We finished 2015 on a fantastic note with a visit from the Deputy Premier, James Merlino. He arrived with the great news that Brunswick South Primary School is to become the first Italian Bilingual School in Victoria, as well as the first bilingual school to be established in Victoria since 1997. In addition we received a languages grant from the Department of Education for 2016. SBS has published the following articles on this wonderful development at BSPS: Boost for bilingual learning in Victorian Schools, and Italian bilingual primary school to open in Melbourne.
