Mi­grant pupils.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Some 30 refugee chil­dren stay­ing at an ac­com­mo­da­tion cen­ter in Ra­fina, out­side Athens, at­tended their first day of school yes­ter­day. The chil­dren were wel­comed at the 1st Pri­mary School of Ra­fina by the town mayor and the deputy re­gional gover­nor of At­tica. Refugee chil­dren have been start­ing to go to classes at schools across the coun­try since Oc­to­ber. De­spite sev­eral iso­lated in­stances of par­ents protest­ing against refugee chil­dren at­tend­ing school, the project has re­port­edly run smoothly with an ever in­creas­ing num­ber of chil­dren par­tic­i­pat­ing.
