The aim of the Appreciating Culture Lectures is to establish St Spyridon College as a centre of excellence-lifelong learning and intellectual endeavour, not only for its teachers and students but for the community at large.
The first was held in 2003, to celebrate the school’s 21st birthday.
The first speaker, was the late Gavin Brown, then the Vice-Chancellor and Principal of Sydney University. In 2008, the then Attorney General NSW, John Hatzistergos spoke to us about the importance of the Eureka Stockade, as a force of impetus for the development of the Australian Constitution.
In 2005, His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos of Australia defined for us, what were the “Priorities in True Culture”.
