In addition to English, many students at Killarney are taught Mandarin and the majority of students are also taught French.

LOTE Mandarin is taught once per week to students in non - bilingual by a trained Chinese language teacher. The Mandarin program offers a range of spoken and written language and cultural experiences for the children and Intensive Mandarin is also offered for native Chinese speakers.

Families who have taken up the offer for their children to learn French are placed in classes that have a dedicated Teacher of French supporting the class teacher/s. These students are taught French for up to half the day, where Anglophone and Francophone teachers work together to teach topics in all Key Learning Areas in both languages.

LOTE French is also taught once a week to students in bilingual classes using the AIM method. This encourages Anglophones speak orally in French.

In addition to this, native French speaking children have more intense formal instruction in French.
