The Arabic Community Language School, a project within Aspiring Communities Together (ACT) held its annual achievement celebration on the 20th May 2017. The Arabic Community Language School teaches Arabic from beginner to advanced for children 7 years of age to 16 years of age. The school is based at the Fir Vale centre and runs on the evenings and weekends. Children attend two sessions per week but the timings may vary depending on levels.
The celebration event welcomed Councillor Mark Jones and Councillor Jackie Drayton and MP Gill Furniss. Awards were provided to the highest achievers amongst young people as well volunteer teachers.
Over 350 people attended including children and their families. There was poetry, eloquent speeches from young people themselves, and many other activities.
Headteacher Musaid Al-Hakam said:
“We work to a curriculum which allows young people to eventually work towards sitting GCSE Arabic. Young people have shown a great deal of progress in learning the Arabic language. They are committed and enthusiastic and this is reflected in their development.”
