In addition to the Dutch and French home language programmes, which have regularly timetabled classes that take place during (and sometimes after) the school day, we also have a number of after-school Home Language Groups to encourage our students to maintain and develop their first language. Each group meets once a week after school with an external teacher. The groups are small, usually involving 2-6 students of a similar age and language level (the clubs are for students who already speak the language, and are not available for beginners). There is an additional fee for these classes which is paid directly to the teacher, and students who sign up are expected to commit to continuing this after-school activity throughout the school year.
We currently offer after-school Home Language Groups for the following languages:
We are also happy to set up additional Home Language Groups, if there is sufficient interest and an appropriate teacher can be found.
