Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria’s (GOCMV’s) new tower is up and running. It may not yet be up to speed but offices are being leased and the transition from the temporary Easey Street premises is taking place. However one of the GOCMV’s dedicated levels, the second floor containing four classrooms, is in operational mode. The advanced Greek school campus has already begun classes there every Saturday morning. During the fourth term, it is expected that Modern and Ancient Greek classes for adults will also be conducted from this level during weeknights. Another initiative to commence in term four is that the GOCMV will offer for the first time Beginners Latin for Adults classes. The decision might surprise many, but the GOCMV’s education spokesperson, Nick Dallas, explains the reasoning.“We know that in recent years there has been a resurgence of Latin and there are many out there who have a passion for the classics. With the public seminar series, the lectures on antiquity always draw greater crowds. It is also an attempt to broaden the community’s reach. By offering the teaching of both Classical languages, Ancient Greek and Latin, we want this classroom level buzzing with activity seven days a week. If the pilot program is successful, it will be continued in 2015 and quite possible a separate stream will be offered for high school students like the existing one for Ancient Greek. That these languages are significantly scaled up at VCE level is well known.”Those interested in the upcoming Latin classes can contact the Community on 9662 2722 or [email protected] The first classes are scheduled to begin on Tuesday 7th October at 6.30 pm.
