Co.As.It. is proud of its over 40 years of service to the Italian-Australian community. Co.As.It. was established in 1968 to fulfil two distinct aims: to promote the Italian language and culture in NSW and to assist the growing number of migrants arriving from Italy. Since this time Co.As.It. has evolved to meet the changing needs of the community. Being true to our initial objectives, we have continued to expand services in the areas of education and community services. Co.As.It. provides Italian language classes to adults and children both during and after school, Italian language resources via our Italian Multimedia Resource Centre, Bilingual storytime for children, customised Italian language classes for business, language certification and professional development opportunities for teachers. In the community services area, Co.As.It. provides aged care services and a wide range of community services, from youth and family to mental health, to problem gambling to many more. Finally, Co.As.It. fully owns and operates an Independent primary school, the Italian Bilingual School where the NSW curriculum is delivered both in Italian and English.
