On Tuesday 11 February 2020, the Australian Hellenic Educators’ Association of New South Wales-Australian Capital Territory-Queensland will be presenting the 26th Hellenic Studies Awards. Awardees will include educators with years of invaluable service to Hellenic Studies, and the high-achieving students at primary, secondary and tertiary levels during the 2019 academic year.

Under the auspices of the Consul-General and in cooperation with the Education Office of the Consulate-General, an estimated 120 awards are to be presented to 110 individuals.

According to a statement released by Dr Panayiotis Diamadis, the Association hopes that this cooperative relationship will help to continue and build upon the works of their predecessors.

“Those who built the schools and developed the programmes which we studied at which future generations will continue to learn,” Dr Panayiotis Diamadis wrote in the statement.

The Presentation Ceremony will be held in The Strangers’ Room of the Parliament of NSW, from 6:30pm.

“The AHEA hopes the Hellenic Herald will contribute to the most significant annual Hellenic Studies event in the country,” said Dr Panayiotis Diamadis.
