On Saturday, August 12, the President of the Ukrainian World Congress Eugen Czolij and his wife Hania, and the chairman of the Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organisations, Stefan Romaniv, visited our school and took part in our morning assembly.

Eugene Czolij spoke about the role and mission of the Ukrainian World Congress and how the Ukrainian language unites Ukrainians outside Ukraine all over the world, whether they live in Australia, Argentina, Canada, Italy, France, the United States or many other countries.

Then Eugene Czolij asked the students whether they like the Ukrainian Parish School and why. The vast majority of students answered that they do like the school and like to learn Ukrainian language, history and culture.

And in the end, we all honoured the victims of the Holodomor with a minute of silence.

All parents were able to taste our borsch! Comments on the taste and the color of the borsch were very positive.

Many thanks to two wonderful mothers Chrestyna Kogut-Kmetj and Kathryn Flunt, who spent the whole day with us helping to chop vegetables, cooking, cleaning, serving the borsch to parents and finally washing the dishes.

We have made a film in the process providing our recipe and the cooking instructions for our meatless borsch.

We wish you success and bon appétit cooking borsch using our recipe!

Mother’s Day was celebrated at our Parish School on Saturday 13-May-2017.

Following the already well-established tradition the celebration consisted of a moleben prayers in the Cathedral, followed by a concert in the upstairs hall.

This year the Ukrainian community is commemorating 70 years of post-war Ukrainian migration to Australia. Our concert was dedicated to our first migrant mothers and grandmothers.

Parents Committee prepared tea, coffee and sweets, and each mother and grandmother received a chocolate and a lucky ticket. One of those tickets brought a bouquet of flowers for a lucky mum.

Teacher and a professional baker Luda Melnychuk baked and decorated a wonderful cake, which was a great prize for a lucky daughter as a gift to her mother.

We invite you review the photos and the video of the concert.
