In NSW high schools, languages is a key learning area.

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.

The study of a language is compulsory for 100 hours in one continuous school year from Year 7 to Year 10, but preferably in Years 7 or 8.

Teacher, Ms Catherine Barwick -

All Year 7 study Italian as part of their mandatory LOTE hours.

Ms Barwick, will introduce the students to learning opportunities available at our school with speaking another language.

The students cover topics such as:

  • The alphabet
  • Numbers
  • Greetings
  • Games
