Welcome 2018/19 Students! 

The Hellenic Community School of Calgary was first established in 1963 to teach, preserve and promote the Greek language to children of Greek descent. Maintaining our language and culture is just as important to our community today as it was back then. Making sure our future generations know about the immense accomplishments and contributions that their ancestors made to the world at large is fundamental to creating pride in our Hellenic heritage. Building a connection to our language, our customs and our community is what makes our Hellenic community grow. A key component of helping to build that connection is our Greek Community School. 

The school offers classes for children from Preschool to level 6, and Greek Language and Culture 15, 25, & 35 for students who want to advance their Greek and obtain credits for their high school matriculation.

Being the Principal of Greek School for the past few months has been an honor. Even though a few things have been quite challenging, the sense of support that I am receiving gives me strength to continue working and fostering the Greek language to our students.

At this point, I would like to acknowledge the contribution of staff, parents and students to our School in 2018.

Walt Disney once said “You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality”.  The reality is that the learning experiences and projects that have taken place this year could not have happened without a great deal of commitment and support from the staff, parents and students.

Our teachers are privileged to participate in their student’s academic journey.  They recognize and applaud just how hard their students try. They celebrate their students’ achievements whether they are great or small and they share with pride the progress their students make with their learning.

I would like to wish all of our Greek School’s Parents, Students and Friends a Safe, Happy and Holy Christmas holiday season. See you all on January 9th and January 12th.
