LANGUAGES OTHER THAN ENGLISH

LANGUAGES OTHER THAN ENGLISH – KEY LEARNING STATEMENT


Rationale:

The L.O.T.E studied at St Robert’s is Indonesian. 

Parents are encouraged to recognise the importance and advantage of experiences associated with a language other that English.

Parents can do this by talking, questioning, taking an interest in and encouraging their child to share their experiences in L.O.T.E.

We give the children an understanding of the importance of other cultures and respect for individual differences. The children will build confidence in listening, speaking, reading and writing in L.O.T.E.

Parents and Parish are welcomed to attend and participate in L.O.T.E activity days, excursions and class activities. We invite parents to contribute by sharing their cultural experiences, skills and resources. Despite families’ cultural religious background, children will participate in activities that portray the

teaching of Christ, His message and traditions of the Catholic Church.

We accept that checklists, tests and other assessment methods must be used to establish children’s  abilities, thus influencing the tasks we will need to set for the children.
