The short history of the Greek Sunday school is discussed in this seminar, not because Greek teachers were involved in it, but for the reason that religion is traditionally an integral part of the Greek education system. Several Greeks used to attend the Anglican Sunday school when there was no orthodox priest in Bloemfontein. The priest was also responsible for Sunday school after the Divine service, but certain factors made it impossible for him to fulfil this duty. Perhaps the parents as well as the children were not motivated to stay for Sunday school after the service.
In 1986, a new arrangement regarding the Sunday school was put into effect. It was decided that Theano Karidi, a literary woman from Cyprus and a very religious person, would run the Sunday school. It took place in the community hall simultaneously with the service. The parents went to the church and their children to the hall, and only when the Divine service was about to end, all of them attended the last minutes of it.
Mrs Karidi managed to attract roughly 60 children, and later in 1990, when she left Bloemfontein, Mrs Andrula Kotaridu took over from her with 30 children attending the Greek Sunday school. From 1998 until 2002, three young women conducted the Sunday school, namely Maria Sava, Irini Retsina, and Irini Sofiadeli. Communication between the children and the catechist was in Greek, though in later years in English. Bible verses were explained, as well as Church life; the children learnt poems, and also sang religious songs. The Sunday school was frequently involved in the organisation of school functions, taking into account that more or less the same children attended both schools. Only pupils attended the Greek Sunday school, and it seems that during certain periods more children participated in the Sunday school than in the Greek school.
