STATE LANGUAGE EDUCATION STRATEGY CONSULTATION WITH

    GREEK COMMUNITY

The Victorian Government under the leadership of Steve Herbert MP, Parliamentary

    Secretary for Education, has released a discussion paper on a new language education

    strategy for schools in

    Victoria 2010-2020.

John Pandazopoulos, MP and Jenny Mikakos MP have organised Steve Herbert to

    attend a forum to discuss languages education with Victoria’s Greek Community, ndwhich will be held on Monday 22 February at 7.00 pm at the Greek Community building in Russell Street.

“It is imperative that on any discussion for a new strategy on languages that Victoria’s

    large Greek community, have the opportunity to not only be briefed on the discussion

    Paper, but to also have a say” John Pandazopoulos said.

“We are pleased to be joining with the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and

    Victoria on a subject so dear to our hearts as Greek Australians.”

Jenny Mikakos said “Historically, Greek-Australians have been passionate about the

    teaching of second languages as an important way of maintaining one’s heritage in a multicultural society”.

“We have highly talented educators in our community and it is important that we get

    feedback from their own particular expertise”.

The discussion paper can be accessed on:

In agreement with the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria,

    feedback from this forum, will be used as the basis of the Greek communities

    submission to the review.

    “The forum is open to all interested members of the Greek community. Stakeholder groups have been invited. But we want to hear from the broader Greek community,

    and particularly from teachers” John Pandazopoulos said.
