Highland Council – Family Learning and Wellbeing Project

The purpose of this project is to give families an opportunity to come together and celebrate their own Syrian culture and language, as many of the children had not had an opportunity to properly explore their own Syrian culture since moving to Scotland and, in the home, parents’ thoughts often centred on ongoing atrocities in Syria which therefore
occupied much of family discussion time. Given that pupils spend most of their school day immersed in another language and culture, it was felt important for the families to be given an opportunity to express their own culture, identity and language and have some fun.
