In NSW primary schools, the study of a language is optional.

Language study allows students to develop communication skills, learn about languages as systems and explore the relationship between language and culture. Students engage with the linguistic and cultural diversity of societies and reflect on their understanding of social interactions.

At Petersham PS, we offer a range of co-curricular language programs. We have Italian classes for Years 3-6 (Monday afternoon) and Years K-2 (Wednesday afternoon), and Mandarin classes for Years K-6 on Thursday afternoon.

Italian lessons - Co.As.It. on Monday, 27 July from 3:15 to 5:15pm in classroom 3Y (next to office) Please contact
