At Parap Primary School we value learning languages in addition to English. Learning a second language develops critical and creative thinking skills.
Due to COVID-19 in 2020, we have not been able to secure a second Chinese language teacher. As we currently have one Chinese language teacher, these language lessons are offered to our students in Year One and Years Three to Six.
Through learning a new language, students can experience different cultures. We believe, learning Chinese language and culture increases opportunities and pathways for our students on their way to success.
The Darwin Language Centre, located in Ludmilla, offers a wide range of languages to students after school. A bus service picks students up from our school and takes them to the Darwin Language Centre where parents/carers can collect them after their lesson has finished.
