 Hello I am Margarita and I am thirteen years old. I live in Alexandria near Veroia, Greece. I go to first class of the secondary school. I learn english too but I still have some time to finish. I have one brother, his name is Stratos and he is seven years old. Also I will have another brother in August you now my mother is pregnant. In my free time I go to the choirs and I love to dance. Also I play the piano. Recently we performed amusical with the choir. Our school is great we have great teachers and excellent students.




My name is Karolina and I’m fourteen years old. I’m from Poland. I live in Zawiercie. I think it is a very beautiful city. I’m in a first class of Secondary School. I like this place very much because it’s pleasant. What can I say about me? I’m very crazy and I think that I’m different person, but I hope that in a positive way :] I’ve got a dog – Freak. He is one year and he is fantastic :] I love him. My best friend is Nadia. She’s got the same interests as me. My favourite subject is Maths and Chemistry. I love Maths. Many people think it is a stupid subject, I don’t know why. I haven’t got any special hobby. I like swimming, skiing, going to school, and I just love meeting my friends.That’s all about me.



Worldwide, some 776 million adults lack literacy skills, 75 million children are out of school and millions more leave school early without acquiring basic literacy and numeracy skills. Literacy is a basic right and a fundamental condition for being part of today’s knowledge societies. Literacy is a key to reduce poverty, increase economic opportunities, improve child and maternal health, prevent HIV and AIDS and encourage political participation.

Under the slogan ‘Open Books, Open Doors’, Global Action Week, led by the Global Campaign for Education, will send a strong signal to policy-makers and the international community on the importance of one of the most neglected Education for All goals. More political commitment, more effective literacy programs and more funding are required to make literacy a basic right for all.

The highlight of the campaign is the “Big Book”, a collection of short stories about how education changes lives. “Big Read” events will be organized, during which individuals will read from this book and sign a statement at the back of it calling for more commitment and investments to ensure that everyone is able to read and write.

It is a school e-newspaper with interviews (and photos) about young people and their life. Pupils will write about everything, but in a peculiar way – by interviewing school friends from different foreign countries. They will ask about school life, system of grading at school, hobbies, music, problems of young people, favourite books, favourite sports, festive traditions, how they spend their free time and other things they want to find out.
