Testimonial from a CHS International Student ,Victoria, Year 12:
“My name is Cindy Yang, 2020 certainly posed an enormous challenge for everyone, during the COVID pandemic, we have faced a long term lockdown which lead us to stay apart from our teachers, friends and even, for international students, away from our family members.
I would like to show my appreciation towards CHS for always supporting students with their kindness and generosity, their tireless help made us stronger and enabled us to overcome difficulties. Thank you to the school and our International Student Office team for their great efforts in organizing activities such as Lunar New Year celebration, Moon Festival and Christmas Party to let us experience local culture and share various traditions of all other international students.
As international students at CHS, we have the sense of belonging to the school and we have also built a connection with local students. All these activities made us more involved in CHS and created wonderful memories of our high school life.
Thanks once again, for the guidance and patience that all the staff in CHS have given us.”
