International Opportunities

As well as the opportunities for international experiences offered directly through the International Services centre, Kristin students benefit from a myriad of activities, events and trips that celebrate the international culture of our school.

International and exchange students join together with language students, clubs, groups and committees to run a series of events and fundraisers throughout the year. One of the major showcases on Kristin's cultural diversity is the annual International Peace Night, a collaborative project between the International Committee and UNESCO Club, which utilises the talents of over 100 students every year. All funds raised from the two-night showcase are donated to an international charity of each groups' choosing.

Language, cultural and service trips offer students from all three schools the opportunity to experience life in a new and challenging environment. For example, some of the recent trips have included a journey for Year 11 and 12 Humanities and Commerce students to Vietnam, a Year 6 expedition to Beijing, an 8-day service trip to Ladakh, India, and a musical tour of the UK for our premier girls' choir, Euphony.

Our International Blogs are a great way to stay up to date with the many local activities and international adventures of our students.
