Benefits of the English-Japanese bilingual education @ CPS


Since becoming a bilingual school in 1997, Caulfield Primary School has established itself as a school of choice especially for those wishing to provide their children with a bilingual education

  • We don’t teach a language; we teach in a language!

Research and experience suggest that children who have a bilingual education have enhanced literacy skills in their first language as well as generally more highly developed thinking skills.

  • Many of our children leave us with highly developed skills in reading, writing and speaking Japanese, often at a standard equivalent to Year 9 or 10

Our bilingual education provides our children with many unique opportunities and experiences developing not only a strong awareness of Japanese language and culture but also of global citizenship


As one of only 11 bilingual schools in Victoria, Caulfield students receive a unique education


The immersion of our children in an environment in which Japanese is spoken by native speakers, ensures their language development is authentic
