Campaign to Promote Greek Language in Australia

australia708_0 A campaign entitled “Speak Greek in March” will be launched in early 2015 in Australia with the participation of Diaspora organizations, schools, mass media and all interested parties.

The campaign’s purpose is to preserve and promote the Greek language in Australia and establish March as the month of Greek language. The organizers aim to see Greek spoken at homes, schools, businesses and Diaspora organizations during the month of March. March is the month all Greek festivals take place in Australia in celebrating March 25, 1821, when the Greek war of independence started.

The original idea belongs to Sakis Zafeiropoulos, President of “Fronditha” Aged Care Center and Channel 31. President of the Greek Community of Melbourne Vasilis Papastergiadis immediately adopted the idea. Director of Melbourne’s Homer College Tassos Douvartzides and Community Schools director Manos Tzimpragos, will also be key figures in the campaign.
