The Chinese Bilingual Program at Plympton International College

From 2017, Year 3 students have been taught half of the Australian Curriculum in Chinese and half in English. The program has progressively expanded each year to include all students from Years 3-7. The Chinese bilingual program becomes an optional stream for students from Years 8-12, from 2022.

In addition, all Reception to Year 2 students, and students in Year 8, participate in daily lessons of Chinese as part of the program.

The Chinese bilingual program welcomes all students regardless of their background and is designed for children of all ability levels.

Two highly-skilled classroom teachers will work in collaboration to deliver the curriculum in both the English and Chinese languages.

Sister School

Plympton International College currently has sister school relationships with:

Dongfang Bilingual Experimental School (R-9) in Jinan, China

Jiaozhou Experimental Middle School (10-12) in Jiaozhou, China

Through the Sister Schools relationships, we aim to encourage understanding between two countries through the experiences of young people, to specifically encourage the study of languages and promote mutual understanding and intercultural awareness between South Australia and Shandong.

Students may choose to take part in school based visits and study tours to China.
