In 2020, the Centre for the Greek Language (CGL) Examinations, normally held in May each year, were postponed world-wide due to COVID-19. They were re-scheduled to take place in October and, with strict social distancing measures in place, the examinations took place over four days at St. Andrew’s Grammar. The following 18 candidates were successful in their respective level:
A1 (8-12 year olds)
Statistically, the following grades were achieved overall:
Excellent: 11 candidates (61.1%)
Very Good: 6 candidates (33.3%)
Good: 1 candidate (5.6%)
Congratulations are extended to the candidates, their Greek language teachers and schools, and their families!
I extend my thanks to the Principal, Mr Craig Monaghan, and staff of St. Andrew’s Grammar for accommodating the CGL Examinations at the School last year, as has been the case since the examinations were first offered in 2005.
My special thanks go to fellow CGL Committee member, Mrs Katerina Reklitis, who assisted me over the four days with the invigilation of the examinations, and in co-marking the oral component. The examination papers were dispatched to Greece at the end of the examination week, where they were marked. The CGL in Thessaloniki, Greece, will send the certificates for the successful candidates in late March.
