Schools offering German in the curriculum

As part of the ACT Government’s commitment to multiculturalism and high standards  of education, there is supposed to be a LOTE (Language Other Than English) taught in every school in the ACT.  German is one of the eight languages selected for teaching in the ACT.   Usually a LOTE is taught for 40-60 minutes per week; sometimes more.
