Many of you have responded with great interest in attending our Edmonton Conference in October and we are looking forward to having you. With that being said we apologize for any miscommunication of information in regards to Edmonton hosting 2 different conferences.
We are very happy to announce that both Hellenic Language Schools in Edmonton, St.George’s Hellenic Language School and the Hellenic Canadian Community of Edmonton and Region Heritage Language School will be hosting this Event together. As well, we will be working alongside The Hellenic Republic’s Office of Education in Toronto, ON to make this happen.😁
As per the information on our formal invite below, the conference Date of October 14-16, 2016 still remains. We would like to ask that all schools interested in attending or those who would like to confirm their attendance, to please respond by July 30, 2016.
A detailed agenda of Speakers, Presenters and Schedule of events will be provided soon.
There is NO Registration Fee. However, Schools/Communities will be responsible for their own transportation and accommodations for the weekend. A Block of rooms has been reserved for $99/night (Hotel and booking information will be on our detailed agenda). As well, meals will be provided and included with the conference at no cost.
I would like to formally introduce myself, Maria Lekkos-Carrozza, Principal of St. George’s Hellenic Language School and Fotini Kavadas, School Director of the Hellenic Canadian Community of Edmonton and Region Heritage Language School.
We are both very much looking forward to meeting all of you and giving all Western Hellenic Language schools the opportunity to connect and share ideas, stories, and educational material that will allow us to continue to share our Greek Heritage.
Please do not hesitate to email for more information. We hope to see you all in October in Edmonton, AB.
Yours in Education,
Maria Lekkos-Carrozza and Fotini Kavadas
