AUSLAN with Mrs Carson

Welcome to AUSLAN with Mrs. Carson


Pembroke Primary School now offers an exciting new LOTE program. All students Prep to Year 6 are engaged in weekly Auslan (Australian Sign Language) classes.  Auslan is a rich non-verbal language and is the official language of the Australian Deaf Community.




Pembroke students are learning how to communicate without their voices, beginning with iconic signs and fingerspelling. As their signed vocabulary grows and their confidence increases, students will progress towards maintaining signed interactions in Auslan.




Our Auslan classes promote communication and foster inclusion through a range of different activities and learning opportunities. We aim to provide insight into Deaf culture and assist in bridging the gap between Deaf and hearing communities.
