Full accreditation

for Tingalpa State School
Tingalpa State School has become the first Queensland school to receive full accreditation (from prep to year 3) by the French Ministry of Education and the French accrediting agency, AEFE (Agence pour l’enseignement francais à l’etranger), – and the 6th Australian school to receive full accreditation -thanks to its French-Australian Bilingual Program that launched in 2015.

Their Binational program takes the command of both languages to a very high level, by merging the two curricula and enhancing teaching practice.

This accreditation also means that the Queensland public school meets the requirements of the French government and is now recognised internationally as a French primary school.

Congratulations on this wonderful achievement!


The French education system has a network of nearly 500 accredited schools across the world which are recognised as French schools through the accreditation process. This network of French school abroad is coordinated by a French government agency named AEFE (Agence de l’Enseignement du Français à l’Etranger). The Agency for French Education Abroad (AEFE) is a government institution supervised by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The AEFE is the guarantor of the French education system abroad. It plays a key role in expanding France’s cultural and linguistic influence throughout the world and serves to boost the appeal of French higher education.
