Japanese

The nationally agreed goals for schooling affirm that Young Australians need to be Asia Literate and be able to communicate across cultures especially the cultures of Asia.

About our Japanese programs

Japanese is the language and culture of focus at Durack School. Teachers from the NT School of Languages teach the Japanese language to students from Year 1 to 6. We are hoping to extend the program to Transition students in 2016. The range of activities in the Japanese classes include speaking, listening, reading, writing, singing, calligraphy, art and drama.

Durack Preschool is the only preschool in the Northern Territory to have been selected for the 2015 Early Languages Learning Australia (ELLA) trial. This national program introduces the Japanese language through apps on ipads. The apps are designed to engage young children through games and songs etc

This project involves technology, script writing, mathematical and acting skills as well as a level of competence in speaking Japanese.
