11th Geniko Lykio Irakliou
Our school is a general orientation High school in the city of Heraklion Crete and is one of the largest ones (circa 500 students and 46 teachers) which was established 24 years ago. In its lifespan it has managed to stand out as an institution which, not only provides the necessary means and knowledge for the advancement of its students with an ultimate goal the admittance to tertiary education, but especially for the inclusion philosophy of all its members. In this context, there are various groups in the school, such as the music, theatrical, environmental, and STEM groups, which have a long-lasting presence.
Concerning our participation in European programs, during the last 2 years we are participating in a Youth Exchange program and 2 ERASMUS + programs and an Horizon 2020 programme which is implemented by the Regional Administration of Primary and Secondary Education Crete. In addition, our school encompasses participation in European competitions like the Euroscola project (with quite remarkable outcomes by sending 2 delegates in the Europarliament for two consecutive years), the European Commitee Translation competition (Juvenes Translatores) in which our participants were in the 10% of those who excelled.
Concerning the focus of our institution beyond its programme of studies, on an annual base there are various groups that operate as extra-curricular activities like a theatrical group which stages various plays each year with open doors in our own mini-theatre or the municipal one, a music band which participates in the various events organized by the municipal authorities every summer, as well as concerts in the confines of our school , a creative writing club which regularly broadcasts on prose or poetry in local radio stations (many times accompanied by our band), and the group of environmental awareness which plans a plethora of activities, visits and field research sometimes together with other environmental organizations, even from abroad (a programme about water was organised in cooperation with institutions from Spain, 2016).
Our school cooperates with the Universities and research centres which resides in Crete (UOC, HMU, TUC, FORTH and others). Some of our teachers cooperate as visiting scientists with them. The cooperation with those institutions is on the basis of participation of our students in innovative actions of them, in the joint submission of programs, in visits of students to their facilities, but also in the practical education of their students in our school under the supervision of our teachers. Our motivated teachers and the infrastructure of our school not only assure learning, but also pay special attention to the mental and physical well-being of our students creating an environment that enhances the development of students’ skills and Emotional Intelligence. Spacious, well-ventilated classrooms, well-equipped Science and Computer labs, a small library, a hall for multiple activities, games equipment provide our students the necessary support to explore their vocations and to participate in challenging events (school contests in many fields, sports etc.).They are also encouraged to do charity work by donations and volunteering. Additionally, in order help our students to overcome possible hard times we cooperate on a regular basis with a Psychologist appointed by the State and, in parallel, we run awareness programmes against any form of addiction (extending from alcoholism to webaholism). As it is obvious our school has great experience in management and development of many STEM projects (i.e. C.O.T Erasmus program and Connect Horizon Program) beyond all above our students participated and were awarded in many regional and national competitions, congress, and festival concerning the Science, Technology, Arts and Mathematics.
