International Students



"We came to Caloundra City Private School in November 2011.
We had problems speaking and listening English when we came here however after spending time in Australia for a few months, our English skills started improving as well as our school results. This is thanks to the support of our host family and our school teachers at CCPS.
The study schedule and many assignments is really hard sometimes but when we remember about that later, we realised that it is a really valuable experience for our future life. We are so glad that we have been able to meet the expectations of the teachers. We would recommend CCPS and the community to anyone seeking International schooling."
