Languages Parent Support Committee

Does your child learn a language at Mount Lawley?

Did you know that all students learning languages at Mount Lawley Senior High School also get opportunities to take part in a range of extra cultural experiences?

These include experiencing the wide range of food and entertainment for Languages Week, a Language Soiree evening, hosting of exchange students, school-hosted exchange staff, and opportunities to attend talks by people who speak the different languages and have experienced the various cultures.

With MLSHS being a Language Specialist school, ALL language students get the benefits of an enriched Language learning environment.

The Languages Parent Support Group is a subgroup of the School's P&C and our role is to help the language teaching staff with organising these great extra cultural experiences for the students, along with fundraising to allow these activities to occur.

Minutes of our meetings are available from the P&C Website.

We hope you will join us in helping to make our children's language experience at Mount Lawley a happy and exciting one.

A Welcome Evening is held in first term, where new parents can meet other parents and some of the Languages teachers.

Please go to the P&C website for further information or to join the P&C Mailing List.

We also encourage you to select the "Languages" option in the Mount Lawley app to get any phone notifications.

How can you help?

You can help in any or all of these ways:

  • Providing a plate of food for students to enjoy as part of the activities ... Usually there are about half a dozen activities during the year, but no need to provide a plate for all of them!
  • Attending the Languages Parent Support Group Meetings ... Held twice a term @ 7.30pm on a Wednesday - all welcome - come to as many as you can!
  • Any other help as requested by the teachers to assist in running these language and cultural activities ... eg Help with running a stand for the Languages Week

If you would like to get involved, please fill in this form and return to your child's language teacher.

Don't worry - If you say you can provide a plate of food or other help, you won't be expected to be there for every activity!
