Greek Orthodox Community of NSW students get creative with Easter lambathes and koulourakia


The Greek Orthodox Community of NSW (GOCNSW) Easter school holiday program was a huge hit with students last week.

During the program, the students had a chance to show their creative flare by decorating their own ‘Lambada’ (candle) for midnight mass on Holy Saturday using various ribbons, strings and other accessories.
