It is with extreme sadness that we learn of the passing of one of the pillars of the French Education in Victoria, Auburn High School Principal, Maria Karvouni. Maria was the first full-fledged Principal of the High School after its refurbishment in 2014 from Hawthorn Secondary College into Auburn High School.
Since the beginning of her tenure, Maria shared her vision and values to the staff and students and Auburn High School went from strength to strength under her leadership. She was keen to promote the school values of Diversity, Aspiration, Respect and Excellence (DARE) alongside high academic and behavorial expectations.
Maria was a champion of the French Education system and it is with her assistance and advocacy that the French Section of Auburn High School was accredited by the AEFEat the end of 2016.
Her passing is a huge loss for the community. We send our deepest sympathy to her family, friends and to the whole Auburn High School staff and students.
May She Rest in Peace.
