Chinese Language Program

The Chinese language is taught from Year 1 through to Year 6 for an hour a week.

A rolling 2-3 year program based on the WA Languages Curriculum is implemented across the years.

For the younger grades there is a focus on learning basic greetings, colours, numbers, family and friends, fruits, and the basic components of Chinese which are taught through songs, games, repetition and crafts.

For the older students a range of topics are covered to enable students to communicate about their world: sports, hobbies, their daily routine, school, home and the community/neighbourhood.  

Students are motivated to learn through both in-house and interschool competitions for speaking, writing and online learning.

Education Perfect, an online learning program is used from Year 3-6 to cater to the range of ability levels.

Chinese Culture is taught across all levels through various activities including stories, songs, cooking etc and is celebrated in Term 4 on Chinese Day with costumes, incursion classes, food and other activities.
