Community

One of Oakleigh Grammar’s greatest strengths is its community.  Although it has evolved in many ways over the last few decades and is no longer just a school created by the Greek Orthodox community for the Greek Orthodox community, the sense of connection remains as strong today as it did almost 30 years ago when the school began.

By opening its doors to students with different heritages and from all faiths and denominations, the School is enhancing students’ experience and appreciation for the wider community we now live in.

Greek Orthodox faith and Christian values continue to be the corner stones of the school’s philosophy and are evident in the warmth and support felt throughout the school.

Oakleigh Grammar is extremely fortunate to have such passionate and dedicate supporters in its student and parent bodies, its alumni and especially in the Parish of Sts Anagiris Greek Orthodox Church and the Greek Orthodox Community of Oakleigh and District.

Curriculum initiatives including the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program, The Leader in Me and the Reggio Emilia approach all have at their core a fundamental belief in the importance of connecting to and appreciating community.  Through these methodologies the school is strengthening students’ awareness and understanding of local and wider communities.
