The Spanish Immersion Program is an intensive course that provides students with the deepest possible exposure to a second language and culture. Students enter in Year 7 and receive instruction in at least 60% of the curriculum in the second language through to Year 9.
Maths, Science, Spanish, History, Geography and Physical Education are taught in Spanish providing students with a very high level of language proficiency, linguistic skills, intercultural understanding, and personal enrichment and challenge. Students may have the opportunity to travel to Madrid, Spain, in their final year of the program where they will attend classes at the prestigious Real Colegio Alfonso XII High School.
Beyond Year 9, students in the Immersion Program may complete their Senior Spanish studies in Senior Secondary and may choose to study Advanced Spanish at the University of Queensland in Year 12.
Course requirements: No previous knowledge of the language is required. Interested students will be required to attend an interview.
Applications for expressions of interest in the Spanish Immersion Program will be required by the end of semester 1, 2017. Interviews for this Program will be conducted early in Term 3.
