The Children's Division caters for children of preschool, primary and secondary school age (generally 4 to 18 years). We aim to instil students with the confidence required to undertake formal accreditation in the German language.
Placement of students is based on age and prior knowledge (if any) of German. Depending on the learning abilities of students, teachers apply a variety of techniques in the classroom, including the use of language games and song as well as a progressive text book series. Reports are issued to students each year.
We hold classes on Saturday mornings and Monday afternoons. We follow the normal school calendar and break for school holidays. View our school calendar here: Class dates and times 2016
