During the 1990s, Pantanassa Monastery undertook an initiative to publish books on topics such as Greek History–Mythology, Ancient Greek History, Modern Greek History and the Geography of Greece. The books were summaries of the OAED school books which were originally offered free of charge to the Greek Afternoon Schools. The summary books were designed to assist and better inform those teaching in our Greek Afternoon Schools.

The writing and publishing of these new summary books was made possible through special funding granted to our School Committee by the New South Wales Department of Education and Youth Affairs – Ethnic Schools Program. This granted covered 50% of the cost and the balance of the funds were provided by our Holy Monastery. Our Monastery also supervised the entire project including authoring and printing. The development, corrections and editing of the texts were carried out by philologists-teachers of the Education Office within the Greek Consulate of Sydney, together with members of our School Committee.

With great pleasure, we now provide these books free of charge to any interested person or organisation who would like to utilise them in the sacred task of TEACHING THE GREEK LANGUAGE to Greek Orthodox Children within our community. This was the only purpose of the entire endeavour, although it was never properly acknowledged by those who were responsible at that time. 

We only have one request, that when the materials are used there be an appropriate reference to the origins of the materials.

We pray that the Lord bless all your efforts and sacrifices in this significant field of teaching the Greek language to our children.

May you have a blessed School Year.

THE HOLY MONASTERY OF PANTANASSA

P.S. In 1995, our Monastery moved to its current address and was re-named by His Eminence our Archbishop as the ‘Holy Monastery of Pantanassa’. Our church building in Sydney became a parish of our Archdiocese and retained the name ‘The Transfiguration of the Lord’.

Κατά την δεκαετία του 90α  με πρωτοβουλία της Μονής μας, για τη βοήθεια και την πληρέστερη ενημέρωση των εργαζομένων στα Απογευματινά Σχολεια, έγινε η συγγραφή, έκδοση και κυκλοφορία βιβλίων, τα οποία είναι περίληψη των σχολικών βιβλίων του ΟΑΕΔ, της Ιστορίας–Μυθολογίας, Αρχαίας Ιστορίας, Ελληνικής Ιστορίας Των Νεοτέρων Χρόνων, και Γεωργαφίας Ελλαδος, που προσφέρονται εντελώς δωρεάν προς τα Ομογενειακά Απογευματινά Σχολεία, εμπλουτισμένων με σχετικές ερωτήσεις και σειρά σκίτσων και φωτογραφιών.

Η εργασία έγινε δυνατή κατόπιν ειδικής χορηγήσεως προς την τότε Σχολική μας Επιτροπή από το 'NSW Department of Education and Youth Affairs – Ethnic Schools Programme', η οποία εκάλυψε το ήμισυ του κόστους της όλης εργασίας. Τα υπόλοιπα έξοδα εκάλυψε η Ιερά μας Μονή.

Την όλη διαδικασία (οργάνωση, συγγραφή, εκτύπωση και παρακολούθηση της όλης εργασίας) ανέλαβε η Ιερά μας Μονή. Η αναπτυξη, διορθώσεις και βελτίωση των κειμένων έγιναν από καθηγητές φιλολόγους του Γραφείου Εκπαιδευτικού Συμβούλου Του Γενικού Προξενείου του Συδνευ και από μέλη της Σχολικής μας Επιτροπής.

Ευχαρίστως τα διαθέτουμε σε κάθε ενδιαφερόμενο φορέα, που θα επιθυμούσε να τα χρησιμοποιήσει στο ιερό έργο ΤΗΣ ΔΙΔΑΣΚΑΛΙΑΣ ΤΗΣ ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΗΣ ΓΛΩΣΣΑΣ στα Ελληνορθόδοξα βλαστάρια της Παροικίας μας. Αυτός ήταν ο ένας και μοναδικός σκοπός της όλης προσπάθειας, ο οποίος δεν αναγνωρίστηκε τότε επαρκώς από τους τότε αρμόδιους.

Παρακαλούμε, οσάκις χρησιμοποιούνται τα εν λόγω βοηθήματα, να γίνεται η σχετική και πρέπουσα αναφορά της προέλευσης αυτών.

Ευχόμαστε πλούσια την ευλογία του Κυρίου για τους κόπους και τις θυσίες που καταβάλλετε για την εθνική τούτη προσπάθεια της διδασκαλίας της Ελληνικής γλώσσας στα παιδιά μας.

Ευλογημένη Σχολική χρονιά να έχετε.

ΙΕΡΑ ΜΟΝΗ ΠΑΝΤΑΝΑΣΣΗΣ

Υ.Γ. Από το 1995, μετά τη μετακίνηση της Μονής μας στην παρούσα μας διεύθυνση, μετωνομάσθη από τον Σεβασμιώτατον Αρχιεπισκοπό μας «ΙΕΡΑ ΜΟΝΗ ΠΑΝΑΓΙΑΣ ΤΗΣ ΠΑΝΤΑΝΑΣΣΗΣ». Ο Ιερός μας ναός στο Σύδνευ διετήρησε το όνομα «ΜΕΤΑΜΟΡΦΩΣΗ ΤΟΥ ΣΩΤΗΡΟΣ» και μετετράπη σε Ενορία με το αυτό όνομα.

During the 1990s, through an initiative of our Monastery designed to assist and more fully inform those working in the Afternoon Schools, books were written, published and distributed, which were summaries of the school books of the OAED on topics such as History–Mythology, Ancient History, Modern Greek History and the Geography of Greece, which are offered completely free of charge to the Greek Afternoon Schools, with the embellishment of relevant questions and a series of sketches and photographs.

 

This project was made possible through special funding towards our School Committee at that time provided by the NSW Department of Education and Youth Affairs – Ethnic Schools Programme, which covered half of the total costs.  The remaining expenses were paid by our holy Monastery.
The entire process (organisation, authoring, printing and supervision of the project) was undertaken by our holy Monastery. The development, corrections and editing of the texts were carried out by philologists-teachers of the Education Office within the Greek Consulate of Sydney, together with members of our School Committee.
With great pleasure, we provide them free of charge to any interested person or organisation who would like to to utilise them in the sacred task of teaching the Greek language to Greek Orthodox children within our community. This was the only purpose of the entire endeavour, although it was never properly acknowledged by those who were responsible at that time. 
We therefore request that there be a corresponding and appropriate reference to the origins of these materials whenever they are used. 
We pray for the abundant blessing of the Lord for the efforts and sacrifices you are making in this signicant field of teaching the Greek language to our children.
May you have a blessed School Year
