Welcome to all students, parents and friends,

“Aristotelis” Greek Language Education is a Community based, exclusive and independent educational institution operating from a number of locations in Sydney.
We are all very proud of “Aristotelis” Greek Language Education and we know you will learn a great deal about our school from the Handbook and Study Guide (under Quick Links).

There is information about our school philosophy, our high-quality programs, curriculum, policies, our staff and what students will be learning at each level of study.
The school operates on a professional basis, although it is an afternoon and Saturday school, with fully qualified staff, strict adherence to the Community Languages Program of the NSW Department of Education & Training guidelines, and full implementation of the NSW Board of Studies syllabus.

We are commencing the 2011 school year on a brighter note with the operation of a new location in Gymea at the Gymea North Public School every Tuesday or any other day that would be suitable to parents and students in the area.

We anticipate operating the following locations at the specific days and times, yet these are all subject to the number of enrolments. In smaller locations, parent and caregivers may choose the day of operation if we have teachers available on those given days:

CARLINGFORD – Roselea Public School:
North Rocks Road
Wednesdays: 3.50 - 5.50pm

MANLY – Balgowlah Boys High School Campus:
Maretimo St., Balgowlah
Thursdays : 4.30 - 6.30pm (Times to be confirmed)

CONCORD – Strathfield North Public School:
Concord Road
Fridays : 4.30 - 6.45 pm
Tuesdays : 6.00 – 8.00pm (adult class, to be confirmed)

WEST RYDE – West Ryde Public School:
Endeavour Street
Saturdays: 10.30am - 1.00pm (Times to be confirmed)

GYMEA - Gymea North Public School
Ruby Rd
Tuesdays: 4.00 - 6.00 pm (Times to be confirmed)

This year we will continue our focus on engaging our students in authentic real-life educational activities. We are also focusing on effective effort as the most important ingredient for success in learning Greek.

Our students supply the motivation to work hard and the staff teaches them the strategies to work smart and achieve better results.
We say to our students, "Learning Greek is fun and easy. You can do it - we will always be there for you."

In 2010, our students were exposed to a number of exciting learning experiences and were able to perform to the best of their abilities. This is evident in the results shown from our assessment and evaluation strategies and from students' increased enthusiasm towards learning Greek.
The end of year festivities and awards presentation in all locations were extremely successful and the parent-caregiver turnout was exciting and pleasing for both students and staff.

Thank you all for your enthusiastic involvement in the school activities, which provide the impetus to students to engage more thoroughly and vigorously in the learning of the Greek language.

A key objective of the future must be to continue providing passion and pride in learning Greek at “Aristotelis” Greek Language Education, through the highest quality and flexible provision of education.

Since 2007, “Aristotelis” Greek Language Education has been producing the Study Guide, which incorporates Policies & Procedures, to assist both parents and students in establishing a better work practice with specific outcomes.

As a school recognised by the Community Languages Program of the NSW Education Department & Training, the school must comply with all the requirements to be eligible for the per capita funding and continue to operate within the legislation and parameters set by the appropriate authorities.In meeting these obligations, “Aristotelis” will serve as an educational resource centre and will further strengthen personal communication with parents and students.

Let us work together now sensitively yet confidently, building on the best of our achievements so far, to make 2011 the best year in the School’s history and a major pivot in our long-term future.
