Languages Other Than English – Indonesian
At St. Andrew’s Catholic Primary School, Indonesian is the language that is offered to the students. Learning Indonesian provides students with communication skills as well as an improvement in student’s literacy and cognitive reasoning. At St Andrew’s we aim to foster a ”love of the language and culture of Indonesia”.
There are many benefits to learning a second language including but not limited to
