Dapto High School is accredited to provide education for International students (CRICOS 00588M) and has successfully welcomed students from China, Vietnam, Korea, Thailand, Spain and India. We look forward to receiving students from other countries as well.
Our own community represents students from a range of ethnic, cultural and religious traditions and is proud of our indigenous students and their heritage.
International students are welcomed into the orientation program by friendly, enthusiastic students who volunteer to help each student make a smooth transition into the school. They provide ongoing support both in the classroom and in their free time, helping students to form friendships and to feel included at school.
We believe that the opportunity to form strong friendships with people from around the world enriches our education and deepens our knowledge and understanding of other cultures and customs.
International students are offered access to the full range of programs and extra-curricular activities in the school. The International Student Mentor supports their transition into the school and all aspects of their personal well-being while at school. The International Student mentor is available to assist the student until the student has settled into their university studies.
As most students in the school speak English as their first language, it is a positive and productive environment for International students to develop their spoken and written skills in English.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
Jenni Shaw (International Student Mentor)
