17th Symposium

Our Community organises every autumn an Annual Symposium.

We usually invite 2-3 speakers who talk on a general theme of common interest.

This year we had our 17th Symposium, dedicated to: “The Hellenic Education in the modern era”.

Fr. Anastasios and Mr. Pantelis Demosthenous offered the Community’s greetings.

His Grace Bishop Gregorios of Mesaoria (Church of Cyprus) was the first speaker.

He talked on: “The pastoral work of the Church in Education and especially in the time of modern technology and internet”.

Then Mr. Savvas Pavlides, who is in charge of the Cyprus Educational Mission in Great Britain, talked on: “The Hellenic Community Education in the United Kingdom”.

The teacher Mrs. Nicky Andreou talked also on: “The material of the programme «Education for Greeks Abroad»”.

Dr. Serafim Kiriakidis was on the chair of the Symposium.

After the talks there was a lively discussion and many people expressed their views on the matter.

Then all participants were invited to dinner offered by our Community at the Community Hall.
