Dual Language Education

Perth’s only French Hybrid Education Programme for primary and secondary school students commenced this month at the International School of Western Australia (ISWA) in City Beach. Delivered in French and English, the programme offers a good balance of subjects from both the Australian and French curriculum.

With nearly 10,000 French-Australians living in Perth, ISWA sees this programme as an opportunity to augment the native education of its French students. It highlights the importance of language and culture and reflects the school’s progressive, internationally-minded approach to education.

The French Hybrid has been created in alliance with ISWA and two French-based companies, TechnipFMC and Total.  Thirty French students have been invited to trial the hybrid education for 12 months. ISWA is already highly regarded for its globally recognised education models such as the International Baccalaureate, and American Advanced Placement High School courses.

“Adding a French curriculum is another way to develop global thinking and cultural respect. We are very excited about this innovative international teaching and learning programme. We anticipate being able to offer the programme in the next academic year to a broader group of students,” says ISWA Principal, Maria Coate.
