School partnerships

School partnerships provide many language learning opportunities for students, including:

  • facilitating personal experiences to connect with peers in Asia which motivate students and develops language skills
  • building intercultural understanding among teachers and students in Australia and Asia
  • enhancing digital capabilities among participating teachers and students
  • supporting high quality Asian Languages programs in Australian schools.

The Australia–Asia BRIDGE School Partnerships Project connects Australian teachers, students and school communities with their peers in a unique School partnership program.

Sister School Guides assist Australian schools teaching Asian Languages to establish partnerships with schools in Asia:
