Languages in ACT Schools
In August 2017 an ACT Government newsletter stated that all public schools offer a language education. We wish to a make the following correction:
A number of public primary schools are not able to offer a language program in 2017. These schools are working to try and include language in their curriculum. These schools are:
- Neville Bonner School
- Taylor Primary School
- Charles Conder Primary School
- Richardson Primary School
- Theodore Primary School
- Calwell Primary School
Parents and carers of children attending these schools are welcome to discuss the program on offer by their school with the Principal.

ACT Government Mandarin Culture and Language Grants Program
The ACT Education Directorate’s ACT Government Mandarin Culture and Language Grants Program that commenced in 2015 is due for completion in 2017. Schools and organisations or associations that received a grant of up to $5 000 to promote Mandarin culture and language in the ACT have concluded their programs and a final summary report is being prepared.
