Bilingual School

Bilingual School is a project for the Re-introduction of Bilingual Education in the Barossa. 

Initiated by Dr Peter Mickan, Visiting Research Fellow, University of Adelaide, we are planning bilingual teaching of German in the curriculum of schools in the Barossa and region.

International research documents the benefits of bilingual teaching for language learning, for literacy and numeracy development and for efficient use of school resources. Internationally school languages subjects are being replaced with teaching subjects in an additional language.
