The National Day’s Celebration (25th March 1821-War for Independence) at the 2nd High School (Gymnassio) of Nea Filadelfia.

On Monday 24th March 2014 – Eve of the National Day’s Anniversary of the outbreak of the War for Independence (25th March 1821) – there was a celebration at the ceremony room of the 2nd High School (Gymnassio) of Nea Filadelfia. The whole action was divided in three parts:

1st and 2nd parts.
During the first and the second parts, there were 1) a presentation of the main heroes who participated in the greek revolution as well as some scenes from that revolutionary period. 2) a video projection whose subject was the conquest of Constantinople by the Turks. 3) a theatrical event entitled: «Οn the Eve of the Revolution» and 4) extracts from «Τhe Free Besieged», the great poem of the Greek National Poet Dionyssios Solomos given in a theatrical way.

3rd part.
The third part was a particular tribute to the Greek General Makriyannis, one of the main heroes of the struggle for Independence whose everlasting thoughts and views were presented. Makriyannis is considered to be the paragon of the greek struggler for Independence, a model not only for the greek people but also for all the people striving for freedom and against slavery and tyranny. There were also some traditional dances and songs honouring the National Day.
The songs were sung by the school choir and Mrs Selina- the school teacher of music- was responsible for the choir’s direction.
Mrs Catherine Sarkou and Mr Sotiris Kirmizoglou were the responsible for the whole action teachers.
