International Students Program

International Students Program
Hervey Bay State High School looks forward to welcoming our first international students in the 2019 school year.
With both the annual whale migration, and World Heritage-listed Fraser Island on our doorstep, Hervey Bay State High School offers a wide range of unique learning and enrichment programs to all students, including Australian life experiences.
With spacious modern classrooms, our teaching programs are academically challenging, innovative and incorporate literacy, numeracy and technology.  Our established working agricultural farm and sports precinct offers students opportunities to expand their learning experiences.  Our school is actively engaged in cultural, academic, sporting and external programs, as well as many extra-curricular activities.
We maintain an unrelenting focus on academic achievement, positive behaviour and involvement in our wider community.
