Celebrating Cultures in the Nursery – Volunteers Required

globe-clipart-multicultural-5At Gylemuir we love to celebrate the cultures and backgrounds of all our pupils and the Nursery are keen to ask volunteers to help with some of their Literacy activities:

  • STORIES – if you can speak or read a language other than English, we would love you to come in and read a dual language story to the children.
  • WRITING – if you can write in a language other than English we would like your help writing the children’s names in other languages.
    We are also looking for donations of non-English language newspapers or packets with writing from around the world (eg. Polish cornflakes box, Basmati rice bag with Urdu script, etc.)
  • CLOTHING – we are looking for donations of clothing from around the world for the children to dress up in.

If you can help with any of these activities, or would like to get involved in another way, please speak to a member of staff – we really appreciate any support you can offer!
