Mount Ridley P-12 College is accredited to deliver the Department of Education and Training’s (DET) International Students Program which provides opportunities for overseas students to enrol and undertake a quality education experience with us. All applications by International Students wishing to enrol into Victorian government schools are directly processed through DET.
Mount Ridley P-12 College is the only coeducational government school in the local area that is accredited to operate a full fee paying International Student program for primary and secondary aged students (5 to 18 years of age). Mount Ridley P-12 College’s program has been devised so as to be integrated into our comprehensive curriculum areas. Our staff are committed professionals who provide a caring and supportive approach to enabling lifelong learning in our students.
The College’s overall student population is made up of families from over 55 cultural backgrounds. This provides for an enriched educational experience which aims to prepare our students to take their place and contribute to the globalised world. Consequently, our International Students Program provides an added dimension to the educational experience of all our students.
Mount Ridley P-12 College is committed to DET’s philosophy of ensuring that students have the chance to develop the knowledge, skills and understandings required to succeed in our interconnected and rapidly changing world. Our International Student program proudly exemplifies this concept through providing continued opportunities to showcase the rich cultures and diversity that both our College community and Australia have to offer. In further support of this concept, our College is dedicated to the development, organisation and implementation of programs that acknowledge and celebrate the cultural diversity of our local community. Projects undertaken to date have included lunchtime and afterschool cultural appreciation projects; cultural festivity celebrations; traditional dance performances; and traditional story telling.
