@Gladstone Park Primary School


At Gladstone Park Primary School, the students are given the opportunity to learn Italian and find out more about another culture, language and way of life.

The students in Grades 4, 5 & 6 are engaged in a variety of activities which incorporate the different learning styles. For example: songs, games, speaking / listening, reading & writing tasks, role plays, ICT, DVDs and films.

The Languages program utilises the school’s Market Garden by providing  classes with the opportunity to pick, sort and preserve olives that are growing. Students are then able to take home and share their olives and newly acquired learning with family members.

As part of the fantastic program that GPPS offers, we provide the students the opportunity to participate in a regional poetry competition.

Click on the following audio files so that the students can listen and practise.

Here’s the link to the actual poems with translations.

Here’s the Grade 5 poem.

Here’s the Grade 6 poem.

Have fun and good luck in the competition!
