The College offers two languages - one European language (French) and one Asian language (Japanese).
Students in Years 2-6 participate in weekly Japanese lessons led by a Specialist teacher. Through exploring Japanese language and culture, students develop essential communication and intercultural understanding skills and also foster their sense of identity through comparing their own cultural and social practices to the Japanese people.
Students in Year 7 are required to select either French or Japanese. They will have two hours of the language for the whole year and will continue to study the same language in Year 8. The courses foster communication and cultural skills through the four language modes of reading, writing, viewing, speaking and listening, and cover the WA Curriculum Languages strands of Communicating and Understanding. From Year 9, students can choose to continue with the language they studied in Year 8, or switch to another optional subject.
The College offers a unique program for those students that continue with their language study through to Year 10, whereby they can obtain the nationally recognised TAFE Certificate II in Applied Languages. Students who continue with Japanese or French in Year 11 and 12 are able to complete the TAFE Certificate III in Applied Languages as well as use Japanese or French to contribute to their ATAR.
