St Aidan’s Anglican Girls’ School, Brisbane, Queensland

Locations

St Aidan’s is a Prep to Year 12 Anglican day school for girls located in suburban Brisbane. Our 750 students have the opportunity to study more than 34 subjects and participate in around 15 different sports. More than one-third of students play a musical instrument. Each year, St Aidan’s students eclipse state and national literacy, numeracy and tertiary qualification standards. Our school population reflects our belief that students experience many benefits in an intentionally smaller school environment.

St Aidan’s Anglican Girls’ School is a unique school. The pursuit of personal best in education drives our strong academic success and our culture of excellence focusing on the pastoral care of each student within our community. We are intentionally small, allowing students the opportunity to represent their school in sport, cultural and service activities and for each student to be known for her individual talents and abilities.

International students come to Australia for varying lengths of time. Short term visiting students generally stay for 2-6 weeks. Medium term placements can be for one school term or semester. Long term students may stay for several years.

Homestay for International Students at St Aidan’s

Homestay is a program of complete immersion into the Australian culture and lifestyle, where students are welcomed into the home of a local family whilst studying at St Aidan’s. Australian homes come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Homestay families may live in an apartment, a townhouse or a freestanding house with a garden.

Australian households are also diverse. Some different types of households are two parents with their own children, an older couple whose children have grown up and moved out of the home, a single mother, a young couple with no children or an extended family where the household also includes other family members such as grandparents.

Australia is a multicultural society and families may come from a range of cultural backgrounds. All Homestay families will speak English in the home, as this is part of the full immersion experience.

Studying in Brisbane provides students with the experience of living and studying abroad in an education system where they are encouraged to think creatively and independently. Further, on completion of their studies your daughter will graduate with an internationally recognised qualification which allows students to pursue further studies in Australia or abroad. Brisbane is Australia’s new-world city, a multi-cultural hub of creativity and invention. It is a diverse city with a fantastic climate. It is a thriving city with one of the fastest growing economies in Australia.
