Mandarin program

Rouse Hill Public School is located in Sydney's North-West. In 2010, Rouse Hill Public became one of four schools in NSW to offer our students the bilingual program in Mandarin. The Mandarin bilingual program offers 5 hours of Mandarin instruction per week to 2 classes from Kindergarten to Year 6. In February 2015, a Confucius Classroom was established at our school to further develop and promote Chinese language and cultural education.
