Study Tours


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 yours.

International students benefit from a safe and supportive school environment.  Many of our families also offer homestay to international visitors.  This ensures that visiting students can benefit from experiencing our unique Australian lifestyle.

Opportunities that are available at Park Lake SS for international students are:

Japanese – our senior students have the opportunity of Japanese Excellence classes and this provides a great platform for significant cultural exchange

Sport – our students access sporting activities each week as a part of their regular curriculum

Arts – our students have regular access to the arts within their curriculum and also have the opportunity to participate in Band, Strings or Choir 

ICT – all of our classrooms have state of the art ICT infrastructure which is used in daily lesson

Our school community over the years has thoroughly enjoyed developing and progressing these very special, long term international relationships into the future.
