Middle School - Term 4, Week 4, 2019

Languages Day - Friday 15 November
We really want children to be comfortable with “who they are” and an important part of that is looking at your culture and ethnic background. Children in the middle years are self-conscious and desperate to know that they fit in and often there is a disconnect with their cultural background at this stage that turns around quite dramatically at around 18-20. We want to create a fun day to appreciate and celebrate different cultures and languages with Language Day and this then hopefully moves children a bit further toward being comfortable with who they are – how they think others see them and how they see themselves.
