Eleven children, age between 17 and 19, from Skopelos have saved money for three years in order to be able to travel abroad on the annual school trip.
They will visit Praque, Vienna and Budapest in six days. Yesterday they flew to Bratislava and from there drove to Praque. They will stay there until Monday and on Tuesday they will visit Vienna and continue to Budapest where they will stay until Thursday.
The difficult economic times in Greece , made it impossible to pay all the cash for the trip out of their families pockets, and so they gathered the money with many events, raffles, dance nights, movie showings, selling of calendars and a diner. Many students stay in Greece and visit Crete or Rhodes. These students put the bar higher and aimed for a trip abroad. We congratulate Denisa, Katherina, Eirini, Eleni, Evjenia, Julia, Giorgos, Andreas, Elson, Giorgos and Sofoklis for all the work they did to make this trip possible. Anything is possible if you put your mind to it!
Some of the kids today, Sunday, in Praque.
