Two years after the sudden passing of Evangelos Mantoulidis in the spring of 2007, the Schools decided to republish his Etymological Dictionary of the Ancient Greek Language in honor of his memory.
Evangelos Mantoulidis, an eminent teacher of Classical Greek Philology, worked primarily on language, focusing on the roots and origins of Ancient Greek words. His gift for teaching Ancient Greek and Latin, languages he held an abiding reverence for, distinguished him among colleagues as a venerable educator in his discipline.
During the 1970s, while he was directing one of the largest tutoring school in northern Greece with an enrolment of up to 2500 students, he published a series of books on the subject of language, etymology and grammar. He strove to make his lessons accessible to the students, understandable and interesting. He taught the etymology of words in the form of a game, bringing his lessons to light and life.
You can find the etymological dictionary at Ianos and Konstandinidis bookstores.
Mandoulides Schools wanted to strengthen the bonds between the institution and our city. As part of its 20th Anniversary, the Schools undertook a special collection edition entitled: Thessaloniki, Through Writers of the Past, published by Ianos. The selection of excerpts and the layout and composition of the book was undertaken by philologist Dr. Aspa Hasioti. The book was presented to the public by Minister of Culture Evangelos Venizelos, author Nikos Bakolas, Professor of Law at Aristotle University George Anastasiadis, and publisher Nikos Karazas. Selected excerpts were read by Alex Kostalas.
Fabulist is the literature magazine created yearly by Mandoulides Schools’ Junior and Senior High School students. In this magazine, students publish their poems, stories and essays inspired by current events, as well as their entries in literary competitions and rhetorical speech tournament events (Impromptu and Oratory). Finally, the student project based on Mandouldes Schools’ participation in the International Student Conference which takes place at the Zografeio Lykeio in Istanbul in honor of a different Greek writer each year is also published in the magazine.
The magazine Flame is comprised of essays by students of Mandoulides Schools written in English and illustrated by students. Through its pages, Junior and Senior High School students express their opinions on issues of global interest. At the same time, they unfold their literary talent, by writing poems and original stories. Finally, they narrate personal experiences from visits to foreign countries under student exchange programs and student conferences, and from participation in rhetorical speech competitions and in the Panhellenic Forensics Association Tournament.
In order to help keep students fully prepared and up to date on information related to their lessons, the Schools publish a selection of helpful books, articles and papers written by a team of expert educators. In this way, students are freed from the concern of whether or not the choice of supplementary material is suitable to the educational needs of the student.
