Global Connections


As a part of their studies in Australia, our International Students participate in a variety of activities where they can meet and connect with members of the local community.

Year 10 student, Momoe, recently completed work experience at a local vet surgery where she thoroughly enjoyed learning about animal science in a real-life setting. This experience will be valuable for Momoe in the future as she follows her pathway to becoming a veterinarian in Japan.

Momoe and fellow students, Fabio and Ryu also participated in the ‘Armchair Travel’ program at the Sandy Beach Community Centre. 

Armchair travel provides participants with an opportunity to share their travel experiences and gain a deeper understanding of the history and culture of each person’s country.

Students worked hard in-class and at home preparing their presentations and the audience thoroughly enjoyed having them visit. It was such a success that other students will be offered the opportunity to share details of their home countries in 2019. 

International Student Co-ordinator, Ms Lorna Griss said the students should feel very proud of themselves, as the presentations were interesting and provided a thorough insight of their home countries of Japan and Switzerland. 

“The best thing was seeing them all engaged and participating fully in such a worthwhile initiative. It was extremely rewarding for all students and their audience.”
