What just happened ?! Nikos Kourkoulis performs at St George College!

Our children received a special treat yesterday – a live performance from singer Nikos Kourkoulis! Nikos has visited South Australia especially to put on performances at the Glendi Greek Festival this weekend (check out the program here). Nikos Kourkoulis was kind enough to visit St George College in the early afternoon yesterday. He put on a breath taking performance for our students! In the audience was our Very Reverend Father Patsouris, Presvytera Anna Patsouris, Andreas Gouras (Consul General of Greece in Adelaide and Dean of the Consular Corps of SA) and Gina Kadis (Principal of St George College). The surprise performance stunned both students and staff – it was the perfect end to a hard week of studying! Nikos gave an inspiring introduction to our children by speaking of his origins, his own dreams and the importance of having passion in everything that we do.     Nikos Kourkoulis, Νίκος Κουρκούλης, was born in Kavala, a city in Northern Greece. Nikos was fortunate as he was born to a family passionate about music and so he began singing when he was just 13 years old. Nikos also learned to play the bouzouki, guitar and bass. At 16 years old, he started to sing at clubs and a few years later he was performing with many well known Greek singers. He released his first album in 1997. Some of our staff are even claiming that they will never again wash the body area where they were touched by Nikos! As soon as he entered the room, Nikos’ natural energy commanded attention and his presence had a powerful effect on our children. His warm and caring personality shone through and his fun loving and joyous...

Remembrance Day Assembly

Remembrance Day was observed yesterday with a dedicated Assembly to the historically significant date of 11 November. The tradition recalls the end of hostilities of World War I on 11 November, 1918. Hostilities formally ended “at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month”, in accordance with the armistice signed by nation representatives. At the end of the First World War poppies were the only plants to grow on the barren battlefields in Northern France and Flanders. Our teachers delivered specially developed resources to help children understand the significance of the day and the resilience of those who have fought for their country. Children are called upon to show similar such resilience when facing difficult times. The “Last Post” was sounded by a bugler and we all observed a moment of silence – waiting for the bugler recital to finish delivering its powerful and lasting message.
