Academic year

The school year is divided into four terms and runs from late January/early February until December. There is a short holiday between terms and a long summer holiday in December and January.

Students attend school from Monday to Friday each week. School hours vary slightly across Australia but are generally from 9.00 am to 3.30 pm each school day.

Culture and sport

Australia's school curriculum caters for a wide range of student skills and interests. Drama, music, art, debating and public speaking skills, along with team and individual sports activities, are all enhanced through inter-school collaboration and competition. Schools also arrange for private tuition and provide elite programs designed for talented international students. Purpose-built learning centers and sports facilities offer the ideal environment for the academic and personal development of international students. This wide variety of artistic and sporting pursuits can help students develop organisational and leadership skills, also their independence and confidence.

International Baccalaureate

There are 24 government and non-government schools in Australia offering the International Baccalaureate (IB). Only schools officially approved by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) are authorized to offer the two-year pre-university curriculum for students aged between 16 and 19 years of age. Many students within and outside of Australia take the IB Diploma for admission to leading universities in the Asia-Pacific region. However, students considering a vocational career path should discuss their options with the school.
