The classrooms were full. The walls were decorated for the most part with pictures of heroes (Karaiskakis, Kolokotronis, etc.). On National Holidays the pictures were crowned with laurel branches.
The maps were the main feature of the classroom. Maps of geography, natural history, history, mythology etc.
The image of Jesus Christ was always in the center of the wall and above the blackboard.
The wooden desks, usually green in color were set up in a row. Each wooden desk hosted two students and sometimes even three. Comparing the school of the past with the present school we can point out that the old school belonged to the graphosphere (school of paper and ink) as opposed to the modern school which belongs to the iconosphere (school of image). The material place of objects is now replaced by the immaterial image of them, sometimes even digitally.
