Welcome to our 3rd issue!
Our research on the area of Kaminia, where our school and homes are situated, led us to the
municipality of Piraeus, which Kaminia is a part of. We have discovered a lot of things about our
area and we have tried to include the most important facts, however, there are so many left

Happy Easter holidays!
