International Mother Tongue Day

In Oakridge, we also look at the improvement of mother tongue of a child. To boost this, we organize mother tongue sessions every month on several topics. On 21st of February, we had a cultural show.

The Guest for the event was Mr. Ditta Kavi Sheshacharyulu, from Vishakhapatnam. He is an eminent Telugu author and is presently working with different universities in Hyderabad. The students from PP1 to grade V, did a stage show in Telugu, Hindi, Marathi, Malayalam and Tamil under the following categories-
* Singing
* Dance
* Story telling
* Recitation of Poem
