Language other than English (LOTE)

​St Joachim’s School offers Italian lessons. During Italian lessons students learn the Italian language and culture through games, songs and other communicative tasks.

The learning of a Language other than English (LOTE) is important to the students of St Joachim’s not only as a way of promoting cultural understanding in our diverse community but also as a means to help them develop skills that support other areas of the curriculum.

We hope that through our Italian lessons the students will be inspired to continue the study of LOTE throughout high school or even later in their lives.
