  1. Is this being broadcast in Australia this year? It should be as there is focus on foreign language learning (LOTE, Languages Other Than English) in schools nowadays. It’s a show that the school age children can learn from leisurely without pressure, even as a basic introduction to foreign cultures and languages.

    1. The Junior Eurovision Song Contest hasn’t been broadcast in Australia since 2019. ABC used to have the rights, it reverted back to SBS, and they’ve essentially lost interest in it.

      1. It should be on SBS at least, if not ABC ME. SBS educational programs and shows, such as Child Genius, Letters & Numbers and even School Torque will be listed in additional school documents.

        1. Honestly, I think it’s weird SBS aren’t broadcasting it either. It would cost almost nothing to air, and would probably even be sold in as part of the regular Eurovision package. They could air it on delay and at a time that would work well for kids and teens. I get that it’s not a ratings powerhouse, but part of being a public broadcaster means that not all of your programs need to be about ratings and can instead be about cultural and educational importance.

          1. That’s true. I agree, as it’ll be on the VOD services, or be added to school library archives. It doesn’t matter if Australia has an entrant or not. Many students are speaking languages other than English at home.
