Greek Studies & Greek Dance
All students from Kindergarten to Year 6 participate in a Modern Greek Studies programme. In Kindergarten and Pre-Primary, a specialist teacher integrates Greek into the weekly programme.
In Years 1, 2 and 3 a specialist teacher takes three sessions a week and ensures there is a focus on speaking, reading and writing through music, poetry, games, hands-on activities and role play.
In Years 4 to 6, the classes are taken by two specialist teachers who work collaboratively to provide a differentiated curriculum that caters for the levels of all students. Again, there is a focus on speaking, reading and writing using a variety of activities to motivate and engage the students.
There is also a focus on Greek culture and each class participates in Greek dance on a fortnightly basis. Throughout the year there are class assemblies and special assemblies that feature important historical days in the Greek calendar where students present items in both English and Greek.
