Curriculum - Italian

The Italian language program at St John the Baptist Primary School  is developed in accordance with the Victorian Essential Learning Standards guidelines, students' interests and familiar content.

All students from Prep to Year 6 participate in an 50 minute class once a week.

Students are exposed to oral and written language developing listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in a language other than English. The program is varied using songs, drama, poetry, ICT, games, arts, crafts, cooking and sport. 

The language program develops skills in:

  • Communicating in a language other than English
  • Intercultural knowledge – celebrations of festivals and Italian culture

  • Tolerance, acceptance and celebration of other cultures

  • Language awareness – students become more aware of the structure of their own language and grammar.
