HIP – Hebrew Immersion Program

UJEB is proud to offer the HIP program now at 5 schools and a new combined Jewish life and Hebrew after school program at Elwood Primary.

HIP is a successful Hebrew language program for over 10 years. It began as a parent led initiative and at their request the management was taken over by UJEB in 2018. The secret of success is that at the centre of each HIP is an active and committed parent body known as the HIP committee. The HIP committee is responsible for the direction and oversight of HIP at their school.

We have set up each HIP in consultation with parents and as such at different schools HIP can look a little different.

Learning outcomes have been developed with the parent body and differ according the time allotted and educational outcomes sought.

HIP is at the following schools:

Caulfield Junior College (CJC): Mon, Wed & Thursday, 8am – 8:50am

Caulfield South Primary School (CSPS): Mon, Tues & Thurs, 8am – 8:50am

Gardenvale Primary School (GPS): Tues & Fri – 8am – 8:50am

Tucker Rd Bentleigh Primary School (Tucker Rd): Wednesdays 3:45 – 5pm

Coatesville Primary School (CPS): Tuesdays 3:45 – 5pm

Elwood (EPS): Thursdays 3:45 – 5:15pm

The Elwood program is different to HIP, with a dual Jewish life and Hebrew curriculum. Please contact the office for a course outline.

The prime objective of HIP is to provide a dynamic, and rigorous Hebrew language program.

The purpose of HIP is to teach students to communicate effectively in Hebrew by developing speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. HIP graduates will be armed with knowledge and skills to engage in further Hebrew language study at secondary school.

An onsite coordinator is responsible for the program, with carefully chosen and experienced teachers to ensure quality learning.
