At Watsonia North Primary School, all of our students learn Italian for 50 minutes every week. Each session students engage with the Italian language exploring new concepts and language skills, while building on existing knowledge to communicate with others. The use of various digital technologies consolidate concepts taught throughout the grades.
In addition to exploring the Italian language, students are also immersed in the rich and colourful Italian culture. Through songs, rhymes, dances, role-plays, games, cooking and craft work, Watsonia North students flourish in the Italian classroom with the support of an experienced and enthusiastic bilingual teacher.
Watsonia North shares culturally rich opportunities with the wider community, through our much-loved Carnevale Day Education Week activities, and the Italian herb garden.
