With an aim to connect the youth from this generation to Indian heritage and language, Narinder Kumar Garg and his wife along with a few community volunteers have ignited a start up venture, which offers Hindi language tutoring over the weekends. “The Gurukull” concept is the first of it’s kind in Victoria.
It all began two months ago where the language of Hindi was broken down to the basics and children were introduced to a language that held the flavor of their Indian roots on their tongues. Narinder holds the classes in Craigieburn every Saturday from 11:00am to 12 Noon.
“Every week, new parents & children have been joining us passionately. We have been able to teach fifteen children presently and looking forward to include more. Apart from teaching them how to read and write in Hindi, soon we are likely to start yoga, dance, music classes and other cultural activities. A Gurukull Chaupaal (Indian Australian Parents Club) is also planned.” Said Narinder Kumar Garg, Founder & President, Gurukull.
‘The Gurukull’ is a Not for Profit Organization and is in ties with the Victorian School of Languages (VSL) in order to gain a formal setup.
The school will be inaugurated on Saturday 11 July 2015 at the Newbury Child and Community Centre, 440 Grand Boulevard, Cragieburn. The time is from 12 pm to 2 pm.
The event is set to include the presence of a few dignitaries, well known community people & local community leaders. A short cultural program will take place as part of the event.
