WA Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery announced the development of three new languages for WA schools.
Pre-primary to Year 10 syllabuses for both Hindi and Korean will be adapted from the curriculum developed by the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA).
Year 11 and 12 syllabuses for these two languages will be developed in Western Australia.
Tamil will be fully developed in WA for Pre-primary to Year 12.
In 2021 every student in Year 3-6 at a Western Australian public school will learn a language. The Year 3 syllabuses for Hindi, Korean and Tamil will be available from 2023, with transitional implementation through the academic years.
It is anticipated that Year 11 courses for these three languages will be available to students in 2023.
