Statement of Intent for Internationalising Education At Thomas Mitchell Primary School

Thomas Mitchell Primary School students are supported to become enlightened global citizens who demonstrate intercultural competencies, are socially responsible and civically engaged. We develop their understandings of what it means to live in an interdependent world and how being ‘caring’, ‘connected’ and ‘courageous’ enables them to meet the challenges of their times.

75% of our student population come from backgrounds other than English and together with our culturally diverse staff, they bring an international perspective to our school. The many languages we speak and the diversity of beliefs, customs and cultures are valued and shared. Additionally, the teaching and learning programs (curriculum) promote global, international and intercultural perspectives.

Internationalising schooling is a whole school initiative which occurs to foster a global perspective with the purpose of enriching the learning experience leading to changes in knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours.       







Visit from Dali Experimental Primary School China

We recently hosted 42 students and 6 staff from Dali Experimental Primary School in China.  42 of our students joined them on an excursion to Moonlit Sanctuary and Frankston Pier.  At a special assembly we signed an agreement to establish a sister school relationship between the two schools.  This is a great opportunity for both schools to get to know each other, and the start of further communication between the two schools.
