BROOKLYN, NY – The Greek school of Plato in Brooklyn celebrated Christmas with a spectacular program on December 22.
The students presented the traditions and customs of modern and ancient Greece in a production, directed and choreographed by the school’s Principal Petros Fourniotis, which elicited enthusiastic applause from the audience.
In his welcoming remarks, Fourniotis thanked the guests who honored the celebration with their presence, congratulated the teachers and students for their dedication and efforts and wished 2023 to be a year full of progress and prosperity.
He added: “On these holy days, I feel gratitude not only for my family and friends, but for the entire family of the Plato School. Educating children in our language and culture is not an easy task, but we face all the difficulties and challenges successfully because we are united and beloved in a common purpose.”
School Board member Stavroula Christakos expressed through The National Herald everyone’s joy and pride for the school’s progress and thanked the parents, teachers, principal, parents’ association and board, who remain, as she said, the guardians and protectors of the heritage.
Parents’ Association President Theodora Mastorakis thanked all the members for their help and contribution, the donors and sponsors and wished them health, joy, a merry Christmas and all the best for a better tomorrow.
