Geographical Site for Researching Assistance

 Dear friends. It is my pleasure welcoming you to this Geographical web site that provides variety of  geographical information . I have honestly developed this web site for my students as well as for others that are concentrating and focusing in Geography especially in the field of Geographic Information Systems. Hoping that this unique educational designed structure, will provide you all the necessary assistance for their class readings, and to prepare their minds to be tomorrow's leaders in different ways. These pages are also  filled with other varieties of geographical concepts, news and publications, that might be interesting for you to read. Thanking you all for your support and hoping that the design of this site will be very enjoyable and your comments, your visits and your involvement within the school's department of Earth & Geographic Sciences will help you gain and understand important environmental, human, physical, technological, and economical issues that our globe is facing today. I hope that your frequent visiting to this web site, always will  find something new to view or read.

Sincerely

George Sekkes

Με μεγάλη μου χαρά σας καλωσορίζω στην ιστοσελίδα που έχει αποκλειστικά  γεωγραφικό περιεχόμενο. Την δημιούργησα ειδικά για τους μαθητές και μαθήτριες μου, που πιστεύω ότι με την συχνή τους επίσκεψη θα τους βοηθήσει σημαντικά στο μάθημα της Γεωγραφίας, καθώς επίσης και στο να καταλάβουν κάποια βασικά γεωγραφικά φαινόμενα, φυσικά και ανθρώπινα που συμβαίνουν πάνω αλλά και δίπλα από τον πλανήτη μας. Εύχομαι η περιήγηση σας να είναι ευχάριστη και οποιαδήποτε σχόλια η άλλες εισηγήσεις που θα έχετε, θα είναι ευπρόσδεκτες να τις ακούσω.

Με Χαρά
