International students

The Gap State High School has hosted international students for over 20 years with students from Asia, Europe and South America being fully integrated into the school community.

Programs offered include short term “Study Abroad” programs as well as programs running for the full five years of secondary education. Through this integration and continued quality ESL support, international students have the opportunity to extend their English reading, writing, listening and speaking skills in a high school setting.

While at the Gap State High School, students stay in homestay accommodation with local families.

They enjoy a high standard of living in spacious and comfortable homes and have the opportunity to learn about the Australian lifestyle. Homestay families work with the school to provide students with a variety of cultural and social activities through which enduring friendships are often formed.

The cultural diversity created by the international students’ program is beneficial for the whole school community and allows the development of students’ understanding of global cultures. It is our vision that this understanding will enable students to develop life-long understanding, tolerance and acceptance of other cultures and nationalities.
