I have a deeper understanding of my Greek roots, studied the language and culture and then been able to travel as part of the school’s program to China, Turkey, Gallipoli, Crete and Greece for five weeks with all of my class mates.”Meanwhile, the event served as an occasion to celebrate the school’s record of achievements over the last few years.“Our school has seen many exciting new projects and new learning facilities under the current principal, Dr Vivianne Nikou,” said Dr Pirpiris.Alphington Grammar recently took possession of the first of three projects – including a new entrance to the school, new student facilities, lifts connecting all the levels in the school, a brand new reception and offices for the staff – while a new Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths Centre is now under construction followed by the soon to be completed State of the Art Library and Research Centre.For Dr Nikou, the Valedictory dinner was also special due to the fact that the Year 12 Class of 2018 began their secondary education in her first year as principal.“This night of celebrations is a highlight in the school calendar for many students, their parents and their families ” said Dr Nikou.” I am indeed privileged to be able to help shape the experiences that will mould these young men and women into mature, responsible young adults. I have watched them grow over the last six years and seen them seize every opportunity and made it their own.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img
