PM Mitsotakis Visits Primary School in Kallithea

ATHENS – Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis visited a primary school in the Athens district of Kallithea on Monday, the first day of reopening for primary schools, kindergartens and day-care centres since they were closed in March.

Speaking to teachers he said that parents should feel safe and send their children to school, adding that he decided to reopen schools after being reassured that there was no danger.

Mitsotakis said that he had supported the reopening of primary schools because, otherwise, the children would have stayed away from school for six months, from March till September, adding: "I believe that was a source of concern for us all".

Education Minister Niki Kerameus and Deputy Education Minister Sofia Zacharaki accompanied the prime minister on his visit to the school.
