Global Perspective

How do we foster a sense of Global Perspective in Elementary School?

An international curriculum and global outlook ensure our students are equipped to succeed in today’s increasingly globalised world. Our dedicated global languages program empowers our students to succeed in the 21st century by developing proficiency in a foreign language and cultivating a deep understanding of world cultures.

At the Elementary School, your child will participate in daily Mandarin lessons. Our well-developed program helps develop their interest in an additional language and steadily builds on their knowledge and understanding of Mandarin as well as Chinese culture.

Engaging, relevant and challenging program

Our Mandarin Team works closely with different subject and curriculum leaders across the Elementary School, linking the Mandarin curriculum to the relevant focus of inquiry at that point in your child’s school year.

In doing so, your child will develop a flow of understanding across subjects and so learn by linking Mandarin to the content within their units of inquiry. They will also learn through the study of developmentally appropriate topic based units.

Lessons are designed to provide authentic contexts for learning, which increase in language complexity and foster confidence to speak, listen, read and write in Mandarin. Regular revision lessons are included to consolidate learning and apply the newly acquired language to new situations.

Our dedicated and creative team of Mandarin teachers endeavour to provide an engaging, meaningful and differentiated program in the classroom.

Differentiated Classes

Classes are differentiated into Core, Core Extension and Heritage. Your child’s ability will be assessed during class time and they will be placed in groups to work with children who have a similar level of Mandarin ability.
