Languages Other Than English
The language of Spanish is undertaken as a subject by all Year 7 students, and is also offered as an elective to Year 11 and 12 students.
Spanish classes study the culture, grammar and syntaxes of the language. The compelling reasons for learning Spanish reside in the intellectual enrichment of the student; with a better understanding of the world, Australia's place in it and the many Hispanic communities within Australia.
What Research Tells Us
Contemporary research and practices has established a clear link between the learning of Spanish and improved literacy skills for both background speakers and second language learners. Even a limited experience of learning Spanish has shown increases in literacy awareness and enhanced general cognitive development.
