Newlands Primary school

Spanish Bilingual Immersion School


Newlands Primary School is the only Spanish-bilingual primary school in Australia. At NPS, Literacy and Numeracy are delivered in both English and Spanish. Students at NPS receive five hours of Spanish literacy and 3 hours of Numeracy. The bilingual approach we use is immersion, where students are immersed in the Spanish language through targeted, explicit teaching in engaging, real-life learning contexts. This approach fosters rapid acquisition of vocabulary and facilitates students’ ability to respond effectively in the target language.

In our bilingual program, both English and Spanish classroom teachers collaborate closely to ensure coverage of the Victorian curriculum while actively seeking out cross-linguistic connections. This integrated approach enables students to develop fluency in both languages while gaining a deeper understanding of diverse academic concepts and cultural perspectives.

Our school is proud of the role we play in our community and we take pride in our welcoming atmosphere. At Newlands, students, teachers and parents all actively participate in the learning partnerships.
