International Partnerships

As a school we conduct a Japanese Study Tour every second year, and an Indonesian Study tour every other year.

We have a sister school agreement with Hakata High School in Fukuoka prefecture in Japan, and a sister school agreement with SMP Sunari Loka, Kuta.

In 2017 we took a group of 14 students to Japan.

In 2018 we took a group of 9 students to Indonesian for our first ever Indonesian study tour.

This year we are very excited to be taking 24 students to Japan. We are super excited to be visiting our sister school.

We frequently have exchange students from Italy, Denmark and Japan. They are welcomed into our school and join in classes with their peers. This helps them to improve their English and learn about Australian culture. They participate in school camps and outdoor education programs.
