“As a German Expat, I want my son to be able to speak, read and write German as good as English. The teachers at the DSM are friendly, nurturing and their professional manner has helped him settle into school routines quickly and his German has improved significantly.” Jens Kühnberger, Parent

“Bilingual education provides an excellent basis for children’s learning. It has great benefits for literary and numeracy development in English and in this case German, as well as for children’s understanding and experience of the world around them. The model of learning at the Deutsche Schule Melbourne is clearly defined, well developed and supported and serves as a great teaching model in Australia. The benefits of bilingualism to an individual and to society cannot be understated. Bilingual education of the kind provided at this school should be available to all school children in this country. “ Professor John Hajek, University of Melbourne, School of Languages and Linguistics
