In 2012 CHSIPS established programs to develop our students understanding of Asian culture, history and language. Understanding Asia is embedded across all key learning areas and students in Prep to 6 participate in Mandarin classes. Students in Years 5 and 6 have Mandarin as their Language Other Than English (LOTE).
Our LOTE teacher, Mrs Nelly Chen, has developed a strong learning program which is well supported by our community.
It is a delight to watch our students embrace this new language with confidence and enthusiasm.
