In NSW high schools, languages is a key learning area.
Language study allows students to develop communication skills, learn about languages as systems and explore the relationship between language and culture. Students engage with the linguistic and cultural diversity of societies and reflect on their understanding of social interactions.
The study of a language is compulsory for 100 hours in one continuous school year from Year 7 to Year 10, but preferably in Years 7 or 8.
In Years 11 and 12, NSW schools offer a wide variety of languages, catering for beginning students to background speakers.
The Language teacher at Riverstone High School is Miss Soo Park. She is a qualified Japanese and Korean teacher. All Year 7 students undertake 100 hours of study of Japanese.
All students have the option of selecting Japanese as an elective subject in Stage 5 (Year 9 to 10).
Students participate in basic Japanese speaking, listening, reading and writing activities as well as studying Japanese lifestyle and culture. This includes origami lessons and Japanese food appreciation.

We gather and learn on sacred Darug land with respect for, and gratitude to, the Traditional Custodians. We are all connected to this place, its history, stories, plants and animals. This land always was, and always will be, Aboriginal land. We pay our respect to the Elders past, present and emerging, and extend that respect to all Aboriginal people who meet here today. We welcome everyone to walk hand in hand as we continue to build a bright future together.
