I would like to welcome you all back to another academic year. I would like to acknowledge once again in this welcoming message the contribution of all Greek language teachers during 2019, and express my hope for an educationally rewarding 2020.
I would also like to extend a special welcome to a new teacher seconded from Greece, Mrs Maria Mouratidou, whom some colleagues might have already met in their schools during Week 1.
Please accept my very best wishes for the start of the 2020 school year. I am looking forward to working with you all again building on past achievements and planning new projects such as the 2020 Greek language conference.
