German Saturday School Sydney to benefit from $7300 state government grant

The German Saturday School Sydney, which has classes at Grays Point Primary School, will receive $7300 in funding from the state government.

The classes provide primary and high school students with the opportunity to absorb German language and culture from  native speaker teachers.

Cronulla MP and Attorney-General Mark Speakman welcomed the funding, provided under the Community Language Schools Program.

“Community language schools are vital for young people to maintain strong links to their heritage and cultural identity,” he said.

Education Minister Rob Stokes said the NSW Government was dedicated to supporting education in all its forms.

“We treasure and celebrate the diversity of our multicultural NSW community,” he said.

“This is one way the NSW Government can support that diversity.”
