Park Lake State School welcomes
international students for study tours.
We work with Education Queensland International to facilitate short term
tours for overseas students who wish to visit an Australian school to enhance
their cultural understanding and English language.
It is always a pleasure to welcome
visiting teachers, staff and students to our community and Park Lake State
School. Our school is immersed in a
large amount of local history and we wish to share with you our knowledge, experiences
and Queensland Culture.
The staff and students of Park Lake State
School enjoy interacting and forming long lasting friendships with our visiting
international schools. We have a variety
of staff, who are highly experienced with study tours and are looking forward
to meeting our next visiting group. Our
students, especially those involved in our “buddy program” embrace the
opportunity to extend their friendship and knowledge. It is a great opportunity for our students to
not only teach visiting students about our culture, but also to learn about
International students benefit from a safe

of our families also offer homestay to international visitors. This ensures that visiting students can
benefit from experiencing our unique Australian lifestyle.
