Greek language initiative for football students at Malvern City FC begins

·

The Greek language and culture classes of the Greek Community of Melbourne (GCM) began on Thursday, March 2 at the premises of Malvern City football club.

This pioneering program aims to offer the opportunity to young athletes to connect with their Greek identity, the Greek language and customs, while at the same time playing football at their home ground.

Greek language initiative for football students at Malvern City FC begins.

Students and parents were happy to be able to combine their learning of the Greek language and culture with playing their favourite sport – since the lessons take place immediately before or after the children’s training sessions at Malvern City FC.

The GCM hopes to extend this innovative venture to other football clubs, thus enabling as many children as possible to get to know and deepen their Greek roots.

The person responsible for the program is Ms Tzani Anthi, who coordinates and delivers lessons at the football club.
