Teaching and learning resources

Our teachers and volunteers have developed stage-based units of work. Student learning outcomes are taken from the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) K-10 Punjabi language curriculum.

These resources are licenced as Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International and are free to view and download for Punjabi language teachers and parents.

Stage 2

Stage 2 students are encouraged to read and write in Punjabi using vocabulary that they learn in the units of work. They engage in short assignments and meaningful projects that help them to communicate and collaborate with their peers, family and friends.
