Mandarin (Languages Other Than English)

Our LOTE program is run weekly by our Mandarin teacher Mrs Yu. With students from years 3-6 complete an hour session weekly, while our 1/2 students complete a 30 minute session. Students are engaged in learning cultural aspects of China, involving the location, food, special celebrations and landmarks. Students learn to speak words and phrase in Mandarin, based on engaging topics such as greetings, numbers, families, colours, daily schedule and all about me. The senior students begin to learn how to write the language using pinyin and characters.
