Intensive English Centre

Our Program

Parkwood Primary School Intensive English Centre (PIEC) provides intensive language support for students newly arrived in the country on humanitarian (refugee) visas, migrants and those born in Australia with a language other than English.

The Intensive English Centres provides a specialist English language program:

  • to eligible students who are newly arrived to Western Australia
  • delivered over 12 months
  • delivered over 24 months for eligible humanitarian entrants
  • aligned with the Western Australian Curriculum

On completion of the program students exit the program and will enrol in their local mainstream schools, nearest their home address


Bus Service

The Department of Education provides a school bus service to help families whose children are enrolled in the IEC program, to transport eligible children to and from school. This is a free service. Once children leave the IEC program they must find their own way to their local school. Children are supervised by the bus driver and bus assistant. Parents are unable to travel on the school bus at any time.
