ABOUT US

The Croatian School of Language and Culture Melbourne is situated within the Croatian Catholic Centre Clifton Hill as part of a community initiative to maintain and promote the Croatian language and culture.

 

The first ever Croatian School at Clifton Hill campus began in the late 1970’s as part of a growing Croatian community and has been operating on and off since.

 

The current campus is situated at 69 Hodgkinson Street, Clifton Hill VIC 3068 with operating hours between 9am and 12:30pm on Saturdays. The school offers classes in the Croatian language for levels from Prep to Year 10.
