Pontians spread Christmas cheer to Sydney nursing homes with annual carols


Pontoxeniteas Sydney have spread some festive cheer this week to Greek nursing homes in Randwick and Lakemba, as well as members’ homes, with their annual Pontian Christmas carols.

The group of young carollers were led through Sydney’s eastern and southern suburbs on Monday, December 19 and Tuesday, December 20 under the instruction of dance teacher and musician, Kosta Papoulidis.

The group’s visit and singing of Pontian carols to residents at St Basil’s NSW & ACT in Randwick and Lakemba brought smiles to the faces of everyone listening.

In a social media post, the Board of Pontoxeniteas Sydney thanked the youth and members of the association for taking part.

“Thank you to Kosta Papoulidis, Ioanna, Stefan, Sofia, Anastasia, Andrew, Georgia, Panayiotis Diamadis, Helen Macris and Maria Anthony for keeping our Pontian traditions alive,” the post read.

The group will continue to spread their Christmas cheer to Sydney’s western suburbs on Wednesday, December 21.
