Parents brought fans to children who were writing in Thessaloniki to beat the heat

Parents brought fans to children who were writing in Thessaloniki to beat the heat

The Panhellenic championships continue, and the heat creates additional difficulties for the candidates. Parents came to the examination center with fans from their homes.

A heat wave sweeps the entire country and unprecedented temperatures for the season make any activity difficult, while thousands of applicants are still taking Panhellenic exams today. Even in Thessaloniki, the heat is unbearable from early morning. Some exam centers have turned sunrooms into “stoves” where candidates have to concentrate and think about answers to questions.

The 5th High School in East Thessaloniki has been housed in the front rooms for at least 10 years. None of these rooms have air conditioning and most rooms don’t even have fans.

The school management has asked parents to bring fans from their homes to crack today’s exam and make students perform well. So from early morning, as can be seen in the pictures of ERT, parents and students entered the school with fans in their hands, in an effort to create a more suitable atmosphere for the exams.

According to the decision of the Mayor of Thessaloniki, Stelios Angelotis, kindergartens and primary schools of the Municipality of Thessaloniki will operate until 11.30 am today and tomorrow. Predicted due to increased temperature.
