About Us

The Italian Bilingual School (IBS) commenced in 2002 as the first school in Australia to provide a bilingual and bicultural education in English and Italian. IBS is inclusive, co-educational and non-denominational and caters for children from Prep class (from 3 years of age) through to Year 6.

The School provides excellence in literacy and numeracy teaching; innovative teaching of thinking skills and social skills; a holistic and a safe and caring learning environment which values the involvement of parents and the wider community.

IBS delivers the NSW Curriculum in two languages in order to provide a program of study which targets the needs of all students. The development of bilingualism is fostered to strengthen the intellectual, analytical and reflective capabilities of students. Strong emphasis is placed on developing mathematical skills to be used across all learning areas and more broadly in studentsí lives.

Our Core Vales

The Italian Bilingual School enables children from all cultural backgrounds to discover the interconnectedness of languages and cultures, and develop intercultural capability. Our bilingual curriculum enables students to become literate as they develop the knowledge and skills for communicating confidently and effectively in two languages.

Through a bilingual model, children gain social, cultural, historical and geographical knowledge of Australia and Italy. The Italian Bilingual School empowers students through the added benefits of a broader education by offering a curriculum that is consistently of the highest standard.

Excellence in Bilingual Education

The Italian Bilingual School offers your child a unique educational opportunity to achieve excellence through bilingualism. The study of Italian offers students a window into a culture of beauty, a vehicle for creative individuality, an appreciation of language and deepens their understanding of cultural diversity.

The Preps program caters for three and a half year-old children, assisting them to adjust to the structured nature of formal schooling.

IBS offers bilingual after-school care from 3.30pm to 6.00pm. Children are cared for in a safe and happy environment under the supervision of a coordinator and an assistant, providing children with personal attention.
