I would like to wish you all a happy and a productive school year.
I am pleased to announce that a worthy colleague Dr. Maria Harissi is taking over as a Greek Language Advisor at the DoE. Dr Harissi was recently seconded to Sydney by the Hellenic Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs.
I would like to welcome her and wish her every success in her work. I am positive that she will have the full cooperation of all and the opportunity to make a substantial contribution to the progress of the Greek language in NSW.
I will keep trying my best to support the Greek Language and help in any way that I can.
I take the opportunity to thank you all for your cooperation. I would particularly like to thank my colleagues at the Learning and Teaching Directorate of the NSW Ministry of Education: Amanda Davis, Nina Conomos, Sana Zreika, Dominic Crisafulli, Elisabeth Robertson, Vera Szyjan and Janelle Byrne, for their constant support, guidance and feedback.
Maintaining and promoting the Greek language in NSW schools, as we all know, can be challenging but well worth-while and your contribution in this endeavour is valuable.
