The Mother Tongue Department aims to:
Instill in MGS girls a passion for learning and appreciating their Mother Tongue Language (MTL) and cultivate them to be active learners.
Develop confident and effective MTL communicators who are able to appreciate their cultural roots and connect with wider communities across Asia and the world.
The Higher Mother Tongue (HMT) will be offered to students who are proficient and show strong interest in their MTL from P3 onwards.
The Mother Tongue Support Programme (MTSP) is implemented at Primary 3-4 to provide a more structured and scaffolded learning pace for students who require a more customised approach to the learning of MTL.
Academic Support for P3 to P6 students are targeted sessions where their MT teacher works with students (small group<10 pax) to close specific learning gaps.
