  • [01] Karamanlis visits elementary school, kindergarten as academic year begins in Greece

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis visited an elementary school and a kindergarten in the Aghios Dimitrios district of east-central Athens on Monday morning, the first day of the 2005-06 academic year.

    The premier, who was accompanied by Education Minister Marietta Yiannakou, was briefed by teachers and staff on issues affecting the schools, and especially the pupils.

    In his brief comments, Karamanlis underlined that the day was the "beginning of a brilliant voyage" on the path of learning for thousands of youngsters. He also noted that Greek citizens have placed education and culture at the top of their list of priorities, with a deep-seated conviction that the latter comprise the best possible investments for the younger generations.
