Starting in Foundation, through to Year 6, the semi-immersive Japanese program at Syndal South sparks a love for the Japanese language and culture. Our students participate in weekly Japanese lessons where they learn about the Japanese culture, how to read and write Hiragana and speak the language. In addition to the language skills learned from our renowned and native speaking Japanese teacher, our students celebrate with a variety of Japanese cultural experiences including Japanese Cultural Day, Hinamatsuri (Doll’s Festival) and Kodomo No Hi (Children’s Day) and build relationships with sister schools in Japan through Skype sessions. 


We value greatly the importance of language learning, cultural awareness and global citizenship and work hard to provide opportunities for our students to engage with a world beyond their local community.
