Invitation to Join Us on Friday 28th October

 

iہیلو – Hello

Recently we conducted a short survey and found that we have 54 countries/cultures represented in our school community. This has the potential to hugely enrich our educational experiences at school.

With this in mind we have introduced a ‘Language of the Month’ initiative in the school. The language for the month of October is Urdu.  Currently, we have 15-20 children who have some knowledge of Urdu.

October Language of the Month

This month our language of the month is Urdu. Urdu is mainly spoken in Pakistan, but it is also spoken and understood in parts of India, Bangladesh, Nepal and the Middle East. There are an estimated 100 million speakers of Urdu around the world. Urdu is written and read from right to left; the opposite of English.
