Curriculum - Auslan

Auslan, Term 3 2021

This year we have introduced a new specialist area for language at Coral Park Primary School. Auslan (Australian sign language) is a visual form of communication for people who are deaf or hard of hearing. It uses hand, arm and body movements to convey meaning.


The whole school focus for AUSLAN in Term 3 is learning sign language that can be used in the school environment. Students will continue to develop their fluency in signing the AUSLAN fundamentals including greetings, the alphabet and numbers. Students will learn to ask questions around when, where and who at school. Depending on their year level, students will be focusing on being able to recognise, demonstrate and respond to the sign language associated with people (i.e. principal), places (i.e. classroom) and subjects (reading) used in the school community.
