Greek Students Take Field Trip to Athens Square Park

On the afternoon of May 26, Form V students from Dr. Wisniewski’s Greek I class visited Athens Square Park in Astoria, Queens. The park includes monuments dedicated to the Greek heritage of the residents of Astoria and features statues of the philosophers Socrates and Aristotle, as well as the dramatist Sophocles. After reading passages by these authors, the class enjoyed a meal of traditional Greek food at a nearby restaurant named after Zeno of Cyprus, who founded the philosophy of Stoicism.
