Hi Patrick,

Thanks for your post and for sharing the excellent work of so many organisations in your locality. It is clear that there is a vibrant community spirit, with a desire to create a welcoming atmosphere for migrants in the area. This work in the community likely means that children will be more receptive to emulating this atmosphere in school. I love the idea of including words from the native language of all children on your word wall – this gives them a sense of ownership and belonging in the classroom. As well as creating an inclusive classroom climate, this practice is also recommended within the Primary Language Curriculum.
