New course for the school curriculum
School authorities announced their plan to add a new course to the school curriculum from the upcoming academic year. The new course, which will be called Food and Health, will introduce young students to the principles of a healthy diet for a healthy life. Authorities believe that the new course will promote the principles of healthy living within the community in general.

The event ended with lunch for participants at the Hellenic American Union.
