All students at Linden Park have the opportunity to learn French.

Every class has one 45 minute French lesson per week to develop broad communication skills and explore the French culture.

First Language Maintenance and Development (FLMD)

The school offers it to students who meet the Department for Education’s eligibility criteria in the school’s target language (currently only Mandarin). The aim of the FLMD program is to support eligible students to:
  • respect, develop and maintain their home language.
  • develop language and literacy skills; to provide opportunity for strong conceptual learning that will extend students’ capability for language use.
  • foster a positive sense of self-identity.

Students who do not meet the criteria for the FLMD program are able to access language development through Ethnic Schools or the School of Languages in their out of hours programs. For more information click here to visit the School of Languages website.
