Footscray Primary School is an Italian Bilingual School and has a proud history of language learning. In 2023, all students in Foundation to Year Three learn 50% of the Victorian Curriculum through Italian language. Each year, our incoming Foundation students will join the program and by 2026 we will deliver a whole school 50/50 Italian/English bilingual program.
Our language learning framework is the beginning of our journey and will be strengthened by our students, our staff, and our community as we move forward together.
