Italian at St Mary of the Angels

Italian is the language of St Francis of Assisi. Italian also has a strong link with our local heritage through the Italian migrant community who set up local businesses, orchards and dairy farms in our area. Learning Italian at St. Mary of the Angels is about celebrating this heritage and challenging the thought processes, building problem-solving skills and learning about how language works. The Italian Curriculum integrates knowledge of language patterns, listening skills and oral communication with cultural awareness; providing opportunities for stronger literacy skills.

Italian Language Study is compulsory in Years 7 and 8. It is offered as an elective in Year 9.
