Blessing Ceremonies Mark the Start of the New Academic Year

The College welcomed its students for the new 2019-2020 academic year with the traditional Blessing Ceremonies at the Elementary, Junior High and High Schools, as well as at “John M. Carras” Kindergarten. The Ceremony for the Athens College and Psychico College Elementary Schools was held at the “Alexander Athanasiadis” Stadium in Kantza. It was followed by brief greetings and good wishes by members of the School’s Administration and Directorate.

The Right Reverend Metropolitan of Nea Ionia and Filadelfia, Gabriel officiated at the Blessing Ceremony for Athens College and Psychico College Junior High and High Schools that took place in the courtyard of Benaki Hall.  The Right Reverend read a message from Archbishop Ieronymos who offered good wishes for the new academic year to the students of the College.

At “John M. Carras” Kindergaten, the young students joyfully, albeit a bit anxiously, parted ways with their families and became better acquainted with their “second home” and the College family who warmly welcomed them into the fold.
