The Asian Studies program at Wonga Park Primary School aims to provide our students with an opportunity to explore cultures outside their own. Starting with Foundation, children are enlightened to the fact that the world is made up of many places and people outside of their own local community. This idea is expanded upon as the students' progress through the school, with a specific focus on Indonesia.
Along this learning journey, students are introduced to many common phrases, songs and words that are spoken in the Indonesian language. Children become immersed through virtual learning with the language, communities, traditions and past times of one of our closest neighbours. Our Asian Studies classroom will see students investigate this region through co-operative group work, interactive activities and children using their iPads as a tool to provide them greater insight into the world of those living in Indonesia.
