Language Immersion Tours
China Cultural Exchange
Taking place over three weeks during the third term break, the first part of the tour is spent in Shanghai, where students enjoy a homestay experience whilst attending school at Walford’s sister school, Shanghai No 3 Girls’ High School. The second part of the tour is spent visiting places of historic and cultural significance from a base in Beijing.
As part of the Spanish curriculum, students are welcome to participate in the Spanish Tour. Taking place in December, the tour involves a three week homestay experience and study tour in Granada.
As part of the Walford French Program, students in Years 10, 11 and 12 are invited to participate in a homestay and high school experience in France. With our external partner, Nacel Australia, the tour involves a three day Paris experience before students head individually to homestay families in a nominated region in France. During the 5 week homestay, students attend school locally and enjoy a French Christmas holiday with their homestay families. The French Tour is a memorable experience where life long friends are made, French cultural and language understanding improves and personal growth occurs.
