Journey into fairytales: Greek Community of Melbourne launches holiday program for kids


The Schools of the Greek Community of Melbourne (GCM) are preparing to take their young friends on a magical journey into the world of traditional fairy tales with a wonderful holiday program titled “Red Thread Tied,” which will be held on Monday, July 8th, at Huntingdale Hall, and on Wednesday, July 10th, at the Greek Centre.

This original program, aimed at children aged 5 to 10 regardless of their level of Greek language proficiency, focuses on the well-known folk tales “The Sweetest Bread” and “Lady Good and the Twelve Months.”

Inspired by these tales, participating children will embark on a magical journey into Greek tradition and learn about key elements of folk culture. With Greek as the primary language of communication, and through a series of experiential activities and games, they will learn about the seasons, discuss emotions, learn traditional dances, make crafts, cook, and discover the process of bread-making from field to table.

It is worth noting that each of the two days of the program is dedicated to a different fairy tale and includes different activities, so children who wish to can attend both days.
