Jindalee State School is playing host to fourteen Korean students over the next seven weeks. The students are joining our school to experience learning in an Australian setting and to develop their English language proficiency.
Jindalee has been a part of the international students program for the last ten years in partnership with Education Queensland International. The majority of our students in the tour groups are from Korea. They usually homestay with Jindalee families and their visit allows them to be connected with our school community.
Our other international students come from a range of different countries and enrol at Jindalee for longer term stays, usually of a few years. Our school is a popular choice for international students and we currently have sixteen students enrolled at the school either as fee paying or eligible visa students. While our international students benefit from the educational opportunities our school has to offer, our own students and staff also benefit from the opportunities working with students from other countries brings in developing our knowledge, understanding and culture.
With a broad range of activities occurring this term, there will certainly be plenty of opportunity for members of our community to meet and interact with our international students and to show them the same courtesy and support we give to all guests in our school.
