celebrating Greece's independence day


singing our national anthem

On the 25th of last month we celebrated our country’s independence from the Turkish occupation of 400 years. The 25th of March every year is a national holiday here and on the day before we have a celebration at school. We all get together at our school’s concert hall and we read texts, recite poems and sing songs about our independence day. You can hear our national anthem if click on this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hymn_to_Liberty. On our independence day we first go to church and then we have a big school parade. Do you have such parades in your country?

We wish you all a very, very Happy Easter! We’re on holidays now and we’ll be back with more news on the 27th of April 2009. Keep well and enjoy your Easter vacation.

Your schoolmates from Grade 1, 2nd Junior High School of Paralia
