Celebrating Home Languages


Including and celebrating diverse languages enriches the classroom environment and is a way of fostering a children's rights approach in a learning environment. As kaiako, we are in a position of responsibility to support children in their right to preserve their mother tongue, model a culture of respect for the linguistic diversity of our students, and to encourage whanau to keep speaking their mother languages.

This resource was created for International Mother Language Day which falls in February each year, but can be used year round for units relating to language and culture, diversity, inclusion and geography.
