International Student Support Services

Como Secondary College

International students are supported by a Deputy Principal, an International Student Program Coordinator, College Counsellors and highly experienced caring teachers. Special orientation and pastoral care programs enable International Students to develop friendships with each other as well as domestic students. This enables them to feel welcome within the College community.

The school has a very strong focus on pastoral care, based around a year system. Each year group has a Year Coordinator to foster the school ethos. A positive rapport exists between staff and students. The personal development and academic progress of students is monitored by the Student Services Team. This team is lead by the Student Services Manager.

Counselling in career issues, subject selection, study skills, and social and emotional problems is available through the Careers Coordinator, the Aboriginal and Islander Education Officer, the College Psychologist and the College Chaplains. The College Nurse is available for counselling in health matters. These people provide a strong network of support for students.

International Students’ Coordinator

International students have additional support through the International Students Coordinator. The person in this role provides individual identification, intervention and support services, including individual education plans, comprehensive career guidance and English language support for students. This person works as an advocate, helping international students voice their concerns and opinions as well as organising events and activities.
