Student Support Services

Members of staff are fluent in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese, Italian and German.
Welfare and mental health support via both the International Student Coordinator and the Fairhills High School onsite Student Welfare Coordinator. The Coordinator works closely with a specialist pastoral support team to ensure the ongoing welfare and mental health support for international students. This team consists of a Student Wellbeing Coordinator, Associate Principal, Guidance Officer, Chaplain, Social Worker, and a Psychologist. Should the need arise, the International Student Coordinator will report back to the parent.
Around the clock, emergency access to the International Student Coordinator and the Associate Principal should - in an unlikely event - a critical incident occurs.
The International Student Coordinator is experienced in student welfare support and services that are available to support international students include:
Meet and greet and welcome reception at Melbourne airport and on-campus orientation support.
Homestay placement for the student and then the ongoing liaison between the school, parents and student.
Ongoing monitoring of students’ academic progress and support to students and parents who are welcomed and encouraged to contact the International Student Coordinator about any topic that they would like to discuss within the school business hours.
A translated and English progress report is sent to the parents twice a year. Parents can also access online student information via COMPASS.
