School Staff

The School is a magnet of kindness and knowledge. It’s so many things. It’s the space where the memories and realities of the past transform into visions and possibilities of the future. It’s a reminder to everyone, regardless of his/her age or origin, of their talents, their playfulness, and their capacity to learn.

The school of peace has always been and will always be pivotal and part of refugees' lives on Lesvos Island.

because thanks to the school, people from different backgrounds get together for learning language skills, share feelings and their stories. without any language barrier, they interact with one another for sharing empathy, and gain back hope for a better future.

The special thing about our school is that it is made out of patches, when each and every student, teacher and team member adds something and makes it what it is - the story of us all, the future of us all.

We're not just a school, we're a big family. In this family, it’s unknown who are the parents, everyone plays the role of a family member for one another, sometimes a seven-year-old child becomes a parent to other students. In this school; there are young students with big hearts and unique dreams. In spite of their problems, these kids are one step closer to their goals every day. Every day they are stronger than yesterday.

The school is like a paradise for me, a paradise full of beautiful flowers and we help them grow up.

ISOP For me is hope. all the people that come to this island (Lesvos) has been through a very long journey, and they are tired and lost, the school gives them light and hope. 

They find something nice on this island, something free, a place for their children. 

The idea I want to tell is that ISOP means for me, hope,  chance, and light.

Peace can be a short conversation or even a small smile. Peace can be a piece of sandwich or chocolate. Peace comes from our hearts, brains!

School of peace is actually a true story that I have been, seen and heard from many different cultures, religions and languages.
