΤΙ ΥΓΙΕΙ"
(“healthy mind in a healthy body”….Thales of Miletus… 624 –546 BCE)
Hellenic Education for Healthy Minds, Healthy Bodies
In collaboration with:
*** HELLENIC EDUCATION & LANGUAGE PROGRAM (H.E.L.P.) ***
Ms. Marianna Kokkinaki , teacher at H.E.L.P. presented the myths of Goddess Athena and the sacred olive tree, and of the Melissa (bee) and the essential honey. It was a fun and educational experience for our kids and immensely enjoyed along with tastings of authentic Hellenic products: olives, olive oil and pita bread, and honey with yogurt and gift samples of olive oil and honey to take home. We are all looking forward to presenting future sessions in enlightening and feeding the minds and bodies of our students with the eternal Hellenic Spirit, Language and Ideals.
"ΑΙΕΝ ΑΡΙΣΤΕΥΕΙΝ" and Healthy Minds in Healthy Bodies to all our children!
INDULGING IN THE FINER THINGS IN LIFE FOR A DEEP APPRECIATION OF HUMANITY AND NATURE
