For 20 years Caloundra Christian College has enjoyed hosting, designing and coordinating international short-term study experiences for a wide range of student tourists. Most commonly East Asian school groups have come to the Sunshine Coast, as they do many parts of Australia, for English language immersion, cultural experience, meeting new friends and enjoying coastal, sunshine-filled tourist activities. But we have had, and continue to have, our share of Western and Eastern Europeans as well as the United States too!
Along the journey, our own College and local community have benefited hugely from interacting with our visitors; so much so that recognition of the value of creating relationships with overseas students has become entrenched in the CCC outlook and identity. Our homestay families, accommodation model is best-practice thanks to our outstanding network of supportive, genuine Australian family hosts.
