SAAA Hindi School Kogarah has been established in response to the needs of first and second generation migrants residing in and around St George area in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Similarly Indian School Parramatta is being established in response to similar needs in Western Suburbs in Sydney, Australia. Children of first generation migrants growing up in Australia are usually able to speak and communicate in their parent’s first language in their early years before commencing primary school.
We are currently teaching Hindi, Gujarati, Marathi and Telugu. However, with continuing formal school education in Australian school environment, these children gradually become less confident in communicating in their first language. Furthermore, lack of structured learning of Hindi language does not provide opportunity to these children to develop or maintain their background or second language. We also teach Hindi to children from non-Hindi backgrounds.
