International Students

Westall Primary School welcomes enrolments from international students, both those of parents studying at higher education, and recent arrivals to the country.

Teachers at the school are very experienced and knowledgeable in developing EAL students oral skills, reading and writing and helping them to adjust to life in Australia.


International students participate in special excursions to familiarise themselves with our local area and Melbourne.

Students also have an individual check-in with the international student coordinator each term to ensure that they are doing well here in Australia.
