Pedagogical Congress



Lycée Léonin, Patissia – Athens

25/01/2007: Greece

From the 12th to the 14th January 2007, the Lycée Léonin organised in collaboration with the Pedagogical Faculty of the University of Patras, a pedagogical Congress on the theme: “How to harmonise, in the school setting, the instructions, orientations and techniques proposed by the central administration of the Ministry, with daily and up to date experiences and initiatives, taken by the teachers in their class or in the school establishment as a whole?”

As principal presenter for this Congress we invited Mr David Frost, teacher at the University of Cambridge who analysed for us “the role of the teacher as a renovator at the personal level, at the level of his class and at the level of the interior organisation of each establishment.”
Thereafter, the two hundred and fifty participants, teachers from the public and private schools of Athens, after having shared practical experiences from their different schools, met in small groups, shared and analysed the effectiveness of these experiences, noting the difficulties and the obstacles of all sorts of meetings. They concluded that the success of these innovations depends on the good collaboration between the heads of school, between the teachers, the collaboration also with the parents of the students, pedagogical means put in place and especially the personal investment of the teacher. A team of teachers from our Establishment presented to the group its experience on “the methodology of leading a class, the way of approaching students effectively and accompanying marginalised students.”
All the participants highlighted the importance of the collaboration between the administration and the teachers within an Establishment and even the collaboration between Establishments under the form of a network.
Once again we noted that the Educational Project conceived by Marcellin Champagnat is always up to date and remains for the Marists a sure reference point in the exercise of their apostolic mission.
