On Monday May 14 2012, the 3rd Primary School of Serres, Greece had the honour and luck to host representatives of the British Council in collaboration with the International Olympic Truce Centre, who presented their educational programme Imagine Peace to the students. The event took place in the school on occasion of the arrival of the Olympic Flame in the town of Serres on Tuesday, May 15. Students of the 4th, 5th and 6th grades participated in games and activities which aimed to familiarize them with the significance of the Olympic Truce, its ancient history and its modern revival. Finally, all students had the chance to talk to two Olympic champions from Serres, Mr. Yiannis Tsintsaris (weightlifting) and Mr. Apostolos Taskoudis (tae kwon do). The main message earned from this talk was a better understanding of the concept of fair play as well as all the values found in sport.
As a continuation to the above event, students of the 3rd Primary School took part in the Big Dance Schools Pledge, that is a Guinness World Record attempt for the “Largest Dance Routine – Multi-venue” at 1 p.m on 18 May 2012. The Guinness World Record took place on the same day that the Olympic Torch arrived in the U.K.
