  • Friday 23 February 2024 International Mother language Day Thanks to Ms Harrill and the upper phase children who organised a wonderful assembly on Wednesday to mark International Mother Language Day. International Mother Language Day is a worldwide annual observance held on 21st February each year to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity and to promote multilingualism.
