Primary school teachers to gather outside Oreokastro school in support of children refugees

Primary school teachers from around the region of Oreokastro, in northern Thessaloniki, are planning to gather outside the 1st primary school as a sign of solidarity to their colleagues and children refugees studying there.

Speaking to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA), the school principal Sotiris Skandalis said the initiative belongs to the region’s school principals and teachers’ associations.

“Tomorrow they will come here and we will all be together to welcome the children refugees. It’s an initiative to raise our morale which was tested in the last few days,” he said.

The children arrived today shortly after 14:00 without any incidents.
