Internationalising Education 


We are living in what is being called "The Asian Century".  Our young people are living in an era of unprecedented change where we are all now "Global Citizens".  We may be born in a particular country but many people will spend part of their working life or recreation time living in different countries or working directly internationally as part of their work.  We believe our students need the skills, knowledge and understanding to be able to relate to other particularly our near neighbours in the Asian region to meet the challenges and opportunities of living and working in the Twenty First Century.

We have hosted Korean visitor and have had our students visit 7 times over the last 12 years.  Our last Student Tour was in 2016 and we expect to travel again in September 2018.

Indonesia

We have this language as our LOTE and have supported the school in Ubud over the years. 
We are part of a teacher exchange program and will host teachers on Dec 2016 and March 2017 in our school.  This will enable authentic cultural exchanges and increased intercultural understanding.

Malaysia

We are part of the Bridge Program which links schools in different counties to share and learn from each other.  We hosted a teacher from Malaysia early in 2015 and Paul Brock went and worked with them in April.  It was a wonderful exchange with students continuing to share about their lives with technology supporting them.

We are part of the the Eastern Regions "Internationalising Education" program having staff visit and establish links in India in 2012 & 2013.  We hosted a visiting Principal from our Sister School in New Delhli.
