Telugu School of Edmonton Header.jpg


                  Telugu School of Edmonton is primarily established to teach Mother Language skills to keep the young generation connected to Telugu Culture. Children of all ages are introduced and encouraged to learn Telugu through Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. This school is open not only to the young children but for all ages. We have celebrated 10th Anniversary this year on July 4th, 2015.
                  Currently, the school has 67 students, ages ranging from 3 to 14 and we have 6 different groups. Fifteen teachers are volunteering to run the Telugu School. We are maintaining a student to teacher ratio of 4:1. In addition, two young adults who have graduated from our school in the past are extending their volunteer services as assistant teachers. This enables them to keep in touch with their mother language. The lesson plans for various grades are reviewed periodically based on the valuable feedback from the current and past students and their parents. We hold classes once in a week, every Saturday from 2:30 pm to 4.30 pm starting from the 2nd week of September until the last week of June at Alberta Hindi Parishad, Edmonton, At the end of every class we have 20 minutes of assembly time. During assembly time students hone their public speaking skills by sharing their thoughts, sing poems, narrate stories and importance of our various festivals etc., in Telugu. This enables students to gain confidence in their communication and presentation skills in Telugu. We invite the guest speakers, who are well versed with Telugu language and culture. We do have ‘student of the month’ award for the students who excels in the language skills, behavior and attendance.

                  Our focus is to enhance the association of our Telugu children to their culture. Telugu School gives a golden opportunity for the School Children to keep in touch with our rich tradition and culture. The participation of Telugu School Children in the cultural activities conducted throughout the year during Telugu festivals is increasing since we started this school. This is clearly a success that we achieved in bridging the gap between the young generation and our heritage.
                  We have been members of IHLA since 2007-08. We Telugu School will stand up to the values and continue building connections to Arts and Culture for all Edmontonians including our Telugu community.
