Children’s Division

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 of German (if any). 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. 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: Our face-to-face classes operate according to our COVIDsafe Plan.

Saturday Morning Classes

Saturday morning classes are held during school terms at Alfred Deakin High School, Denison Street, Deakin. These classes cater for children of primary and secondary school age (generally 7 to 18 years). Classes run from 9:00am to 11:30am.

Monday Afternoon Classes

Due to a lack of numbers, our Monday afternoon classes were discontinued in 2023. Nevertheless, if you are interested in Monday afternoon classes for your German-speaking child, please get in touch.

Text books and other learning material

Students will have to purchase text books and work books which are available through the school. Students are required to supply their own pens/pencils and note books.
