THE PROMOTION OF GREEK LANGUAGE, CULTURE AND HISTORY
The vision is to initially set up a school for teaching Greek language and culture for children of Greek descent, in Guildford and surrounding environs.
We hope to find interest and support for this in the local Greek community, to develop an institution we are proud of, to serve the Greek and wider community in Guildford and Surrey.

Depending on demand and support, we hope to start running classes, for children 5 to 10 years, as early as September 2020. The aspiration is to support classes, arranged as per pupil age and fluency in Greek.
In parallel to learning Greek, we aim to offer exposure to Greek Culture through projects and other activities including, singing, traditional dance, drama, cultural events.
We wish to support the local Greek community to network and to share with the wider community our rich history and culture.
The school aims to promote the Greek language, culture, traditions and history, through classes, lessons and social activities.
It is being set up as a charitable, non-profit organization, run by a committee of non-salaried Trustees, with funds from tuition fees, sponsors and fundraising.
Formal language lessons will take place in 2 to 4 hour sessions on Saturday morning, based on the curriculum provided by the Greek Ministry of Education, for learning Greek as a foreign language.
Afternoon activities would centre on a structured project eg a play, traditional dance, concert, painting etc
Lessons are delivered by a qualified teacher.
