It has been a great time of celebration as we mark Greek Independence Day including a service at the Shrine of Remembrance with Premier Dan Andrews, a Church service with Father George, a visit by His Grace Bishop Kyriakos of Sozopolis, a function at the Hellenic Museum and assemblies and dress ups at our School. These events are a highlight of our school calendar and after two years of cancelled events, it was lovely to be able to participate in celebrations with community.
Oakleigh Grammar was proud to be a representative school at the Greek Independence Day service at the Shrine of Remembrance.
