Mother Tongue Support

Mother Tongue is a unique programme that begins in Middle School. It allows students to keep learning in their mother tongue whilst following the regular curriculum and developing their competency in English. The benefit to students is being able to learn and be assessed in both languages. This also helps students prepare to earn a bilingual Diploma when they enter the IB Diploma Programme in Grades 11 and 12.

Each student has an individual programme. The Mother Tongue teacher works in partnership with the student, parents and regular teacher.
