Celebrating Hellenism: Adelaide High School students impress at annual dinner dance


Adelaide High School’s Greek Parents Association hosted their annual Dinner Dance last Saturday at the Chian Association of South Australia.

The sold-out event highlighted the strong Hellenic spirit amongst the broader school community where philhellenes gathered to celebrate Hellenism; ensuring the Greek language, culture and identity remain strong in the diaspora for generations to come.

The evening’s hosts included year 10 student, Yiana Katzavelos and year 7 student, Yanni Thanos who demonstrated their leadership and language skills.

The Adelaide High School Greek Band and the 32 students in the school’s Greek dance group impressed the audience with their precision and kefi. The students had dedicated their lunchtimes and afterschool time to embrace their culture and rehearse for the evening.

Being entertained by Music 3000 – staff, students, parents, and the broader community danced hand in hand, encapsulating the essence of Hellenism.

The Greek Parents Association, led by President, Nektaria Boundris, in partnership with staff at Adelaide High School, continue to work tirelessly to promote Greek language learning. It is through events like this, that it is evident the heartbeat of Hellenism is beating strong in our youth.

Congratulations to the committee, staff, and students on a successful event!
