Sydney students who excelled in Greek awarded by the Education Minister
Well done everyone!
Last week the top students who came first in their course for HSC 2016 subjects were named and awarded a certificate by Education Minister Adrian Piccoli.
- Stephanie Kritikos from Open High School received an award for Modern Greek Beginners
- Panagiota Naya Damigou from Saturday School of Community Languages St George Girls HS Centre received a certificate for Modern Greek Continuers
- Maxwell Glanville from Sydney Grammar School excelled in the Classical Greek Continuers category
- Fotina Bouranta from Saturday School of Community Languages Ashfield Boys HS Centre received a Modern Greek Extension distinction
- Mark Henry Rothery from St Ignatius' College was awarded for his performance in Classical Greek Extension.
"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.
