The languages currently offered include Japanese, Mandarin and French presented by native speaking teachers, some with a long association with the school. They bring an authentic approach to the teaching of the language and the culture that is closely tied to the development of language skills.
Lessons normally run for 1 hour each week and are available to both pre-primary and primary age children. Not all languages are available at all campuses. Lessons are taught by independent providers for a fee; bookings and payment of fees is directly to the provider.
- Japanese – Lessons are provided in school hours by our very popular and long-standing Japanese teacher. As an exception to normal practice, bookings and invoicing for Japanese lessons is handled by the School Office and costs will appear on your school account. Term 1 is invoiced at the end of term 1 while terms 2,3 and 4 are invoiced in advance.
- French – These lessons are also offered within school hours for Primary aged children and during MHE and afternoon sessions for Pre Primary children.
- Mandarin – Lessons are held out of school hours and are run by Mandarin Stars for Primary children and in the afternoons during MHE for Pre Primary children.
