1st prize for Iris!
The students of the Grade 6 Greek advanced class won the 1st prize in the competition “Name a local reef”.
The competition was organised by CMMI (Cyprus Marine and Maritime Institute) and the Ministry of Education. It was addressed to all Primary Schools in the Larnaca and Famagusta area.
The students chose the name Iris, a sea deity associated with the colours of the rainbow. The vibrant colours of the rainbow are abundant on the habitat’s colourful sea sponges. Also, iris is the scientific name for the coloured part of the eye. The shape of the iris resembles the shape of the reef’s naturally formed arches.
The children worked under the guidance of their Greek teacher, Mrs Eri Nomikou.
We are very proud of our Gr. 6 students’ accomplishment! Congratulations!
