With pride and joy, the first stage of the St Hurmizd Assyrian School was opened on Sunday 20th January 2002 by his Beatitude Mar Meelis Zaia. Towards the end of his opening speech His Beatitude said “…a school, in which our people from all denominations will have pride in knowing that they have accomplished their national obligations upon which rely all the coming generations May the blessings of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ be upon all of you.”
The School commenced its first Term of teaching on Wednesday 30th January with 86 students.
The school’s motto is : Haimanoota, Yartoota and Yulpana which translates into: Faith, Heritage and Education.
Currently St Hurmizd Assyrian primary School is providing Educational service for 553 students including religious studies, Assyrian Language and all Board Of Studies Key Learning Areas.
The Assyrian Community in Australia and Abroad will forever be grateful for His Beatitude Mar Meelis’s vision to establish a primary then followed by a secondary school Mar Narsai Assyrian Colleg.
