Greek Community Language School
Prep to Year 12
Welcome to our warm and friendly Greek School. Our students love coming to Greek School. Let us tell you why. The first thing they learn is the importance and beauty of the Greek language. Many western languages, including English, are based on this beautiful language. They also discover our glorious ancient history. Democracy, Philosophy, Mathematics, History, Poetry, Theatre, Mythology, Architecture. Not only are these all Greek words, the ancient Greeks either introduced these to the world or mastered these fields more than 2000 years ago. And if that's not enough, they learn about colourful religious and national customs and traditions which developed during the Byzantine Christian Age. Apokries (Carnival Season), Agiasmos (Blessing of the Water), Easter, Christmas, celebrating our Name Days, singing demotic songs, dancing traditional dances, lighting the kandilaki (vigil lamp) . . . we could go on and on. Or, you could come and visit us and see this all for yourselves! The school can be contacted on: 0417 393049 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Η Κοίμηση της Θεοτόκου - The Dormition of Mary
This week we commemorated one of the more important name days of the Christian Orthodox calendar, the Dormition of Virgin Mary, otherwise know in Greek, tis Panagias (της Παναγίας). It is celebrated on the 15th of August. As is our tradition at our Greek School, students who celebrated their name days in July and August helped light our vigil lamp.
Principal Con Roubos then explained to the children the significance of Tis Panagias.

Greece’s Wild Fires
Our thoughts and prayers are with the thousands of people affected by the recent fires of Greece. After destructive wildfires ravaged multiple areas in the Greek region of Attica, people both in Greece and around the world are offering various forms of assistance from financial aid to on-the-ground support. Fundraising initiatives are underway in Melbourne across Greek churches, radio stations and print media and the community is in contact with officials in Greece to find out where money is most needed. We are now happy to share the official bank account that has been set up by the Greek Government:
Bank of Greece
Beneficiary : Ministry of Finance
