Since 2010 the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) have observed International Mother Language Day to promote the preservation and protection of all languages used by peoples of the world.

At Saints our aim is to support the boys in promoting unity in diversity and inter-cultural understanding through multilingualism and multiculturalism. In lessons, the Year 7 boys are taking part in activities about developing a fuller awareness of languages and cultural traditions throughout the world. In Years 8 -12 the students are involved in discussions about heritage and the impact of disappearing languages on future generations. Some language activities include; tongue twisters, idiomatic expressions and false friends.
