Students from Years 1 to 6 have a 50 minute Indonesian lesson with a qualified teacher. Classes are conducted in the designated LOTE room and students have access to a wide range of resources to support their learning.
Our Indonesian Language program follows the Victorian Curriculum guidelines. The Victorian Curriculum introduction states that "Learning languages broadens students’ horizons about the personal, social, cultural and employment opportunities that are available in an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world.
Each lesson covers Intercultural Language Learning. Students learn Indonesian Language through socialising, informing, creating, translating, reflecting and understanding.
Foundation students learn basic vocabulary including colours, greetings, classroom commands and numbers to 10.
Students in years 1 and 2 listen to and speak short sentences using familiar and new vocabulary.
Students in years 3 and 4 extend their language, learn to include role-plays using questions and answers and numbers beyond 20.
Students in years 5 and 6 combine all learnt language skills from Foundation through to year 4 and include reading and writing in short paragraphs.

Great Ryrie Primary School has a strong commitment to globalising education. Throughout the year we engage guest speakers, host language speaking competitions and celebrate a Cultural Day excursion. The Indonesian program is a major part of this commitment.
