"I started studying Greek in Year 11. At first I found it challenging and different to studying other languages, especially because of the alphabet but then I got used to it. My Greek has improved so much and I can hold a conversation in Greek now. I may even pick it up at university, depending on which course I do," says Stephanie Kritikos.
"I began Classical Greek studies in Year 8 and I loved it from then. I think it's one of the most beautiful cultures in the world and I want to continue learning about the Greek language and culture. I actually hope to learn the Modern Greek language and eventually go to Greece and experience and see some of what I've learnt over the years. I loved learning about Greek history, mythology, the historical events- all the wonderful stories that are so interconnected. There was never a dull moment, I felt there was always something interesting to learn, I loved it all. I play soccer with lots of mates of Greek background and I hope they are proud of me!" says Maxwell Glanville.
