Primary School celebrated the ‘International Mother Language Day’ on 21st February 2011.  International Mother Language Day is marked every year worldwide on 21st February by UNESCO to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity and ‘Multilingualism’.

In their respective grades, students were familiarised with the significance of this day. In Early Years, there were story telling sessions conducted by a few teachers in the school community in their own mother tongue, which were then translated in English for all students to comprehend. The story sessions which featured Spanish, Russian, Korean, Bengali, Punjabi fostered appreciation for these languages from around the world and students got an opportunity to learn a few words in them.
