Developing international mindedness through Mother Tongue Sessions ( PYP)

Dear Parent,

We take immense pride in being a part in conserving and celebrating language of every ethnicity which is one of the most distinctive quality of our nation, being entirely multi-lingual.

Exposing students to languages other than their mother tongue provides an insight into and an appreciation of other cultures, and an awareness of other perspectives. language. Research has shown that development of mother-tongue language is crucial for cognitive development and in maintaining cultural identity. (Making the PYP Happen 2009)

We are looking for parent volunteers to facilitate mother tongue sessions for our students. Parents will be oriented about how to go with the session soon in the next week. This event will be happening during school assembly slot. i.e Day 2 between 8:40-9:30 a.m, on 1st December, 2017.

Your co-operation in building a multi-cultural environment will be a great help to the Fountainhead community.

Interested parents need to fill up the form latest by 19th November, 2017.

Fountainhead School
