  • [01] Greek Academy in Harare

    The newly built Hellenic Academy complex has begun partial operation in Harare, Zimbabwe, opening its doors for 76 high school students attending the first grade. A physics and chemistry lab is also available as well as a computer classroom and a library, while construction work continues until the entire project is completed. The inauguration ceremony was held in the presence of Metropolite Georgios of Zimbabwe, the ambassadors of Greece and Cyprus and the president of the Greek community in Harare. The Metropolite conveyed the wishes of Patriarch Theodore II of Alexandria and All Africa and thanked the Greek government, Archbishop Chrysostomos of Cyprus and Greek businessman Petros Kyriakidis for financing the project. A total of 450 schoolchildren, 92 of them of Greek descent, are currently registered in the Greek Elementary School and 45 in the Greek Kindergarten School. The Greek language is taught in all three schools by teachers dispatched to Zimbabwe by the Greek ministry of education.

    [03] Sarkozy link to Thessaloniki

    The launch of a book on French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his ties with the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki took place on Monday evening, hosted by the Kastaniotis publishing house.

    The book "I, the grandson of a Greek - Nicolas Sarkozy's Thessaloniki", is written by George Anastasiadis, Leon Nar and Christos Raptis.

    The launch was attended by Tourism Development Minister Aris Spiliotopoulos, who pointed out that Sarkozy is a self-made and younger generation politician. He described him as visionary, spirited and charismatic, introducing a new model of democratic leader who dares to transcend dividing lines.

    Speaking at the book launch, Greek MPs referred to Sarkozy's ties with Thessaloniki, given that his mother was born to the Mallah family, one of the oldest Jewish families of the city.
