Mr Psomas presented the award to the School Vice Captain for 2023, Kosmas Tsatas, on Wednesday evening. 

“On behalf of the committee, I would like to wish Kosmas and all the other students best wishes in their future educational studies,” Mr Psomas wrote in a Facebook post after the award ceremony.

The award was named in honour of the praised famous Greek poet and Noble Prize winner, Odysseus Elytis.

To the present day, Elytis is the second and last Greek poet honoured with the Nobel Prize award. Being recognised for having a part in Greece’s 25-century-old literary tradition was a matter of huge pride for Elytis.
