Classes are held at the Mount St neighbourhood house, Mount St, Glen Waverley, every Sunday between 4:00PM and 5:30PM. No classes are held during Victorian school holidays.
School aged students wishing to learn Bengali language, culture and heritage are welcome to join.
Students are split into advanced and beginner groups so they can be taught material appropriate to their level. They learn numbers and the alphabet, and are provided reading materials and worksheets to use in class and at home.
The students also learn about Bengali culture, history and mythology, and perform Bengali songs, poems, dances and plays at various community programs.
Bengali news presentations, debating, video games and apps are used to supplement the students' learning. They also undertake regular excursions and incursions to broaden their horizons.
