National Community Language Schools Day

It is a day to celebrate community language schools(CLS), and the essential part they play in Australia's multicultural, multiethnic, and multilingual landscape. CLS facilitate cultural continuity and social cohesion, providing cultural and language learning in an authentic setting. CLS are essential for individuals and communities to establish vital connections within Australia and abroad and keep cultural practices alive. Children can develop crucial language skills and multifaceted identities in CLS, giving them a sense of belonging and contributing to their well-being and opportunities in the long run.

Community Languages Schools Day is a day to raise awareness and gain support from the wider public and important stakeholders. It also gives CLS members a sense of pride and belonging within the broader CLS landscape in Australia.
