Nailsworth Primary School has a strong tradition of teaching languages as part of the school curriculum.
For many years all students either studied Greek or Italian.
Increasingly the offering of 2 languages has put a strain on school resources. Therefore as a result of a language review in 2020, it was resolved that all students would study Italian with an additional option of students being also able to study Greek.
From 2021 there are transition arrangments in place where students in year 3-7 can continue to study Greek.
Government funding also enables the school to offer a First Language Maintenance programme.
In past years this was in both the Greek and Italian languages however the priorities are now to support recent migrants to Australia. We therefore now offer eligible families the option of studying one of 3 Indian languages.
