The High Commissioner for Diaspora Affairs, Zareh Sinanyan, is on a working visit to Australia for the first time. As part of his visit to the community, the High Commissioner visited the AGBU Alexander Primary School in Sydney.

Mr. Sinanyan was warmly greeted by students who began the visit with a presentation which included song and dance related to Vartanants Day. Principal Manoug Demirjian, accompanied by members of the school board, gave a tour of the classrooms and facilities. He also discussed the curriculum, their programs, and needs with the High Commissioner.
