A plaque was also unveiled acknowledging the generous support the school received to complete this facility by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia and the Pancretan Association of Melbourne
This was a very proud day for the Pancretan Association of Melbourne who donated $50k towards the completion of the outdoor sports facility. The Association has always been strongly committed to connecting with and supporting the broader Hellenic community and was honoured by the unveiling of the plaque.
The unveiling occurred during their morning assembly. In attendance was the Consul General of Greece Mr Kakavelakis, Reverend Fathers, President of the Pancretan Association of Melbourne Mr Manolis Starakis accompanied by Mr John Nikolakakis and Mr Tony Tsourdalakis who were welcomed warmly by song and dance.
