International Mother Language Day

On 21st February 2022 Winterbourne Junior Girls’ School attended the International Mother Language Day 2022 celebration at Croydon Town Hall hosted by The Mayor of Croydon, Cllr Sherwan Chowdhury.

The theme of the 2022 International Mother Language Day, “Using technology for multilingual learning: Challenges and opportunities”, will discuss the potential role of technology to advance multilingual education and support the development of quality teaching and learning for all.

Technology has the potential to address some of the greatest challenges in education today. It can accelerate efforts towards ensuring equitable and inclusive lifelong learning opportunities for all if it is guided by the core principles of inclusion and equity. Multilingual education based on mother tongue is a key component of inclusion in education.

Our children offered some amazing performances and speeches in 32 different languages! The girls did a fantastic job and made us so so proud.
