International Mindedness is a defining value at Glenunga International High School and our inbound and outbound study tours allow students to develop their potential as internationally minded, critically thinking, responsible citizens.

We pride ourselves on building strong global relations with schools across the world. Each year GIHS welcomes delegates and students from a number of schools who visit us annually and we also offer our students a variety of language and cultural tours to international destinations. These opportunities provide exposure to different cultures and languages; exposure that can only be acquired by interacting within a different cultural setting or with people of another cultural background.

Upcoming Tours Abroad

China Language and Cultural Tour
19 April 2018 – 1 May 2018

The China Language and Cultural Tour will enable students to be immersed in the daily life and culture of people living in China. Students will tour Beijing and Shanghai with a day trip to Hangzhou. One of the foci of the tour is for students to engage in language activities directly from teaching staff at Beijing Chinese Language and Culture College. Students from GIHS will have real-life opportunities to connect with the foreign students studying Chinese.
