Show Racism & Bullying the Red Card
Therisos (Chania) Music School is a public nonprofit organization that falls into a particular category of leading schools, which take care of not only their students' general education but also, provide them with music training and education, enhance their acquisition of knowledge on music and promote their music appreciation and sensitivity. It belongs to a group of schools suitable for those students who wish to follow a professional career in music. Apart from the music lessons that consist an integral part of our school's curriculum, there's also another prominent characteristic that distinguishes our school from the rest of Secondary Education Schools in Greece and that is its mingling with the local society in various ways, such as free for the public music concerts or projects of cultural or environmental nature.
Our school, founded in 2009, employs teaching staff of about 40 individuals, who teach 150 students. The students' age ranges from 12-17.The teachers, owners of particularly strong CVs, seek to adopt innovative methodologies & student centered materials in order to increase student motivation & make learning more exciting.
Last but not least, there has been an attempt to empower our school's profile as a European Organization. To do so, we are after European Programmes. We have just finished an Erasmus + KA1 and we are very much into E-Twinning. The next step is an Erasmus KA2.
