Starting from humble beginnings in 1983...
The school became a reality when leaders of the Oakleigh Greek Orthodox Community together with the late Reverend Father Nicholas Moutafis established a school primarily to satisfy the educational needs of families of Greek background living in the South-Eastern suburbs. At the time, around 41 percent of Oakleigh’s residents were of Greek heritage, making it an ideal choice for many families in the area. The School also provided an alternative educational facility for those in the wider community seeking the special curriculum and unique philosophy that integrated Greek language, culture and orthodoxy into student learning. And so, Oakleigh Grammar (formerly Oakleigh Greek Orthodox College) was born.
The timeline below presents several important dates, milestones and moments in Oakleigh Grammar’s history that lead to today’s success. We hope you enjoy walking down memory lane with us.
