Description

On 9 February 2023, the International Day of Greek Language, Macquarie University hosted the official award ceremony for school students receiving their 2022 Certificates of Attainment in the Greek Language. 

The Certificate of Attainment in the Greek Language is the only official certification of proficiency, and Macquarie University is the only certified examination centre in NSW, a direct result of an ongoing partnership between the Modern Greek Studies Program at Macquarie and the Centre for Greek Language in Greece. This strengthens the University’s position as a renowned provider of language education, including a successful and extensive Greek Studies Program. 

Approximately 170 people attended the ceremony, including recipients and their families, Greek language teachers from NSW schools, Greek community media, and various distinguished guests including His Grace Bishop Bartholomew of Charioupolis, the Very Reverend Archimandrite of the Ecumenical Throne Fr Christophoros Krikelis and Mr Yannis Mallikourtis, Consul General of Greece in Sydney. Mr Niki Kerameus (Minister of Education and Religious Affairs in Greece) and Mr Theodoros Papaggelis (President of the Centre for the Greek Language in Greece) delivered messages via video.
