The Scandinavian School in Canberra, Swedish Section, was founded in 1986. We adhere to the curriculum of language education established by the Swedish National Agency for Education. Our parent organisation is the Scandinavian Australian Association in Canberra http://www.scandinavianaustralian.org.au. The school provides Swedish language lessons to children and young people (6-18 years of age) for whom at least one parent speaks Swedish at home. At present, there are no classes in Canberra in the other two Scandinavian languages, Norwegian and Danish.
