On this, all Greek Language Teachers and Greek Education Providers in WA are to be commended for the outstanding results achieved by these candidates! Accolades are also due to the adults and family members who make the effort to speak Greek to each other and/or to their children at home. The positive outcomes of such collective efforts are fruitful and long lasting

Level A1 (for children 8-12) Tuesday 21 May 2019
