Language School - About the School
Chinese Presbyterian Church Language School (CPCLS) is a not-for-profit Christian organization established in 1968. It has over 45 years history. The school receives government funding from the Community Language Program under the NSW Department of Education and Training.
CPCLS focuses on teaching Chinese culture and traditional values, placing emphasis on cultivating students’ morals. Every year, our school participates in the annual Chinese School Eisteddfod, essay writing competition, singing contest, as well as art contest. CPCLS has great results in these events.
Currently, the school has 20 teaching staff and about 150 students. We offer courses from kindergarten to junior secondary in both Cantonese and Mandarin and also after school activity classes, including drawing and dancing class.
Teaching Principle: In addition to the teaching program, we teach our students to cultivate their moral character, to show respect and care for others, in order to be conscientious members of the community.
About the teachers: Our teachers are fully certified and have many years of teaching experience. They have completed the training courses and seminars required by NSW Education Department. They are dedicated, diligent and caring.
Textbooks for our kindergarten, primary and secondary levels are donated by Sydney Chinese Cultural and Education Centre. These textbooks are specially written and designed to suit the needs of students who are born overseas. The school library also provides Chinese books for teachers and students for reading.
