Greek school students from Coburg hold assembly to mark bicentenary of Greek Revolution

·

The Greek School “Presentation of Our Lord” in Coburg held a school assembly on Monday, March 15 to celebrate the 200 years of Greece’s independence.

Over 60 students, ranging from our Prep class through to the High Schoolers, did activities to celebrate the day.

There were over 60 students in attendance. Photos supplied.

This included the making of flags and national costumes, through to poems and a small sketch by the older students. All activities highlighted the importance of Greece’s independence and recognised the “heroes” that provided us the freedom we have now.

Students recited poems during the school assembly. Photos supplied.

The students were well supported by their teachers and with their parents present, it was a great way to celebrate Greece’s Independence.

The Assembly was hosted by the Parish Priest at the Church, Father Leonidas, and the teachers from the school.
