This is our schoolyard and in the middle our newly planted tree!...

Our school in Megalopoli, was founded in 1926, but an earthquake in 1965 destroyed it, so the building you see in the photos was made in the early 70's. It now has 13 classrooms, with 317 pupils from 12 to 15 years of age. Megalopoli, is an industrial city, which was founded because of the presence of lignite in the subsoil of the area. Four electrical power units contribute to Greece's power supply. Among other important things, is the ancient Theater which according to archaeologists, was the biggest in Greece, with a capacity of 17.000-21.000 people. The town of Megalopoli is surrounded by forests with the biggest being Mountain Mainalo, our topic for our project.
