English language support at school
EQI-enrolled EAL/D (English as an additional language or dialect) students study core English three times a week. In the junior school, international students will also receive an extra 70 minutes per week of English language support. These extra classes are small and allow for more individualised support and feedback to students across all subject areas.
In the senior school, Education Queensland International (EQI) students are enrolled in smaller sized core English classes (three times per week) and given an additional 70-minute class per week outside of their timetabled classes.
Kenmore State High School international student program also funds a tutoring service. Twice a week after school, EQI students are able to access a tutor to assist them with homework and assessment.
Ms Rebecca Murray is an EAL/D teacher and the International Student Coordinator. Ms Murray assists students with academic and school-based support, liaising with both teachers and students to enable successful outcomes for our international students.
Ms Rebecca Witherspoon is the Homestay Coordinator. Ms Witherspoon can assist students with any homestay enquiries/issues, and also provides regular support to international students.
Our international students have the opportunity to participate in all aspects of school and extra-curricular activities, including subject-based excursions and incursions, school musicals and plays, music ensemble performances, inter-school sports, university level science and mathematics courses to name but a few. We encourage our international students to fully embrace our school community and participate in as many activities as they feel comfortable doing.
