Students in years 9-12 at HBHS have the opportunity to study a wide variety of languages not offered here at school, by studying with the state’s leading language educator via distance education with the NSW School of Languages, located at Petersham.

The school offers 12 languages to students if the language is not offered at HBHS. The courses conform to NESA requirements and therefore can be studied as courses for completion of ROSA and the HSC.

Languages available include: Chinese, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latin, Modern Greek, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. Courses are at Beginners, Continuers and Extension levels.

Student learning is provided at HBHS during the regular school day and is supported through a diverse program of written materials, telephone lessons, online activities, email, face to face study days at the Petersham campus, excursions and even overseas tours.

Students studying languages at HBHS have their courses worked into their daily timetable here at HBHS. Studying via the NSW School of Languages not only provides students with wonderful opportunities to study a wide variety of languages, but also provides opportunities to develop valuable skills in time management and independent learning.

Many HBHS students have successfully completed courses for both ROSA and the HSC via NSW School of Languages and have found the experience enjoyable, rewarding and successful.

Applications are now open for students in Years 8 and 10 and close on 16 November 2019.

Earlier application is highly recommended to ensure availability.

Any students interested should see Ms Symonds in the History staffroom for more information and an application form.

Information is also available on the NSW School of Languages website
