Caulfield Grammar School provides learners with a unique international immersion program, based at our Nanjing Campus in China.

Year 9 students live and study in China for five weeks for this experiential program. Learners engage in an unfamiliar environment and acquire the skills and characteristics associated with real-life learning.

Our Internationalism program is currently unavailable due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our Kakadu Year 9 Program, based in the Northern Territory, continues our commitment to cultural immersion learning experiences for students.

Citizen of the World

Fostering responsible global citizens is a fundamental part of our school’s vision and Internationalism Program.

The Internationalism Program provides our students with a unique opportunity to participate in a project which will enhance their personal development, self-esteem, independence, the discovery of new skills and talents and importantly, encourage them to establish positive, co-operative relationships with peers and with members of staff.

Internationalism program

A profound influence on the evolution of the global community in the coming century

Through the experiences offered in this program, girls and boys will also learn more about the opportunities available to them as members of the globally mobile workforce of the future. They will experience and respond to a different culture and in particular, they will gain an understanding of China’s role as a developing centre of industrial and economic growth and development in the Asian Region.

In Nanjing, from our own purpose-built facility, learners undertake a structured program of five interrelated themes: heritage, work, family, education and environment. Key to this program are the links established with Nanjing Middle School (the high school affiliated with Nanjing Normal University) and the Shuren International School. These links provide our learners with opportunities to come to know Chinese learners and their families and to learn about the patterns of their daily lives and appreciate cultural similarities and celebrate cultural differences.

Caulfield Grammar School students undertake excursions to Beijing, Shanghai and other sites of cultural importance in Jiangsu Province.

Around 400 Year 9 learners take part in the program in Nanjing each year. The Nanjing program is designed to provide learners with opportunities to understand Australia’s global connections and patterns of cultural, economic, social and environmental activity, particularly in reference to Asia.
