Celebration of Learning: An Odyssey of 100 Languages at AIS Early Learning Village
The Australian International School’s Early Learning Village recently played host to a remarkable event that left attendees in awe. Titled “Celebration of Learning: An Odyssey of 100 Languages,” it was a true spectacle that showcased not only diversity and education but also the incredible ways in which children can express themselves and learn.
A Tapestry of Voices: The Magical Celebration
On Tuesday, 19th September, the Australian International School community witnessed an awe-inspiring spectacle that can only be described as magical —The Celebration of Learning: An Odyssey of 100 Languages. The event was not just a celebration of diversity and education, but also a showcase of the limitless ways children can express themselves and learn.
Open to Parents: A Heartwarming Experience
One of the most heartwarming aspects of the event was seeing parents and their children completely immersed in the activities on offer. Whether it was a toddler excitedly smearing colours on canvas, a child meticulously combining liquids, or parents engaged in a workshop tailored to incorporate science and math, the joy was palpable. The unique partnership of parents and children learning side by side reinforced the community spirit and emphasized that the thirst for knowledge knows no age.
Celebrating 100 Languages: A Revolution in Education
The concept of 100 languages celebrates the diverse ways in which children can express themselves—be it through art, music, movement, or spoken and written word. Another reason why the event felt revolutionary was its seamless integration of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) principles. Young engineers built miniature structures; future artists sketched their dreams; and budding musicians composed melodies. The Celebration of Learning demonstrated that education does not have to be compartmentalised into rigid categories but can be a harmonious blend of all disciplines, enriching children’s perspectives and widening their horizons.
Building the AIS Community: A Profound Impact
Perhaps the most beautiful outcome of yesterday’s Celebration of Learning was the community it fostered. Children, parents, and educators came together, not just as spectators but as co-learners and co-creators. In a world where learning is often confined to textbooks and classrooms, this event reminded us of the profound impact that interactive, hands-on experiences can have on shaping young minds.
