Yiannis Melitas with class in Potamos, Kythera

This is a picture of Yiannis Melitas with his class in Potamos. The writing translates as-
Picture of Yiannis Melitas with students of the Public School of Potamos.
Play performed during Holiday of Panagia (August 15, 1947).

Yiannis was my grandmother Efrosini (Trifillis) Trearchis' first cousin, Yiannis' aunt being Efrosini's mother.

Anyone with any info on Yiannis, his ancestry, or his children would be great. By the way does anyone know who any of the children in this photo are?

The young boy on the far right is Stavros Mavromatis. Tragically, not long after this photograph was taken he was killed in a car accident. The young girl on the far left of the photograph is myself, Helen Kalos (nee, Yeoryopoulos).
