The basic principles of the "new Lyceum" (high school) were announced by Education Minister Anna Diamantopoulou on Wednesday, with changes aiming at the discouragement of rote learning, making the ubiquitous tutorial schools obsolete and more free time for extra-curricular activities.

The changes will be introduced gradually beginning in September, in the ninth grade.

Diamantopoulou stressed that the first year in high school will be providing a general education background and will function as a 'bridge' between high school and junior high school.
