Minister of Education pays visit to Minority Schools

The kindergarten and the minority primary school in the village of Pachni (Paşevik) of the Municipality of Myki (Mustafçova), located in the mountainous area of ​​Xanthi, at a distance of 28 km from the city and at an altitude of 770 meters, were visited by the Minister of Education Niki Kerameos. During the visit N. Kerameos and other officials talked with students and teachers.

"It is a great pleasure to visit today schools in mountainous Xanthi, in the context of tours that we do, from end to end, all over Greece," the minister told APE-MPE.

"It is very pleasant and useful to listen to the proposals of both our teachers and our students, because on the basis of these proposals we very often improve our policies", she pointed out and added:

"I had the pleasure to see, here in Xanthi, the implementation of many new innovations in schools, such as the Skills Workshops which are implemented from this school year in all schools in the country. As well as to discuss other innovations that have been launched, such as the new curricula, English in kindergarten. I consider it our duty to be next to our teachers, next to our students, and this is what I seek to do throughout Greece ". 

Asked about the impression she gained from her visit to schools in mountainous Xanthi, Ms. Kerameos replied: “It was very useful. I had the opportunity to talk extensively with both students and teachers and thus bring to me the practical application of Skills Workshops which is a new policy that has been implemented since September in our schools and is about how to give more knowledge and skills to our children, so that when they finish school well, they will have more supplies for their lives”.

At the elementary school, which has 60 students, the minister entered the classroom. It was a surprise for the children who had not been informed of her visit when they suddenly saw her enter the room.

The minister asked them about the lessons they take, saw how they work during teaching and what means they use and the students answered her questions while they did not hide their willingness to start making trips that they have missed due to the pandemic.  Mrs. Kerameos talked with them in the yard during the break in a relaxed atmosphere about their preferences in lessons and sports.

There are 12 children in the kindergarten and there Mrs. Kerameos talked to them, told her stories, sang and played games. Before she left, they presented her with a painting they had created during the minister's visit.

MITSOTAKIS HAD SAID "ELLINOPOULA"

As it will be remembered, Prime Minister Mitsotakis met with the state kindergarten students in Pachni via video conference in the online program attended by the Mayor of Mustafçova Rıdvan Delihüseyin and the Xanthi Primary Schools Director Stilanidou.

In the meeting in May 2021 with the emphasis on “Pomak villages”, Mitsotakis claimed that “equality before the law” was achieved in the region and “We give equal opportunities to all Greek children (Ellinopoula) regardless of their religion.” had used the phrase.

These statements of Mitsotakis were condemned by the institutions and organizations of the Western Thrace Muslim Turkish Minority and the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

MEVLUT CAVUSOGLU: “I will visit Paşevik”

On the other hand, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, during his visit to Western Thrace on May 30, 2021, responded to the request of his fellow kinsmen saying, "We welcome you to the village of Paşevik," and said, "I hope I will visit the village of Paşevik during my next visit to Western Thrace".
