"OHI" Day

 

Last weekend Greeks all around the world celebrated the national holiday know as 'OHI" day. OHI Day commemorates the rejection of Greek Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas of the ultimatum made by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini on 28 October 1940 and the subsequent Hellenic counterattack against the invading Italian forces on the mountains of Pindus. At school, the students were shown a very historic piece of cinematography. It was the first ever Greek animation made in honour of the fighters of October 28. It is a satire of the situation at the time, wanting to cheer up the Greeks and give hope to the army that was fighting in the difficult conditions up on the Pindus mountains. Please enjoy the video which we have attached below... 

 

Ancient Gods and Goddesses Exhibition

 

On Friday 16 September and Saturday 17 September the Ancient Greek Gods and Goddesses came alive at a wonderful exhibition presented by the Year 3 to 6 students. During the term, the students studied about the 12 Olympian Gods and Goddesses and on the last day of term they came dressed as their favourite and presented wonderful research projects to their parents. Μπράβο παιδιά!  

Dormition of Theotokos (15 August)

Kandilaki Assembly

 

On Friday 19 August and Saturday 20 August we held a Kandilaki Assembly to celebrate one of the biggest feast days of the Greek Orthodox calendar, the Dormition of Mary or as we know it in Greek, η Κοίμηση της Θεοτόκου. Children and staff celebrating their nameday helped light the vigil lamp before the principal of the school explained the history and significance of this day to the student body.

Easter 2022 

 

It was great to see all the children back on the first day of Term 2. More importantly, most students remembered to bring in their red eggs to take part in this year's RECC (Red Egg Crack-off Competition) Competition. 

 

Congratulations to Katerina Mirabella from our South Melbourne Campus and Anastasia Tsikaris from our Elwood Campus for being the 2022 RECC Champions.  

 

ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ ΑΝΕΣΤΗ!

 

 Carnival 2022 (Απόκριες)

 

Great to see the students and teachers dress up and the parents turn up to our End of Term Carnival at both our Elwood and South Melbourne Campuses.  Our students did an amazing job presenting poems, songs and dances all around the theme of Apokries, which is also known as the Carnival Season in Greece. 

 

Reminding students to bring in their strongest red eggs on the first day back in Term 2 for our annual Red Egg Crack-off Competition. And last, but not least, all Mother's Day entries are due on the first day of Term 2 as well. Wishing all our lovely students, parents and staff a Safe and Happy Easter break. ΚΑΛΟ ΠΑΣΧΑ!
