Mandarin – Chinese is the LOTE program delivered at Quarry Hill Primary School from Prep to Grade Six.
In junior years, students are exposed to Chinese traditions and culture through story-telling and viewing of pictures and videos. They learn simple vocabularies, phrases and sentences from songs and games to express themselves.
In the middle years, students expand their vocabulary bank to create short sentences. They practise Chinese characters by taking notes to familiarise with the character strokes and structures. Students make cultural connections through cultural experience such as making Chinese festival items, Kungfu (Chinese martial art).
In senior years, students further strengthen and comprehend their learning via class discussions and cultural activities such as making dumplings, Kungfu experience, Dragon dance, practising the use of chopsticks and Chinese Calligraphy.
