International Student Program


This term we welcome fifteen new International students from Brazil, Germany, Italy, and Japan.  The enthusiastic group of students are joining Years 9, 10 and 11 and are already enjoying their stay in Australia and settling into classes quickly and comfortably.  Our local students are very welcoming and accommodating and assist the International students navigate the school campus. We thank our home stay families and parents for providing additional support to the students and helping them to feel welcome.

The International Student Program includes five surfing lessons with the students having their first experience in the Coolum surf recently.  Many were catching waves straight away and with wetsuits, they found the water temperature to be warmer that they expected.

The International Student Program also offers our students, families and community an opportunity for cultural exchange with students from other countries and developing global connections and friendships and of course, we also have the privilege of showing off our wonderful part of the world.  Our home stay families are really excited to host the International students and walk them through their journey of living the Australian way of life.

Should you have any enquiries regarding this program or to find out about how to become a home stay family, please contact Terri Shine on 5471 5333 or 0418 185 809.
