“We have created together with the children, within the school, two corners of expression and support for the classmates, friends and teachers of Panagiotis. At first we put all these messages and his picture on his desk, but eventually we decided it was better to have his corners outside the classroom. Everyone has left white flowers and their messages about his tragic loss. Everything is addressed to Panagiotis”, he says excitedly.
As he underlines, the children feel sadness but also anger for the unjust death of their classmate. “We couldn’t follow the training program. Our goal is to slowly return to normality.
