Swahili School

Swahili School

The Kenyan Swahili School of Adelaide was founded in 2009 and continues to operate during the school terms.

Lessons are held every Friday from 4:30PM-6:30PM at 59 Gladstone Avenue Kilburn and Sunrise Christian School, 286 Sturt Road, Marion.

Students enjoy lessons that are fun and held in a safe environment.

All the teachers are screened by the Department of Education and have an outstanding command of the Swahili language.

The Kenyan Swahili school of Adelaide is accredited and registered by the government as an Ethnic School and is overseen by the Ethnic Schools Association of South Australia (ESASA).

The school is run entirely on a volunteer basis by a management committee and volunteer teachers and aims to provide a great opportunity for Kenyans to socialize with other families and their kids, providing an amazing third space for students to learn Swahili and the Kenyan culture. Excursions at the end of every term are a popular outing that all students and their parents always look forward to.
