Italian Bilingual Program

In 2021, we will be introducing our Italian bilingual program commencing with our Foundation and Year 1 students and continuing with each new Foundation cohort to progress towards a whole school approach to bilingual education over the coming six years. 


We are so proud to be a part of the Department of Education's Designated Bilingual Schools Program. Within this program, students engage with the full Victorian Curriculum in both English and Italian. We will be holding an information sessions via WebEx on October 28 at 6pm for 2021 Foundation and Year 1 students. Information will be sent via email and compass shortly.
