Welcome to the German Immersion Program in the ACT Survey
Thank you for taking part in our survey!

The German Immersion Program Parents & Friends (GIPPF) is working towards the establishment and implementation of a German Language and Culture Program in a new public primary school in Denman Prospect when it opens in 2021, which includes a German Immersion Program (a bilingual program in German and English).

Currently there is no public primary school in the ACT that offers a German language program. As a result, there is an unmet need in the community.

The GIPPF has prepared a business proposal in consultation with the Education Directorate and is now also collecting further information from the community regarding interest in this initiative. The results of this survey and the business proposal will be presented to the ACT Minister for Education and Early Childhood Development, Ms Yvette Berry, for her consideration.

We really appreciate your time to complete this survey - You could be providing us with information we need to implement a German Immersion Program in the ACT!

If you have any questions about the survey, please email us: german.primary@spielwelt.org.au

Kindest regards,
German Immersion Program Parents & Friends
