ndia has 22 official languages and 1652 mother tongues spoken by people.
In this special scenario having a national language or a language which can be spoken by all the people of India is very important. Hindi is the 2nd most spoken language in the world after Mandarin Chinese. It is part of one of the oldest religious and literary traditions in the world.
So it is very important for every citizen of India that he / she can speak Hindi. Communication with the common man of other states of India is possible only through Hindi.
In Clarence high school we consider Hindi as an important part of school curriculum. Presently we have Hindi as a second language from STD- 3 to 10 . In Hindi department we have 5 full time teachers who work tirelessly as a team to improve the standard of Hindi of our students. We help students to learn this language easily and interesting. Every year in the month of October we conduct HINDI PUBLIC SPEAKING for students from STD-3 to 10. For this we invite 3 Judges from other schools. This competition includes poetry, jokes, speech and debate. The school magazine THE CLARENCIAN has a section for Hindi. Students take a lot of interest to write articles in Hindi for the same. We are also planning to have few items in Hindi for CLADS to encourage and provide opportunities for our students.
Currently three teachers of the department are taking part in the ICSE board paper valuation. By doing this they update themselves with the changes and other activities of the Council.
