On September 11 the opening ceremony of the school year was held in the large courtyard of the Marist College of Athens, the largest and oldest in the city of Athens, with a special blessing of the Church.

The school year, in all Greek schools, always begins with a ritual blessing ceremony in which students, staff and parents participate. As every year, we had the honor of welcoming to their home the 1,400 students, accompanied by their families, former students who wish to maintain links with the school, and also a number of local personalities.

This celebration was exceptional and full of emotion. It was presided over by the Orthodox Bishop Georgios.

With great joy and enthusiasm, three of our former students, now government ministers, welcomed the students and their parents: the Minister of Health, Vassilis Kikilias, the Minister of Digital Government, Kyriakos Pierrakakis, and Georgios Koumoutsakos, Deputy Minister of Migration Policy. In addition, Mr. Manolis Kalampokas, councilor of Athens, representing the Mayor of Athens, and Mr. Bakogiannis, were present to wish the new and returning students a successful school year.

The media were there to cover the celebration, highlighting the large number of participants and the presence of the personalities mentioned above.

The entire Marist family gathered to place the new school year under the protection of the Virgin Mary.
