Refugee Children Now and Then

by  The Primary School of Theologos-Potos

Description :

The Primary School of Theologos-Potos took us on a journey through time to learn about a special event that happened in 1938 called Kindertransport. They showed us the objects that the children carried in their suitcases and compared them to what refugee children carry today. To remember the children that were lost during this time, they drew beautiful butterflies. But that’s not all! They also presented two fairy tales that taught us how war affects children. Although it was a triggering topic, the students did a wonderful job of sharing their knowledge and creativity and left us feeling inspired to create a better world filled with kindness and compassion.


The Primary School of Theologos-Potos

The Primary School of Theologos – Potos is the result of the consolidation of the two schools in the nearby villages of Theologos and Potos in the Island of Thassos, Greece.
The administration office and the 1st, 2nd and 4th Grade run in Theologos, while the 2nd, 5th, 6th Grade are in Potos.
A significant number of the population of the villages is either permanent residents or naturalized citizens. Thus, many students are either foreigners or dual nationals.

Great video and lesson behind it. It is crucial for children to learn about history and notice the patterns that keep repeating. This can enable them to become critical thinkers and maybe one day break that pattern.
