To those who think that Greece does not matter today, let me say that they could not make a bigger mistake. Today, like old Greece, is of the utmost importance for anyone looking to find himself.

Henry Miller, 1891-1980, American author

Celebrating the family at ECM Schools

17 May, 2024

As part of the "Bridging generations - Be connected" program, which is being implemented again this year at the Language and Culture Schools of the Greek Community of Melbourne (EKM), on Tuesday 14 May the students of the Bentleigh school unit welcomed their parents, grandparents and their grandmothers, and shared with them a wonderful event, dedicated to the family.

On the occasion of World Family Day, teachers and students prepared a beautiful feast for the honored persons of the evening, the grandmothers and grandfathers of the children, and celebrated with them this important institution with the revival of marriage customs, music, games and educational activities . At the event, teachers, students and grandparents also spoke about their experience of participating in the "Bridging Generations - Be connected" program, implemented by ECM schools, in collaboration with Ms. Christina Daliani and the "Be connected" organizations ” and “Good things foundation”.

The program, which saw students become online mentors for their grandparents, aims to increase older people's confidence, skills and safety when using technology. This is a pioneering action with multiple benefits, both for the elderly, who shared valuable time with their grandchildren and became familiar with the internet, and for the students, who cultivated their empathy and practiced their communication skills in the Greek language.

The student of the school, Athina D., said about it: "I explained to my grandfather things he didn't know about the internet and I showed him how to enter pages that have a theme of gardening, and health that he really likes." "I taught my grandmother how to use skype to communicate with each other, I taught her how to use smart tv as well.

I understood that it is difficult to be a teacher after all," said student Dafni G.
