St John the Baptist Russian Orthodox Church School

Russian books

Students in our school have various levels of knowledge of Russian language: some are native speakers, and the others have other language backgrounds. Our aim is to give students instructions in Russian language (written and oral), and to introduce them to some aspects of Russian culture, literature, history and art. Particular attention is given to oral communication skills, singing, dancing and drama. These activities and the Foundations of Christian Orthodox Religion are parts of our curriculum. Our teachers either have teaching experience or background in education areas who dedicate their time to the Russian school without remuneration. The school is an established member of ACT Community Language Schools Association and receives grants from the association to maintain the teaching process. Our teachers regularly attend training workshops for teachers of ethnic schools.
