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. Here at Cowra High School we study Japanese in Year 7. In Stage 5, you have the opportunity to study Japanese for a further 100 or 200 hours as an elective subject, In Year 11 and 12 we offer both Japanese Beginners and Continuers as part of the HSC.

Our school has a rich history in Languages with our connection to Seikei High School and the opportunity to regularly engage with cultural activities aroung the Cowra Breakout.
