Congratulations to our 2021 VCE Students

Annual Hindi Function - Dandenong
01 December, 2021
For the last class of the year, Hindi students of VSL Dandenong participated in an end of the year cultural program.  Quick answer questions, poetry puzzles, riddles, memory games, dance performances by students etc. were part of the annual celebrations. Certificates and prizes were given to all students for encouraging and reading Hindi. 
This program was completed in collaboration with the Hindi Education Association, Australia. On this occasion, the President of Hindi Shiksha Sangh, Dr. Subhash Sharma informed students of the importance of Hindi and Indian culture. He also described Lord Macaulay, including his understanding about India, the high character of Indians 200 years ago and how his new education system changed that. Dr Sharma appealed to the students not to limit Hindi education to the classroom and to speak freely to the people of their family and the extended Indian community. This is how the language that is spoken remains alive.
VSL Area Manager, Heather Rae, also extended her best wishes to the students. In Saturday’s program, Hindi teacher Shally Khanna, who is also the secretary of the Hindi Education Association, made a special contribution in the organization. Manju Aggarwal (Vice President), Upma Mittal, Anjali Gupta, Saloni Surawala and Meenu Srivastava also made special contributions to the event.

Tamil End of Year Celebration 2021
26 November, 2021

Every year Tamilar Inc., in association with Victorian School of Languages, proudly celebrates an End of Year event to mark our Tamil students’ achievements and proficiency in their mother tongue.

Due to the pandemic, this year's event was organised on Saturday 20th November 2021 as an online event. This of course presented its unique challenges. To minimise the technology challenges amongst the 250+ students and their parents we decided to divide the event and run it simultaneously as four events covering the four areas of Point Cook (Area 1), Lalor (Area 2), Truganina, Caroline Springs & Melton (Area 3) and Craigieburn (Area 4).

It was a wonderful event recognising student and teacher achievements and a true celebration of culture and heritage.
