October 27, 2019

BROOKLYN – With poems, songs, speeches, and theatrical presentations, October 28th was celebrated by the A. Fantis Parochial School in Brooklyn on October 24, with proud parents and grandparents present.

Fr. Evagoras Constantinides, the Dean of the Cathedral of Sts. Constantine and Helen, spoke with The National Herald about the event and referred to the importance of Greek national holidays, which, he said, provide children with the opportunity to learn the traditions, customs, and values ??of Hellenism and Orthodoxy.

He said, “I think it is very important to give Greeks born here the opportunity to know and learn the glorious history of their home country. It is our responsibility and duty to support with all our strength the Community schools for the sacred work they do.”

The school’s principal, Theodore Tasoulas, thanked the teachers of the Hellenic Studies Department, Ioanna Glava, Anastasios Gementzopoulos, Artemis Chalkiopoulos, Thania Stavropoulou, and Penelope Anastasiadis for their excellent work, the school board and its members for their support, and the parents for their continuing help. He also thanked all those who attended the event and above all the students for the diligence and effort they put in.

The head of the Hellenic Studies Department, Ioanna Glava, wished everyone all the best for the OXI Day holiday and noted the need to preserve and disseminate history, traditions, and customs.

Teacher Anastasios Gementzopoulos highlighted the effort made for the good of the students and their progress.

“It is a great joy,” he said. “We are seeing our school grow with more and more students each year. We have a very promising outlook for the future of Hellenism here in America.”
