Student Maturity and Behaviour

As ambassadors for their home country, school and family, visiting students are expected to show a high standard of self-discipline and behaviour and are expected to contribute in a positive and respectful manner.  

As such, we encourage visiting students to use their time away from family to:

Learn and strengthen their decision-making skills

Find motivation to self-manage and succeed in challenging tasks

Develop resilience in unusual or unexpected situations

Manage freedom and independence away from family support

Develop communication skills.

Students who demonstrate unacceptable behaviour will be required to leave the program.
