Kon Bouzikos


I am an experienced Primary and Secondary School Teacher and have worked in Orthodox, Catholic, Government and Independent Schools. My subject areas are the Humanities, Religious Education and Modern Greek. I value the Seven Liberal Arts and the importance of a Christian Classical education. I am a person who enjoys dialogue and critical thinking in order to elicit the truth during conversations. Greek philosophers such as Plato, Socrates and Aristotle continue to shape my views of education. I am currently the President and cofounder of ACES ‘Australian Classical Education Society ‘. The roots of education are based on the seven Liberal Arts (the Trivium and Quadrivium) and it is now time that this type of education which is not elitist is offered to students in Australia. A broad based education that is concerned with human formation, reading the great books and allowing students to see connections between the different subjects is so vital and necessary today. The renewal for classical education which began in America 40 years ago is urgently needed in Australia. The educational landscape is about to change in Australia!
