The school provides a certificate which, together with the Greek high school diploma, guarantees that the student will be able to enrol in Bulgarian schools without taking additional exams, in case their family returns to Bulgaria. Sometimes, for financial reasons, parents have to leave the country with their children and change their environment. The opportunity to enrol in a normal Bulgarian school without additional problems is very important. “Visiting our school provides knowledge not only in Bulgarian history, language, geography and literature, but it also helps children integrate more easily when they return to Bulgaria.” There are additional seminars in mathematics and physics in Greek, which help Bulgarian children in their programme in Greek schools.

Modern writers of the Bulgarian national revival

Mimi Nicheva wanted to express her great gratitude to director Daniela Todorova and other teachers and supporters of the Bulgarian Sunday School “St. Cyril and Methodius”. She emphasised that thanks to her dedication to the Bulgarian national revival, Todorova has given impetus to the project. “In the beginning, there were only two teachers and five children in one room. Now, we have more than 200 students and interest is growing each year. Daniela Todorova is the one who has devoted herself completely and lives with the idea of the Bulgarian school. She managed to gather together a teachers’ team that was inspired by her enthusiasm.” Another friend of the project is George Karaindros. He helps the team and does everything possible in order to expand the school. “From administrative to technical problems - he is constantly supporting us, although he is a Greek,” she stressed.

A monument of Cyril and Methodius

About a month ago, the Bulgarian Sunday School started a petition for the erection of a monument of Cyril and Methodius in Greece. “So far, we have collected over a thousand signatures, but we need more support. According to proposals, it should be built either in Athens or in Thessaloniki. For us, it is not important where the monument will be erected, it is important to pay homage to the two brothers,” said the teacher. The goal is to collect as many signatures as possible for the petition by September this year, so that it may be submitted to the Bulgarian and Greek authorities and the process can start.
