Congratulations to 15-year-old Anastasia Rigopoulos, who has recently been announced as the winner of the European Union Delegation to Australia award for ‘Outstanding and Academic Improvement in Greek’.
Anastasia started learning Greek at an early age from her grandparents when they would take care of her.
In primary school, at Lalor North, she was part of the bilingual program.
In 2020, Anastasia topped her class and received the European Union Delegation to Australia award for excellence.
Anastasia says her love for Greek language “has been motivation enough” to keep learning from home during the Covid-19 lockdown. “If I had any issues, I always knew that my awesome and amazing Greek teacher Mrs Helen Ricco was always there to help!”
“Since starting my Greek language journey, l have been privileged to have had the best Greek teachers to assist me in every way. The guidance and the support they have all shown me has always encouraged me to do the best l can!”
