Each time I entered the School there was a powerful meeting point of thoughts, hard dilemmas, mixed emotions. The students. Teachers and the refugee community are the only ones that made sense in this, that brought back the order of things and fixed my feelings and emotions.

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.

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.
