AUSLAN

The Auslan Program

At Willmott Park Primary School, Auslan is offered to Grade One’s and Two’s.

The students have Auslan once a week for fifty minutes lesson. The Auslan program teaches students to understand the role of language plays in communicating with others and conveying messages without using their voices.

The study of Auslan contributes to overall education of students, particularly in;

  • Communication
  • Cross-cultural understanding
  • Literacy
  • General knowledge
