Whatever the reasons for migration to Australia, as the children of business or skilled migrants, of students or as accompanied or unaccompanied refugees, all Milpera students will receive a high quality education designed to develop their English language skills and equip them for further study. While the development of English language skills is the primary focus, students are also taught Mathematics, Science and Health and Physical Education.
The staff at Milpera are extremely dedicated and well qualified with all English teachers having formal qualifications in Teaching English as a Second or Other language (TESOL). There is a varied program of instruction involving strategies such as camps, excursions, visiting performers and music and art activities.
Teachers are supported by a range of support services including a Guidance Officer, Home Liaison Teacher and art and music therapists based in the school’s unique HEAL (Home of Expressive Arts and Learning) Centre. There is also extensive support from multi-lingual teacher aides and office, grounds and cleaning staff.
At the heart of the school’s learning environment is a very attractive campus with excellent facilities, including well equipped classrooms, shady recreation areas and state of the art computer and science laboratories. Students are, therefore, exposed to a wide range of learning experiences that will prepare them well for life beyond Milpera.
