Students celebrate Hellenic pride at St George College’s school dance


In a night filled with vibrant energy and an unmistakable sense of unity, the St George College Greek Dance on Saturday, October 21, in South Australia proved to be a resounding success.

The Cyprus Community Hall, adorned with decor reminiscent of the Greek islands, served as the perfect backdrop for the event.

“As the President of the St George College Parents and Friends (SGC P&F), I can’t help but feel an immense sense of pride in our community. The event’s triumph stands as a testament to the unwavering dedication and tireless efforts of our committee members,” Kosta Barkoukis said.

“Our community plays a pivotal role in elevating the status and leadership of the Arts and Hellenism in multicultural South Australia.”

One of the most captivating aspects of the evening was the remarkable dance performances put on by the students and younger generation of the Greek community. Their performances left a lasting impression, showcasing their commitment and pride in preserving their cultural heritage.

“This event would not have been possible without the engaged leadership of St George College, under the guidance of Principal Peter Karamoschos, and the support of the St George parish,” Mr Barkoukis said.

“The Parents and Friends of SGC have also played a significant role in bringing this remarkable cultural celebration to life, specifically Angela Drouganis, Marie Kartsonis, Despina Pastrikos, Athena Wallbank, Nektaria Pezos and Anthea Koutsantonis.”
