We have had the privilege of hosting short stay students from the following countries, Korea, Italy, Austria and France.

These students come for 2 to 3 months during terms 2 and 3 to experience Australian schooling and culture. Here are some of the testimonies of their time spent at St. Philip’s Christian College Newcastle, Port Stephens and Gosford.


“I didn’t have many expectations, I knew that almost everything would be different but I am really happy that I decided to come to Australia, it was a great time!” Theresa Turecek yr. 11 Austria

“I went surfing for the 1st time in my life it was so cool and fun. I really enjoyed it.” Ricardo Ingenito yr. 11 Italy

“it was a really useful experience especially for my English and if I have the opportunity I will return here in Australia another time.”

“It was a wonderful experience for all our family.” The Holts homestay family

"My experience in Australia was my dream and I realised it better that I thought. I will never forget all of this, all my best moment with all of the people that I met. I really think that Australians are the best people in the world: welcoming, charming, friendly, generous... You have too much quality and I can't count all of them....I hope come back one day in your so amazing country! Since I came back in France, each day I think to Australia. Thank you very much to everybody." Louise Varescon
