The island of Mathraki, off the NW coast of Corfu, saw a student parade of one on the October 28, 1940 anniversary known (Ochi Day) on Thursday.

With a total permanent population of 30, the island has a single student, Tassos, a nine-year-old whose presence forced the reopening of the primary school after 21 years.

According to media reports, Tassos was born in Germany. The decision to live on the island was taken by his mother Evgenia Giannopoulou, who was living in Thessaloniki when she saw the island in photographs and decided to relocate.

Asked by Athens-Macedonian News Agency how he felt parading alone, to the clapping of the few residents, he said that the day “will be unforgettable for a lifetime” and added that the only message he wanted to convey is “Hooray for Greece, hooray for the nation!”
