On Saturday, March 16, the Greek afternoon and Saturday schools of the Greek Orthodox Community of NSW (GOCNSW) celebrated the end of Apokries with a fancy dress event.

Students from various schools came along to join in celebrating the Greek tradition, which took place at the Clemton Park Primary School playground in Sydney’s Earlwood.

From 11 am to 1pm, students came dressed in their favourite fancy dress costume, with lots of dancing to be enjoyed including the Greek “Gaitanaki” dance.

A costume and mask parade followed on the special day, with lots of winners announced among the following categories: best dressed, best unusual costume, scariest dressed, oldest student, and youngest student.

Classic games were also played, including well-known musical chairs, and there was even a piñata.
