Khemika, Thailand

Before I left home I am so excited and when I arrived here I was scared and nervous because my flight had to come down to Sydney airport and connect again to Adelaide. I was very relieved when I arrived in Adelaide.

My homestay family was waiting for me at the airport. After we finished collecting all the luggage, she took me to see the places around the city and taught me things. I have learned a lot of things because it is so different from my home country. And she makes me feel safe, she looks after me like my mother. Every time I when I return from school she always asks me like how I was, everything okay, are you alright and she like to cook Thai food for me.

The first day I came to school, I was worried if I could join with my friend or can I understand what the teacher said in classroom but is not as I thought. All of my friends are good with me and the teachers are very welcoming.

Ning, China

My name is Ning Fan and I am from Luoyang, China. I was an international student of Charles Campbell College from 2010 to 2013. Moreover, it was an honour to be an International Student Captain of Charles Campbell College in 2013. I still remember the time when I was in Charles Campbell College.

My teachers were always very patient and kind to me. I developed my skills in writing and speaking in English with their help and also enhanced the culture understanding of Australia in class. Later, I achieved a satisfactory grade in Year 12 to enter University of Adelaide for the tertiary study in Chemical and Pharmaceutical Engineering. Now I have graduated from this course in May 2018 and I have found a job in a pharmaceutical and biotechnological company in Hangzhou, China. I plan to go back to China for the next few years. However, I will never forget the experience of studying in Adelaide.

This experience helped me to develop skills in the professional area and also abilities for problem solving. I built up the confidence to overcome challenges in my life as well. Finally, I want to say thanks to my family, teachers and friends. Their support and encouragement helps me a lot in my life. I appreciated it.

Being able to come to South Australia is a once in a lifetime opportunity that has been one of the best decision in my life that I have made for my future and learning experience. Although I was thoroughly surprised by numerous other things when I first arrived, I had no difficulty adapting to the Australian way of life. Accommodating myself to the lifestyle here has made me more confident, responsible, and has greatly improved my time management skills. Not to mention, my English has also been improved dramatically. I was only able to accomplish all of the things mentioned due to the support from my parents, host family, and my peers as well as the support system for students at Adelaide High School.


This past 2 years has been an incredibly rewarding experience that has taught me many valuable life lessons as well as leave me looking forward to spending the rest of my high school and university days here.

My time in Australia was simply amazing! A huge thank you to everybody for being so welcoming and friendly. I´m looking back to a great time at Victor Harbor High School, where I had the opportunity to make some great friendships and experiences I´ll never forget!

I enjoyed every minute here, even when the weather was bad. It was so fun to be part of the rugby team, getting my boat license in Marine Studies, going fishing, bike riding and even camping at rainy Deep Creek in Outdoor Education. I also had a nice time at Kangaroo Island, which was unfortunately my only travel around Australia, but I´m looking forward to visit Australia, and of course Victor Harbor, again!

Giulia, Italy

Hi, I’m Giulia.I’m an exchange student from Italy and I have been in Australia for four months now. My first purpose coming to Australia was to improve my English. After this period that I spent here at Seaview High School I can actually say that I have learnt more than just English. I met amazing and friendly people from this country and from all over the world sharing moments that I will never forget.

I had the possibility to study having kind and nice teachers who were always present to help me if I needed. Being a student at Seaview High School here in Adelaide gave me the opportunity to live incredible experiences as for example skiing at Falls Creek & being part of the School Open Girls volleyball team.

I really would like to have more time to spend here next year as part of this community, an experience that I would recommend to everyone.

Koshi chose to come to Adelaide “because Adelaide is famous for art. I have been dancing for about 8 years. So I was looking forward to learn dance as well.”“I am studying Year 11 but doing a Year 12 dance class.” Koshi’s Year 11 subjects are photography, modern history, drama, math apps, furniture and ESL (English Second Language). “I decided to do these subjects because I wanted to study what I cannot learn in Japan. Charles Campbell is really good Arts school, therefore I chose lots of Arts subjects this year.” Koshi is also attending a Dance Studio as an extra.“Because Adelaide is a very small city, you can network with famous dance people and companies. I worked with famous dance choreographers and companies and I talked to these people in workshops. I love the Fringe Art Festival in Adelaide. My most memorable experience is a workshop with the Sydney Dance Company. Sydney dance Company is my dream dance company. That was amazing experience.”

Koshi 2“I spend relax time in Adelaide more than when I was in Tokyo. School, dance and catch up with friends. I have lots of free time so I could think about my future in that time. In Tokyo everything are really busy and fast, so I really like life in Adelaide.”

“After I graduate high school in Japan, I am thinking of studying dance full time. I haven’t decided yet, so I will make decision with my teacher and parents in next year.”
