As part of the Languages in the Mainstream project, WA Languages Week (7-14 August) raised awareness of the benefits of language learning, highlighted the linguistic diversity in our community and celebrated the work of our students and teachers in community language and mainstream schools. Daily public events were held at the Office of Multicultural Interests to award achievement and hear from political and education leaders comment on the role of language learning in our society.
