2008_Kalpakian_01 (Small) The AGBU Artaki Kalpakian School of Athens completed another successful
year, fulfilling its national educational mission of providing its
pupils with a solid Armenian education and infusing in them the global
Armenian spirit. Graduation ceremonies took place on Wednesday, June 11,
2008, in the Greek school’s Louis and Hrant Fenerjian Auditorium.
The combined year-end event of the kindergarten and primary grades
featured songs, recitations and dances. The kindergarten children
focused on the diversity of the human race, while the primary school
graduates presented the life and work of the educator-composer Magar
Yegmalian, particularly his mass, which is performed in Armenian
Apostolic churches every week and is contained in the Missal of the
Armenian Apostolic Church.
In his concluding remarks, Principal Zaven Krikorian reflected on the
mission of the Armenian school as an educational institution providing a
sense of identity. AGBU Athens Chapter Secretary Garbis Keshishian
handed out the diplomas. The event concluded with the participation of
Archbishop Vosgan Kalpakian, Primate of the Diocese of Greece, who
delivered the parting benediction.
