greek schoolThe Greek-speaking primary schools “Socrates-Demosthenes” of the Hellenic Community of Greater Montreal (HCGM) will be facing problems after the Ministry of Education, Recreation and Sport in Québec (MELS) decided to gradually reduce the grants for the transportation of students to and from the school buildings. Moreover, MELS is eventually planning on completely eliminating the grants.
