In NSW primary schools, the study of a language is optional.
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.
We acknowledge the Darug people, the traditional custodians of the land and waterways, of the Country on which we learn, play, teach and grow. We pay our deepest respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and to all First Nation peoples.
