Our first event for junior high students was special, since every program was adapted to their age. At the same time, Field of Life's had two surprises for them: We modified a school room into an impressive lounge area, with table tennis, table football, chess board and a big screen that played videos from our previous events. Next to this room, we created a TV studio and kids had the chance to produce their own TV shows about Field of Life's experience and they called their friends to join our events!
Regarding the programs, kids played football and learned the values of the beautiful game. They enjoyed themselves with dance, learned how to execute impressive experiments and created their own beauty products. Graffiti artist Same84, who created the special graffiti on the corridor of our hub, taught them this special art and finally, students were taught self-defense.
During the break, we offered to the kids a healthy lunch box and a juice. In the end, everyone received a special gift, to remember Field of Life's experience. Coach Panagiotis Giannakis talked to the kids about his childhood in Nikaia, about their inner strength and the way they can fulfill their dreams and everyone left the school with a big smile!
