Learning foreign languages provides children with an opening to other cultures and the opportunity to widen their vocabulary. Primary Languages are beneficial to your children's future as it can equip them to study and work in other countries.
Here at Stone St. Mary’s we have a plethora of languages that our children use in their everyday life at home, that is why it is paramount that children are given the opportunity to learn but to also impart their knowledge onto others.
We believe that Primary Languages learning embodies our core Christian values of respect as children learn to appreciate other cultures but also our Christian value of community as children become more aware of other communities and learn from them.
To become a global citizen, children should appreciate the differences that are present in our diverse country and we believe that Primary Languages will contribute to their preparation for this.
