The language program at Beldon Primary School is Indonesian. Children from Years 3 to 6 participate in a 60-minute languages session each week and are taught by a specialist teacher.
Not only do children learn how to speak and write in Indonesian, they learn about the countries where it is spoken. Learning to communicate in another language challenges children to discover more about how other people live, and opens their mind up to different cultures and ways of life. It is also proven to enhance academic abilities and brain development, and strengthen overall literacy.
