The Children’s Division caters for children of primary and secondary school age (generally 6 to 18 years). We aim to instill 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. Check our school calendar for exact dates.
We reserve the right to cancel classes with insufficient numbers (minimum class size is generally 6 children).
COVID-19 UPDATE: We are planning to conduct face-to-face classes in Semester 1 2021 according to our COVIDsafe Plan. However, we may return to online classes if the COVID-19 situation worsens and ACT Government regulations do not allow face-to-face teaching.
