Mother Tongue Day

As always, parents and helpers created another magical Mother Tongue Day on the morning of Thursday 21st of February.  UNESCO began celebrating International Mother Tongue Day in 2000.  This year the theme was ‘indigenous languages as a factor in development, peace, and reconciliation.  PREM chose to honour this with ‘One World, Many Stories’ with the activities offered showing how beautiful and welcoming languages are to share meaning, and culture.  Sadly, 40% of the population does not have access to an education in a language they speak or understand.  Mother Tongue Day helps us remember that whilst we have a common language here at school, we also have lots of other languages, which are just as important.

I was lucky enough to be able to visit each group, and witness the joy on the faces of our students, playing games, creating crafts, eating food, and listening to and sharing stories.  If you were involved, thank you, we appreciate all you do to be part of junior school.  If you weren’t involved and would like to be next year, email A.
