Palm Beach Currumbin State High School
Leo from Brazil talks about why he chose to study in a Queensland Government School on the Gold Coast in Australia.
I chose Education Queensland International (EQI) because I always wanted to do an exchange program and therefore being able to come to Australia was a dream come true. Here they actually count as a school subject and you get to improve in it and still have fun at the same time.
When I first arrived my first impression was that the whole structure for students from overseas was very good, The different thing about subjects is here I can choose my subjects and when you choose a subject they have in-classroom activities and they also have activities outside of the classroom. So I can go down to the river here and maybe do canoeing or go out in a physics class and do experiments with real equipment and a real life experience. — Leo, Brazil
