On the 21st February, Britannica students, parents and staff celebrated International Mother Language Day. This is a holiday founded by UNESCO to celebrate multilingualism and to protect native languages from extinction. The day started with a fabulous parade where students got to show their national costumes and flags.

Britannica is a multinational community that worked together in language groups to provide fun activities for students to participate in during the afternoon that explained the variety of cultures and mother tongue languages that make up the Britannica family.

We were so lucky to have such a wonderful team of volunteer parents, who provided many fun activities for students during the event later in the day. Parents brought in games, artefacts, musical instruments, quizzes, toys, and of course, food for all students to enjoy! Parents coordinated booths from China, France, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Ukraine, and Russia.

Britannica would like to thank all involved for truly making this day a fun and unforgettable experience!
