“Culture is the widening of the mind and of the spirit.” – Jawaharlal Nehru.
We at GCIS believe that exposing children to different cultures is very vital to personal
growth. In Kindergarten, the children are taught the cultures of other countries every week. They learn about the food habits, attire, animals, plants and amazing facts of these countries through art and craft activities. They are able to associate the countries just by looking at the flags. Social graces like “thank you” and “hello” are taught in different languages. This not only teaches them diversity but also allows them to forge new friendships. Children participate in the ICL activities by bringing in food related to the countries taught. They also exhibit show and tell activities which raise their general awareness. Teachers make it interesting by playing “quiz time” to revise the various things taught about the countries.
