Onsite English Language Centre (ELC)

In order to provide a quality and consistent English Language Training prior to starting mainstream courses, we have selected some of the most experienced teachers, who also teaches in the mainstream classes, to teach in our onsite ELC. They focus, not only English as a language, but also studying subject related terminologies like Physical Education, Mathematics and Science. Furthermore, we have integrated many extracurricular activities throughout the six month program, such as School Production, attending a professional Australian Football game and off-site excursions to enrich their understanding of the culture to assist in adjusting to the new environment.

Studying in our on-site ELC also means the student stay with our homestay, which makes the transition from ELC to mainstream classes much smoother.

专属语言中心

 为了给国际学生提供稳定和优质的初期语言训练课程,瓦尔特纳中学开设了自己的语言中心。校内的专业英语老师不但给学生提供高质量的学术英语教学,而且还设置了丰富的教学大纲,结合体育课程,兴趣选修课和包括短途旅游这样的多元教学方法来帮助新来的留学生了解当地的文化、将英语融入自己的生活。与此同时,校内语言中心更是利用得天独厚的优势,给语言中心的学生提供大量参与校内活动,以及和自己未来的学科老师交流的机会。

在我校语言中心学习的学生不但避免了在外校学习语言后转换寄宿家庭的烦恼,而且他们还能够在与我们学校提供的寄宿家庭磨合的同时,适应高中部的环境和教学模式,从而在语言中心毕业后能快速的适应主流高中的学习课程和节奏。

Academic Excellence

Wantirna College provides more than 30 VCE subjects students can choose for their university entrance exam in Australia. This gives student the opportunity to study areas of their interest and maximize their strengths. At the same time, extra-curricular activities such as debating, art club, music club, school production, camp, peer support and school captaincy truly enrich their experience outside of the classroom and provide leadership opportunities at the school.

We understand the importance of keeping parents informed about their child’s progress, especially for the parents of international students. We set up individual accounts for parents so that you can follow and review academic progress of your child on our Learning and Management system, Compass. You will be able to access child’s attendance, classroom behaviour, assessment tasks, teacher comments and also any major school events on any computer or mobile device. Our International Student Program team will also provide you with a school report each term and contact you individually to discuss the needs of your child.
