On Wednesday, 5 October 2005, the best students of the Eleia region received their awards from EFG Eurobank during a special ceremony at the Latseion Municipal Hall.  This ceremony was the eighth in a series of 30 events organized by EFG Eurobank in the various Greek regions, as part of its “The great moment for Education” sponsorship programme.

The sponsorship programme, “The great moment for Education”, which was launched by EFG Eurobank in 2003, represents a major educational initiative that further enhances the group’s already strong sponsoring activity in the field of Education, in addition to the fields of Culture, Environment and Sports.

The main aim of this programme is to support and reward school students in their “struggle” for knowledge.  Eurobank wishes in this way to make a valuable contribution to the community in which it operates by helping the young generation achieve its high objectives.


The sponsorship programme, “The great moment for Education” is supported by the Ministry of Education and it concerns over 230,000 pupils graduating from senior high school throughout Greece.  In the context of the programme, EFG Eurobank rewards each year the pupil who achieved the highest marks for admission to tertiary education. The programme includes all 1,300 high schools in Greece, public and private, daily or evening.  The award is accompanied by the amount of  € 1,000, which is deposited in a savings account at an EFG Eurobank’s branch in the relevant city.

The following dignitaries honoured the event with their presence: the representative of Metropolitan Germanos Reverend Vasilios, the President of the Regional Council Haralambos Kafiras, Regional Councillor Andreas Lattas, the Mayor of Pyrgos Gabriel Liatsis, Deputy Mayors Ioannis Mihalakopoulos and Adriana Angelopoulou, Pyrgos Municipal Councillors Efstathios Kannis, Andreas Katevas, Nicolaos Kokkalis, Epaminondas Kyriazis and Gabriel Bertsatos, together with many local government officials. Were also present the Secondary Education Director for Eleia, Nicolaos Daos, representing the Ministry of Education and other representatives of primary and secondary education, as well as members of the region’s economic and social life.

In his address that was read Eleia MP Georgios Kontogiannis congratulated the Bank for its tangible recognition and rewarding of the students’ hard work and perseverance.

On behalf of Metropolitan Germanos Reverend Vasilios conveyed his best wishes to the pupils and congratulated EFG Eurobank for its commitment to social contribution.

The Deputy Mayor of Eleia Ioannis Michalakopoulos took the floor next and congratulated EFG Eurobank for its ongoing support to the pupils’ endeavours through its sponsorship programme “The great moment for Education”.
