YOUR WORDS. YOUR VOICE. Here’s what our readers on Facebook thought about: The Greek Freak Angela Krashos A worthy Greek citizen. He makes a mockery of those who believe Greece is only for Greeks (whatever that means....) Costa Loucopoulos They ARE Greek - what great Greeks.

Who’s eligible and what supports are there for carers?’ PHOTO: PIXABAY The next event is titled 'What is palliative care and what services are offered?

Greek Community of Melbourne launches children’s school holiday program The Greek Community of Melbourne's (GCM) muchloved children's school holiday program is back next month. Situated at Alphington Grammar, the program designed by educators from the GCM's language schools is suitable for children aged 4-11. The program runs from 10.00 am to 2.00 pm, with the possibility of extending hours from 8.30 am to 3.15 pm to accommodate working parents. Children will participate in activities and games that make up a multi-disciplinary educational program featuring interactive storytelling, puppetry, cooking, indoor and outdoor games, dance, and a host of other activities depending on their age. The purpose of the program is to provide other stimuli through tradition, mythology, art and science. Children are given role model! Just a reminder that we should never give up on trying to pursue our dreams no matter what our struggles are. Mary Salatas Such a beautiful and humble person.... aim for the stars Giannis!!! George Tsingos A very deserving recipient! Continued success. Trevor Paterson Too much of exaggeration. Just an African migrant who made it after fleeing poverty, leaving millions of his kind back in their misery, using all the advantages Europe and the USA offer. He doesn’t share neither blood/ancestry eg. phenotype neither history - both glory and defeat with the rest of us Greeks. I’d never feel proud because of him, like I’d never be proud of an Albanian migrant who after coming to Greece may cook the best mousaka in town. Paul Anastasopoulos Champion and gentleman, and pays respect to where he is today by thanking those that have helped him to get to where he is today - and that’s not even mentioning all that hard work done by him! Other sports stars could take note ... not naming names. Vicky Vittoratos So proud of this Greek young man!!! George Tsingos A very deserving recipient! Continued success. A snapshot from a previous holiday program organised by the Greek Community of Melbourne. PHOTO: SUPPLIED the unique opportunity to participate as active listeners, to develop their critical ability, but also their written and spoken word, to communicate and to collaborate, to entertain through the breadth and variety of activities and to express themselves freely and effortlessly, always in Greek. And most importantly, to build friendships and make new friends through the wealth and power of the Greek language.

Panagiotis Litsas (translated) Whatever he did, he did for himself. And I respect that totally. I’m indifferent to it. My life didn’t change for better or worse. He is a worthy child of Nigeria. Kika Mela (translated) He was born in Greece. He grew up in Greece. Greece is the only country he knew. Therefore a worthy child of Greece. He is an inspiration and role model for us all, and especially for youngsters. Therefore, yes, life with such worthy people always changes for the better. Nektaria Tsapaki Congratulations Gianni!
