International Students at Devonport High School
Devonport High School welcomes international students from China, Japan, Thailand, Germany, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and Malaysia through Government Education and Training International (GETI). Other international students who are in Tasmania with their families are from China and Vietnam. We welcome our international students who add to our cultural diversity at Devonport High School.
The focus for all these students is to integrate into Tasmanian school life through involvement in all that this school offers, be it studying subjects from the Australian Curriculum, a variety of optional subjects, sports and extra curricula activities.
International students in Years 9 and 10 participate in regular English classes, where they aim to develop fluency and understanding of English. Excursions in and around the Devonport and northwest area add to their cultural understanding of life in Tasmania.
