Pythagoras Greek School 

Greek Community Language School

Melbourne, Australia

Prep to Year 12


Welcome to our warm and friendly Greek School.  Our students love coming to Pythagoras 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 Dormition of the Theotokos & the Dekapentaygoustos


On the 15th of August, Greek Orthodox Christians, all around the world, celebrate the Dormition of the Theotokos. On that day at our Greek School we usually light the Kandilaki and say Χρόνια Πολλά to all those with the following names:  Mary, Maria, Despina, Des, Desi, Panagiota, Penny, Mario, Peter, Panagiotis or any other variation. This year, due to Covid-19 restrictions we won't be able to do this, however, we have provided you with some interesting videos about this significant day to watch at home. Χρόνια Πολλά and please stay safe!
