Second Languages

Our children are exposed to a variety of language instruction from year 4 upward. A linguistic high ability group of year 4 children learn French each week. We also provide French and Maori to year 5 & 6. At year 7 & 8 teachers from the local high school instruct our children in Maori and Japanese and French and Spanish, on alternate years, giving children a taste of each language.

We value the opportunities provided for our children to be exposed to other languages and cultures in our school.
