    Andrea was a well-respected person within the Greek Cypriot community, who with his endless efforts and devotion to educate our children in their culture and their language had always been very apparent.

    As a parent I thank you Andrea. You have served your community well and may you now rest in peace knowing that you have done just that.

    I had the honour of serving with Andrea on the Hazelwood Greek school committee, many years ago.
