Melbourne has the largest Greek population of any city in the world outside of Greece and Cyprus. Discontinuing this program would be a huge disadvantage to Melburnians.

My grandfather, Con Yiamiadakis, worked so hard for the Greek education community. He would be turning in his grave. 

We would like to save the Greek Modern Language at La Trobe University. It needs to stay.

Modern Greek is by no means a language of the past but of the now and the future . I believe that it must be taught at La trobe as it has strong routes in the community.

In 1980 I was invited to come to Melbourne to support minority languages in particular Greek. It's sad to see this happening now.

Greek is not only an important community language it’s also a language that is embedded in so many others - including English - and forms an important part of our own and world heritage.
