In Chinese, we value students’ ability to confidently express, exchange, and negotiate meaning to understand the world around them.

Students feel a sense of belonging and support within a safe environment when entering a Chinese classroom. They engage with the language and culture which strengthens their understanding and knowledge of linguistic structures and fosters their intercultural understanding whilst promoting tolerance and respect towards others.

In Chinese, we believe that Lakes Learners are critical and creative thinkers who use their intellectual flexibility to engage with the challenges of learning another language. Our students develop these 21st century skills to become successful global citizens.
