The event, organized by the Board of the GCM, aimed to bring together all the students and parents of the wider Greek community, in a celebration where not only their academic achievements would be recognized, but also the vigour, grace and optimism that they’ve shown the last two years of school, which were full of unique challenges and uncertainty.
At the ceremony were awarded all the VCE students of the GCM’s Greek Language and Culture School, who had a score above 40 and sat the lesson of Modern Greek. The number of students was extremely high this year.
An award also received the VCE student Dimitris Papadopoulos, who sat the lesson of Modern Greek through the Greek program that is taught at the public school of Strathmore Secondary College, and who received a grade of 40.
Finally, students of Greek origin, who received a high ATAR, were awarded. Among them, the first of the first, Peter Frangos, a student of Melbourne Grammar School, brought the excellent ATAR 99.95, which is the highest score in the state of Victoria.
