Our Students - L.O.T.E.

 Why study LOTE (Language Other Than English) in Primary School?

 Children learn much easier a second language compared to adults.

 Learning a language has a constructive impact on a student’s overall intellectual growth. Helps students to consolidate their learning in other Learning Areas, not to mention in gaining proficiency in the consolidation of first language.

Studies show that bilingual children display greater creativity, cognitive development and more open minded thinking.

 At Orelia Primary School we learn Italian. My philosophy is that children learn best through fun. As a result, the students are immersed into the Italian culture and language comprehension through motivational hands-on activities.
