SAHETI Alumnus


To assist SAHETI school with my efforts in making myself available to the board to assist with the responsibilities that we have inherited from the Hellenic community in South Africa.

In knowing who we are, we also need to recognize that the responsibility we have inherited, requires a collective effort amongst all who serve the present and future of SAHETI without forgetting its history and the cultural inheritance.
