Each year we celebrate ACT Community Language Schools Day which involves many of the member schools who come to share their cultural heritage in the form of song, dance and verse.

Part of the services we provide include running in services for teachers in ethnic schools and interested members of the community, distribute funding to the member schools of the ACTESA and coordinate community events for member schools. 

Our motto is Many Languages - One Voice.
