Support for school students

All Australian schools offer a strong welfare structure to ensure the ongoing support of every student. These include:

  • International student coordinators present in every school.
  • A student welfare team.
  • Year advisers.
  • School counsellors.
  • Careers advisers to assist students with planning and applying for post-secondary study.
  • English as a second language support staff and programs.
  • Students learn with local Australian students.
  • Accommodation in homestays: all host families must have a police check to meet requirements of child protection legislation and homes must meet required standards; students have a 24 hour emergency contact number.
  • Some schools offer boarding.
