Lest we Forget!

On Wednesday 27th April, our College was honoured to host the Greek Presidential Guards for our ANZAC Day memorial assembly.

Our Senior School drummers entered the assembly ahead of our special guests – His Grace Bishops Evmenios of Kerasounta, Reverend Father John Frangos, Reverend Fathers, Tony Tsourdalakis, Jim Grivas and  Major Vasileios Sakelaropoulos and Sergeant Major Efthimios Theodorou.


The College Senior Chanting group chanted “Christ is Risen”/“Χριστός Ανέστη”, as well as a memorial hymn for those who have lost their lives during war under the direction of Mr Vaios Anastossopoulos.


A wreath was laid by Helena P and Major Vasileios Sakelaropoulos, and students stood for 1 minute silence in respect to the service men and women who have lost the life.


Major Vasileios Sakelaropoulos and Sergeant Major Efthimios Theodorou spoke to our students, staff and visitors about the Evzones  Military uniform and the role and importance of the Presidential Guard.


A special thank you gift was presented to the Major by Kayla Z and Maria A. And the Major presented the College Principal Mrs Anna Urban with a special gift also.
