Promoting An Enriching And Fun Learning Environment
Parents are recognized as partners in the education of their child(ren), since they are making a conscious decision to have their child(ren) learn the Greek language, customs, and traditions. In all school locations, the language curriculum will be taught in the format of levels. In total there are eight (8) levels, created into three broad categories, (Primary, Junior, Intermediate). Detailed information for each level including our school’s vision, learning philosophy – is outlined in the guide, Learning Keys for Success.
Parents are invited to communicate and dialogue with teachers on an ongoing basis, to learn of accomplishments, and how to continue supporting their child(ren). Key guidelines and responsibilities for parents and students to be mindful of include:
Parents Drop off children 5 minutes before class begins and be outside the classroom at least 5 minutes before class ends.
Send a healthy snack & drink to school. Encourage and remind students not to share their snacks, without the teacher’s knowledge (due to various and potentially lethal allergies).
Inform the teacher(s) of any medical conditions (fill and sign medical information form).
Advise the teacher(s) in advance, if child(ren) will be absent due to event, recital, sports.
Inquire about homework to be completed.
Attend parent-teacher interviews, twice a year (January and May), to learn what child(ren) accomplished.
Support and encourage on-going learning outside the school environment to form positive attitudes towards learning the Greek language and completing assigned homework.
Provide school supplies (pencils; pencil sharpener; eraser; crayons, pencil crayons; exercise books).
Advise child(ren) that cell phones/personal electronic devices and game equipment are not allowed in class, including favourite toys (except if requested by the teacher).
Students come prepared to each class with assigned homework and supplies (pens, pencils, paper, notebooks, and workbooks).
Be respectful to teacher(s) and other students.
Be respectful of classroom material, furniture, and equipment.
Behave in a non-disruptive manner towards other students and teacher(s). For example, walking in the classroom, putting up hand to get teachers’ attention, no calling out answers, no talking to others across the room. Demonstrate non-offensive behaviour and/or language. Name calling, swearing, hitting, pushing, offensive facial expressions
If disruptive behaviour continues, teachers will advise the parent(s) at the end of the class. If the behaviour is very disruptive, parents will be contacted to come and pick up their child(ren).

Aims and Purposes
The purpose of our Greek Orthodox Christian Education Sunday School classes is to educate the children of our Community on the Orthodox values and the way of life that God wishes us to have. We do this through believing, praying, learning and serving. We are able to do this through our different age level of classes by providing age appropriate curriculum with enthusiastic Instructors.
