Our International Student Program started in 2014 with only a small number of students. Now we have a growing and vibrant program which currently hosts students from many countries including:
China, Germany, Japan, Iran, Vietnam and Brazil to name a few.
We offer students an opportunity to:
- Extend their education through specialised programs designed to promote success for our International students. Our results consistently place us among the top performing state schools in Queensland.
- Engage in a wide range of academic, social and sporting opportunities to help develop a well-rounded and engaged student. Support staff are on hand to ensure that students have a healthy work/life balance. We pride our-selves on student welfare and like to monitor personal development and social interactions amongst our International students.
- Extend their knowledge of English and Australian culture through integration with domestic students and through our quality homestay programs. School life is the stepping stone to integration, immersion and participation in the Australian way of life, which in turn can only enhance our International students fluency in English.
Our school is part of a culturally diverse school. We value the contribution that international students make to our school. If you are interested in enrolling as an international student at our school, enrolments must be made through EQI
