Invitation to Forthcoming Book Launch

St. Andrew’s Greek Orthodox Grammar School &
The Hellenic Community of Western Australia
Cordially invite you to celebrate the publication of

"Teaching at Home, Teaching Abroad:
A New Theory for Languages Education"

By Dr Angela Evangelinou-Yiannakis

 

A longitudinal study of the teaching of Greek as a second language in WA under the ‘Seconded Teachers from Greece Scheme’, this book holds relevance for all stakeholders in the field of Languages Education. The book reports on a study that set out to address a deficit in current research on the ‘Seconded Teachers from Greece Scheme’ in WA and how the key stakeholders dealt with the curriculum for teaching Modern Greek as a second language under this scheme. The study resulted in a theory that provides a new way of thinking about Languages Education. The theory is also transferable to other disciplines wherein teachers leave their homeland to travel abroad to teach.

It is with great pride that I announce the success of every candidate in this year’s Centre for the Greek Language (CGL) Examinations, held at St. Andrew’s Grammar in May. All 22 candidates achieved their respective level with wonderful results! Furthermore, it is the first time that we have had so many candidates sit for these examinations; surpassing the previous record of 19 candidates in 2007. This can be attributed partly to the Berbatis Bursary which has made it possible for more candidates to undertake this important academic endeavour. As such, gratitude is extended to the Berbatis family for the generous provision of this Bursary.

The following CGL Examination levels were achieved by the respective candidates in 2015:

Dear Friends of St. Andrew's Grammar,

Welcome to the Greek Studies electronic newsletter 'Hermes' which will be published at least once each term by Greek Studies staff and students.

Its purpose is to provide information about the development and progress of students in Modern Greek Language and Greek cultural experiences from Kindergarten to Year 12 and to provide an opportunity for student work to be published and shared.

You will notice from reading the magazine, there have been many impressive developments in the Greek Studies programme during 2015.

A significant development has been the establishment of bursaries by the Berbatis Family to support families experiencing financial hardship. Bursary recipients are required to study the Modern Greek Language at St Andrew's Grammar with the intention of increasing the proportion of students studying Modern Greek at the ATAR level in future years.

Fifteen bursaries for 2015 have been allocated and we thank the Berbatis family for their generosity. Further details of this significant contribution will be provided in the coming weeks with a feature article in our next Hermes publication.

Thank you to Greek Studies staff, Mr Pavlos Iosifidis, Mrs Katerina Reklitis, Ms Betty Parissis, Ms Katina Maounis and Ms Magda Hasapopoulos for their initiative, enthusiasm and dedication in establishing Hermes.

We look forward to exhibiting the work of our students and providing an informative insight to the progress of the Greek Studies programme at St. Andrew's Grammar via the e-newsletter.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Simon Midson

St. Andrew's Grammar School in Dianella has joined Perth's elite schools in creating a multi- million dollar modern sporting complex. In March 2015, the City of Stirling approved a $2 million gymnasium facility. The complex will be built next to an AFL size sports oval and the new Andrew and Maria Petrelis Amphitheatre. The Gymnasium caters for a range of sports including: Basketball, Netball, Volleyball, Badminton and Indoor Soccer. A full size classroom for Physical Education theory and change rooms are also part of this exceptional project.

The Hellenic Community of Western Australia President Gary Mitchell welcomes this new facility: 'I am utterly delighted with the positive growth and directions at St Andrew's Grammar. Enormous thanks must go to the Berbatis Family together with the members of the Hellenic Community, who have completely embraced the School and have afforded the opportunity to progress the School's facilities with the construction of the new sports facility.'

The Gymnasium has also been designed to cater for Assemblies and Theatre Performances and further expansion of the complex will occur in the future. St. Andrew's Grammar Board Chair Marcelle Anderson has expressed the significance of the Gymnasium project for the School: 'The Hellenic mantra of a healthy mind in a healthy body has been borne out by modern research which shows that physical activity improves learning ability. The Sports Facility will provide for the sporting, health and fitness needs of our students as well as accommodating school events such as assemblies, prize nights and fundraising activities. The School Board and community thank the Berbatis family for its very generous donation which has moved the Sports Facility from concept to reality.'

Designed by T&Z Architects as part of their long lasting relationship with the School, the Gymnasium is another extensive educational work that T&Z has carried out in both the public and private sectors. Project architect Jeremy Feldhusen identified the importance of the project in relation to surrounding facilities: "While primarily a sports hall the building is a multipurpose facility forming an integral 'piece of the puzzle' to the eastern edge of the campus". Metrowest Constructions Pty Ltd. is the successful tenderer of the project. The Gymnasium has a world class synthetic sports floor that provides a durable surface with excellent shock absorption. Metrowest General Manager Mark Lewington is pleased to 'build on its strong record of delivering educational facilities' in Western Australia .

The students of St. Andrew's Grammar look forward to the Gymnasium with excitement and anticipation. The Gymnasium will provide a great opportunity to further enhance the School's rapidly developing sport programme.
