As part of our strategic plan for the 2017-18 school year, we are currently exploring our school’s status as a multilingual community and looking into accelerating language development by promoting home languages. Several workshops and projects have thus been organised by Eowyn Crisfield of Crisfield Consulting for our teachers over the course of this academic year.
During the workshops on Monday 8 January, the teachers explored accelerating literacy through the use of support tools and strategies as well as the use of the home language in the classroom.
Eowyn gave two presentations to parents on “raising bilingual children” on Tuesday 9 January. These were well attended and much appreciated .
