We value the ideals of an international focus which brings social and cultural diversity to our College. Our International program fosters awareness and understanding between our Australian born students and our International students through an extensive program of academic, social and cultural enhancement. Our aim is to provide opportunities for all our students to develop networks and links which span the global divide.
Parkdale Secondary College works closely at developing internationalism at a number of levels. Our strong International students program provides the opportunities for oversees students to become part of the Parkdale learning community for various lengths of time. Most students live in the Parkdale community and attend Parkdale Secondary College for between six months and three years.
Our College also has close links with overseas schools. We welcome various tours each year and have a designated school exchange to our sister school in Japan where our students experience Japanese life and attend school for up to six weeks. Oversees schools also send students to visit our College for short durations where students experience the Australian way of life for up to two weeks.
Our staff have forged close links with overseas schools and through our involvement in the iNET program of RATL, continue to develop further links with overseas providers.
Students choose to attend Parkdale Secondary College because we provide a diverse curriculum and a welcoming learning environment. Our host families are vetted closely to ensure they provide a safe, secure and stimulating living situation.
We invite you to make further enquires about becoming a member of the Parkdale International family.
