Indonesian

Our Indonesian program is flourishing at St Mary’s College. We are now studying Indonesian language and culture from Foundation to Year 10! You might even notice the Dayak carved doors at the entrance to the Secondary building. Our language programmes have been developed by Mrs Angela Molinaro and Mrs Jacqueline Cullum.

The Year 10 students can be proud of achieving their VET Certificate II in Applied Language- Indonesian. These students worked solidly over 2 years and in particular this year where the units are based on “workplace language and skills.”

To achieve this their assessment tasks included responding to authentic materials such as job advertisements then apply for a job and attend a job interview.  (That’s tough in any language!!) They also had to respond to telephone messages for a Travel Agency, prepare an itinerary and write a letter of complaint- all in Indonesian.
