PRESS RELEASE – Milos nursery schools visiting the Milos Mining Museum

The Milos Mining Museum began its current year’s cycle of educational programs by inviting the children of the island’s nursery schools. Thus, in February 23-24, 2016, 76 children from the Adamas, Triovassalos, Plaka, Trypiti, and Pollonia kindergartens participated in the program «Transplanting a local plant», and in the artistic happening that followed focusing on the environment.

The children planted lentisks in pots after they had first made themselves the mixture of perlite and turf (peat) following the instructions by the forester Mr. Giorgos Petrakis. Ms. Christina Sfakianaki, artist, organized the happening offering the children a pleasant and creative pastime.

At the end of the two-hour program each child took the lentisk that it had transplanted, while each nursery school will decorate its class with its own “tree” created by the children’s drawings and collages of colored leaves.

The childrens’ transportation to and from the Museum was undertaken by Imerys, the sponsor company of the educational program.
