March is Greek Heritage Month

Wednesday, March 01, 2017
Categories: Great Things, Happenings @ TDSB

“Philotimo to the Greek is like breathing. A Greek is not a Greek without it.”  - Thales

 

March is Greek Heritage Month at the Toronto District School Board (TDSB).  It is an occasion to recognize and celebrate the many achievements and contributions of Greek Canadians to Canada, an occasion to mark and enjoy the history of Greek culture.  


The theme of this year’s celebration is “Greek Heart & Soul: Philanthropia, Philoxenia, Philotimo.”  These attributes of Hellenistic culture are recognised around the world as profound qualities of Greeks.  Throughout mythological, ancient and modern history, Greek people have demonstrated their humanity and love for humankind (philanthropia), their hospitality (philoxenia) and their keen sense of honour (philotimo).

 

During the month of March, there are several events planned to celebrate the rich heritage of Greeks in the form of songs, dances, special presentations and cultural performances by students and community partners.  


Saturday, March 4, 1pm to 3pm: Opening Event at the Greek Community of Toronto.  


Saturday, March 252pm to 6pm there will be the Closing Event at East York CI.
