OUR ENVIRONMENT – by Elias K. (Senior B)

The world needs our help. But what do we people do? seniors-page - 40298623

Our world is being destroyed. More than 10,000 species of animals are endangered. Still, we continue killing animals.

The Amazon rain forest, the biggest tropical forest in the world is in danger. Americans want to build there skyscrapers but the clan of Inkas don’t allow them to do such a thing.

We produce tons of rubbish every year. Fumes emitted by factories and cars pollute the air.We should use filters but they are too expensive.

Acid rain eats away farmers’ crops. Acid dust affects people’s health.

We must deposit recyclable items in recycling bins and not anywhere else.

All these problems have solutions. We should all think seriously about all this.

Greek Easter Traditions – by Panos Z. (A Senior)


Today is Holy Thursday and in Greece, we are dying the eggs red!

On Good Friday, we go to church and later in the evening we follow the Epitaph round the streets of the neighbourhood.

On Holy Saturday we do the last preparations. We buy the candles, the last presents for our family and we bring home the lamb on the spit from the butcher!

At night we go to church to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. When the priest sings “Jesus has Risen” we all light our candles and kiss. then we go back home where grandma or mum have cooked mageiritsa and we eat all together.

On Easter Sunday dad prepares the lamb in our garden, early in the morning. When the weather is good we have great fun around the barbecue, under the trees in the garden. It’s a great day. Everyone laughs, and plays and we clink eggs, sing, and kiss.

Happy Easter Everyone!
