ECC Celebrates Home Language Day
Posted 23/02/2017 17:13

As part of our commitment to supporting and celebrating the linguistic diversity of our students, the ECC celebrates the United National Home Language Day. This is an annual event occurring in February of each year.

This year, Home Language Day took place in the ECC on Tuesday 21 February. In the morning, the ECC children left their normal classroom grouping and joined a group of students who share the same home language as them.

With the support of parent volunteers, teachers and in some cases Middle School students, we were able to host 24 different language groups. The children listened to stories, played games, shared cultural experiences and connected around their shared language, celebrating what it means to be linguistically diverse.

A huge thank you to the parents who volunteered to be part of this special day!
