Our school has been enriched through taking International Students for many years. Generally these students are in Australia accompanying their parents who are studying at the local university or visiting our country to improve their English language skills.

The students are well cared for and their academic and wellbeing needs are paramount to our school. Parents are supported in accessing services and information as required.

Our community embraces the multi-cultural culture in our school that is further enhanced through the International Student Program.
