Welcome to our international students term 3

​This term we were excited to welcome 35 students from China and their families to our school community.
Whilst immersed in the Australian culture and enjoying the Sunshine Coast lifestyle, the students and their families are utilising the English language skills they have studied in China. The students are enrolled in age appropriate mainstream classes ranging from Year 1 to Year 6 and are enjoying experiencing learning the Sunshine way - including reading, writing, maths, dance, Italian and sport!

Exploring the environment of a new school, culture and language could become a big task - navigating the school grounds, interacting with teachers, making new friends, eating lunch at school and catching the school bus with local students.  However, additional teacher aides have been employed to support the students both on the playground and within classrooms.

The lush natural grounds of SBSS impress the visitors who do not have such beauty at their own schools.

The opportunity to make new friends whilst learning about other countries and cultures has enabled existing Sunshine Beach students and teachers a unique experience and a broader view of the world.  The friendships continue after the students leave, with emails flying across the globe.

We are sure that many memories will be made during these weeks.
