Proudly serving the community
Persian Language School WA (PLSWA), is a division of Iranian Association Inc, not-for-profit, non-political, charitable community organisation. Persian Language School WA starts serving the Community from July 2009 by holding Farsi reading and writing class for children at Melville Recreation Centre, with the primary objective of maintaining the Persian language and cultures of students from Persian speaking background and the secondary aim of increasing the awareness and understanding of the wider community toward the Persian Language, which is the reservoir of Iranian thought, sentiment, values and literary arts. To respond to the growth in demand from the community, Persian Language School has used the library at “Woodland Primary School” for its classes during the year 2010 and the hall of South Perth Primary School, which had more spaces over the year 2011 and the first semester of 2012. Increasing number of students & teachers and the rapid growth of activities made the school to move again to a more convenient place. From July 2012, the Persian Language School WA operates at Collins Street Centre, South Perth, running Persian Language Classes for young children, children, youth and adults from non-Persian background beginners to intermediate and advanced.
