Adelaide High School Greek Parents Association Dinner Dance hailed a success

·

More than 200 parents, grandparents and members of the wider community attended the sold out annual Dinner Dance organised by the Adelaide High School Greek Parents Association and held on Saturday 15th May at the Chian Association clubroom in Rosewater, Adelaide.

Parents and educators worked tirelessly to organise the event which was part of a series of activities presented by the Adelaide High Modern Greek Class students in commemoration of the 200th Anniversary from the beginning of the Greek Revolution.

The audience was entertained with a music performance by the School’s Greek Band, led by Mr Con Piliouras and a traditional Greek dance performance by the Dance Group, led by Nektaria Boundris and Irene Argyrou.

Representing the Greek Students of Adelaide High School was Vasileia Markou, who in both the English and Greek language, payed her respects to the heroes of the Greek War of Independence, thanked her family their support in learning about her culture, language and values and vowed to pass on the spirit of Hellenism to the next generation.

Ms Nektaria Boundris, President of the Greek Parents Association highlighted the importance of keeping the Greek language alive and expressed her gratitude for the support received by the community. 

From their part, the School’s Greek language staff were pleased with the students’ involvement in the evening and stressed the value of community events that nurture Australia’s young Greeks.

The evening went on with the tunes of Adelaide Greek Band MUSIC 3000 and Polixeni who ensured the dance floor was busy all night.
