Primary Language Program

We would like to take this opportunity to thank teachers and parents for an amazing 8 week pilot primary language program which started in 2-April-16and ended last Saturday 4-June-16.The following languages featured : Amharic and French.

Thank you for your support of the program and hope your child will be able to continue his/her participation in the program during the upcoming school year.  

We also thank the gracious Tutors who have made this valuable program possible.  

Research tells us that children learn English better when they can support their learning with their home language. Home languages are also fundamental to a child’s identity in a new environment. Keeping up with learning and language development in the “mother tongue” or primary language is important when the family returns to their country of origin.

Registration for 2016/2017 School year will be done first week of September many and more languages will be offered.

Here are a few pictures taken during the Primary language program with our students:
