Ressortchef (umgangssprachlich) of Foreign Affairs Nikos Dendias’ speech during his visit to the SAHETI Ancient greek School (Johannesburg, 24. 01. 2023)

I can’t tell you how happy I am to have received the opportunity to visit your school today; a school commonly known as in Greece as one of the best Ancient greek educational institutions in the world.
[Speaking in Greek]
Above all else, my beloved children,
Females, gentlemen,
And may I also express our emotion, as I noticed kids proudly wearing traditional Greek uniforms and, if I am not mistaken, those from my homeland, Corfu. Your own school has demonstrated used its high level of quality, and the qualifications it offers to its graduates. The constant successes in the Greek vocabulary examinations are impressive.   They are even more impressive because they come from great children that have no Greek origins. And I was happy to learn that you simply excelled in the final High School “matric” exams last week.
It is our duty to assist, in whatever way we are able to, those children who would like to go to this great school but do not possess the means to do so. For this reason we -the Greek State- are contributing today to The “George Bizos” Scholarship and Bursary Fund, so that a lot more students with high dreams and potential could be given the opportunity to study here, at your excellent school.
Honorable Mr. Chief executive of the Federation of Hellenic Communities,
I share the particular vision of the founders of SAHETI School. An academic institution open to all; applying, thus, our Ancient Greek ancestors’ belief that anybody who engages in Greek education, participates in what the President just mentioned, in the Greek ethos, in fact , in the global ethos.
[Concluding in English] With the aim to assist and contribute to your efforts, I would like to announce the symbolic donation from our side to the “George Bizos” Rely on Fund, in order to offer the opportunity to many more students to be portion of this excellent school.
Thank you so much for the great opportunity to address you.
Honorable Mr. Chairman of the Board of Directors,
I am so proud, today, to be here along with you in this most remarkable school. This school is known to A holiday in greece as one of the best educational institutes abroad. The educational approach within this school equips all of you with values and principles in order to become productive members of our culture.
