During her visit to Germany, Dubravka Šuica, Vice President of the European Commission in charge of Democracy and Demography, also came to the European School Munich and visited the ceremony to celebrate Europe Day that took place on 5 May on the campus of the primary school as part of our European Week.
Mrs Šuica exchanged views with our Director Anton Hrovath and the Director of the Kindergarten and Primary School, Alexia Giannakopoulou, about the special features and distinctive characteristics of the European School Munich. She also visited our state-of-the-art school library and the exhibition "European Hours", which is part of Europe Week.
During the ceremony, Dubravka Šuica described the European Schools as institutions that preserve and promote the diversity of European identities in a unique way and provide a multilingual education of the highest quality for their students. She also answered questions from our primary school students, e.g. about children's rights in Europe.
Dubravka Šuica was enthusiastic about our school and the commitment of our students and teachers: "This was ten times better than any meeting I have had - because you can see the children walk the talk - and live Europe".
