Please note: This article is in Greek. The Melbourne Greek Community School, 1923–1957: There seems to be some disputation regarding the time of the establishment of the Melbourne Greek community after-hours Greek school. There is a claim that the school started in 1902. All available evidence, however, indicates that the school started in 1923. Initially the Greek people of Melbourne wished to establish an Anglo-Greek Lyceum but that wish was unrealistic because it met with indifference from the State Government and because of lack of sufficient number of students. The Greek afternoon school after 1923 encountered many difficulties which were due to insufficient economic support, political conflict and mismanagement. The first period of the school cover the years from 1923 to 1957, when due to mass immigration after 1952, it became necessary to grow faster and develop suburban branches. This paper aims to examine the development, structure and efficiency of the Greek afternoon school of Melbourne, during its first period.
