Last Saturday I had the pleasure of attending the Finchley Manorhill Greek School annual dinner and dance. The school is now based at Ravenscroft School, recently judged excellent by Ofstead – thanks to the wonderful Head teacher, Mary Karaolis and her team. The evening was raising fund for the voluntary school but what impressed me was the age range of the students taking part in the display of Greek dancing. From toddlers to teenagers – they all took pride in displaying their skill. As well as learning traditional Greek dancing the students learn Greek – all in their own time. An evening a week and a Saturday morning are sacrificed to learn about their cultural heritage. Youth often get a bad press because of a small minority but voluntary and community groups do so much to keep our youth engaged. So well done Ravenscroft and the Greek School.
