Since its creation, the FBA has been supporting the creation of a French-English Bilingual Immersion Program within a public primary school in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne. In 2018, Fitzroy Primary School decided to implement a bilingual program where part of the Victorian Curriculum is delivered in French.
Since 2019 the school has introduced an increasing number of hours of teaching in French in the subjects of Literacy, Numeracy and Intercultural Capability, progressively including students from Foundation to Grade 6.
Since 2020, Fitzroy Primary School has enhanced its approach to bilingual education so that English and French are used for both content mastery and language acquisition across a range of subject areas through Inquiry units of study.
