My name is Edmund Chow and I am the International Student Co-ordinator. I work very closely with the Assistant Principal – Ms Karen Dean to provide a quality program for our international students.  We welcome cultural diversity and we have a sister school relationship with China and an annual exchange program with the International Youth Association of Japan (KSKK).  I love my job as I am in daily contact with students from such countries as Germany, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Korea and China. Currently we have 17 international students at our school and we greatly appreciate the cultural enrichment these students bring to the whole school community.

Public Transport: Our school is serviced by several bus routes and is approximately 1 hour from the centre of the city of Melbourne by public transport.  At Fairhills High School the number of international students is limited to ensure that all students receive the individual support and assistance they need.  This enables the school to provide high quality home stay families and a great deal of care and attention for each student at school and at home.  It also allows us to have regular contact with our students' families in their home countries.  We want all of our students to enjoy their time at Fairhills High School.

Fairhills High School has a proven commitment to internationalism, wanting all students to see themselves as global citizens.

Fairhills High School teachers are professional, caring and motivated.  Innovative teaching and staff commitment enable the school to deliver an exceptional and rewarding educational experience.  Fairhills High School offers a wide range of subjects, specialising in Mathematics, Business and Commerce, Science and Information Technology.  The school provides excellent preparation for university entrance.



Applications for enrolment at Fairhills High School are through the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, Victoria.
