“When your children are still small, you have to help them understand what is good. That is the deepest meaning of life.”
Welcome from the Principal
Dear parents, students and friends,
We welcome you to the Greek Language and Culture Institute of Evangelismos (GLCI), a new school that will operate under the auspices and support of the Greek Orthodox Community of WA (Evangelismos).
Our school continues a long and proud tradition at the Evangelismos community, of teaching the Greek language and culture for over 50 years, with former students bringing their own children to attend.
The purpose of the school is the teaching of the Greek language and culture with the use of advanced teaching/learning approaches, strategies and technology, to all Hellenes and philhellenes/non-Greek background students in Perth who are interested in retaining or finding their Greek identity. We intend to instil in our students the values of our culture through the understanding and use of the language.
Additionally to the classroom teaching, activities such as excursions, visits to museums and universities, cultural performances, collaborations with schools from Greece, participation in various language contests and cooking lessons will be provided. Older students will be strongly encouraged to take part in the annual Centre for the Greek Language (CGL) examinations at various levels for the Certificate of Attainment in Greek, the only officially recognised certificate by the Greek Ministry of Education that confirms the knowledge of Greek as a second language.
GLCI aspires to realise the vision for a model school, worthy of your expectations and our children’s demands children for learning the Greek language. GLCI is staffed with several very experienced Greek teachers and management experts who are active in the field of education with international success and above all, are characterised by their passion for our Greek language and culture.
We are very happy to announce that the GLCI will be hosted at the wonderful ECU Mount Lawley campus (2 Bradford St, Mount Lawley WA 6050). When you put “ECU Mount Lawley” in Google Maps, you will find yourself in the parking lot exactly outside the classrooms.
First day of school: Saturday February 5th, 2022, 9:00am-12:30pm.
Our motto is that “Your children are our children” and we intend to teach them in an environment where they will all feel at home.
We cater to students of all ages between 4 and 18 years old and we hope to soon be able to offer lessons for adults as well.
