On Tuesday 13th of August, Oakleigh Grammar celebrated the inaugural visit, and blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Makarios Griniezakis Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church of Australia.
His Eminence was warmly greeted at the School gates by flag bearers, members of our Junior School and Early Learning Centre, before following the Oakleigh Grammar drummers into a formal assembly, held in his honour.
The day proceeded with classrooms visits, as His Eminence showed particular interest in the educational pursuits of each student at the School. Finally, the visit concluded with lunch alongside some of Oakleigh Grammar’s most prestige dignitaries, and a special church service at the School Parish, St Anargiri.
The day was a special occasion for all, and an event Oakleigh Grammar and the surrounding Community will truly remember for years to come.
