50:50 Program in 2014
Our Year 1 and 2 students enjoy a 50:50, English/German model with data showing strong learning results in all curriculum areas. In 2014 this program has been continued into Year 3. Research strongly supports the advantages to the students of this approach to learning.
Language Learning Centre
Bayswater South Primary School is pleased to have moved into a new age of bilingual education, with its new building having been fully operational for two years.
The new Language Learning Centre (LLC) has been built thanks to the Federal Government's Building the Education Revolution (BER) initiative. Our school received $2.5M funding to construct this architect-designed, purpose-built facility, with 2 classrooms equipped for language learning or general class use and two Science rooms, both with wet areas and access to a fully functional kitchen.
In 2014 all students in the school receive a minimum of 7.5 hours per week of their learning in the German language through an immersion program, with many sessions being conducted in the LLC.
Our Year 1, 2 and 3 students (and one class of Year 4 students) receive a 50:50 English-German program, again with a number of lessons in the LLC. Other classes and indeed whole level meetings, assemblies and functions are regularly held in the magnificent open learning space, and there are withdrawal and interview rooms plus outstanding storage and display areas in the building.
Come and have a look at our world-class facilities and programs. For a tour, please phone the school office on (03) 9729 2862.
