Languages

In NSW primary schools, the study of a language is optional.

Language study allows students to develop communication skills, learn about languages as systems and explore the relationship between language and culture. Students engage with the linguistic and cultural diversity of societies and reflect on their understanding of social interactions.

Japanese

Through the medium of Japanese language and culture, the school's Japanese program provides the opportunity for students in Kindergarten to Year 5 to learn about a people, culture and belief system different from their own. The program connects learning across the curriculum through:

  • Competitions
  • A sister school relationship with Naruto Public School Japan
  • Community activities
  • Music and story telling
  • Drama
