LOTE @ KDPS

We are very proud of our LOTE program as it encompasses both local Peek Whurrong language and culture and other First Nation cultures from around Australia.

We listen to stories of the past and invest in the future of our local Indigenous heritage by working alongside Elders to practice and celebrate our local Peek Whurrong language and culture, encouraging cultural safety, identity and engagement. These lessons take many forms- from special guest visits, incursions, and excursions to local cultural sites, cooking, project work, and many other classroom activities.

The F-6 LOTE curriculum also tackles age-appropriate topics that often divide societies, such as diversity and racism, learning how respect, empathy, and understanding difference can create safe and inclusive spaces for our students at school and people everywhere.
