International Students at St Mary's

International students live in Anne Symington House with boarders from across Western Australia. The Head of Boarding, her staff, and the school's Pastoral Care staff care for your daughter whilst she is at school.

The school's International Student Co-ordinator works with the International Student Group on a range of activities including the organisation of the annual Harmony Week, a Multicultural Food Fair and a Multicultural Assembly. There are also opportunities for St Mary's international students to meet with international students from other Perth schools.

The Australian Government wants overseas students in Australia to have a safe, enjoyable and rewarding place to study. Australia's laws promote quality education and consumer protection for overseas students. These laws are known as the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) framework, and can be viewed here.
