In the integrated studies program in the afternoon classes there is an average maximum of 18 students, giving students the opportunity to use their skills in a larger classroom environment. Our classrooms are arranged so that students are encouraged to be actively involved in the class. Teachers can move around the class and check on progress as the students are working on their given tasks.

I have been to study in Australia since September 2016, everything here is perfect. I have a great school. I made a lot of good friends from different countries such as China, Japan, Korea, and Thailand. They are all very kind and friendly.
There are so many fun things that I can do in Geelong. There are lots of shopping centers in Geelong. I can buy anything I want. I also can eat a lot of types of food, it's extremely easy to find. The location is pretty lovely, the fresh air, the weather. My school is next to Avalon Beach so I feel very relax and peaceful.
The best thing I like about Geelong is Geelong has a lot of good schools such as Geelong Grammar and Kardinia. They are all intensely popular with a wonderful education. I believe that foreign students really want to get into one of these schools to study.
I also think everybody will fall in love with Geelong like I did.

Hello everyone. I really enjoyed this time at Avalon College. Thank you to every teacher that has taught me, especially Ms Jones for making our class more fun and interesting. Ms Jones, I will always remember your evil laugh and you crazy dance which you always performed in class. Thank you to all the students in Avalon when I am sad because they always cheer me up. Thank you Mrs Akila for your food, it always will cheer me up especially seconds. Thank you BHS staff and Mr Parkin for taking care of me. Thanks to all of you. Bye Bye.

Good afternoon everyone. I am sorry to disturb your lovely lunch. Today is my turn to do a speech and the time I must leave Avalon College. Although I have only stayed in Avalon College for ten weeks, I received plenty of knowledge about English and Boarding Life.
During this ten weeks, there are many people who I should appreciate. Firstly, I am grateful to my teachers who taught me a variety of English skills. Furthermore, I am thankful to the staff who restrain our negative lifestyle. Thank you to the cook who made delicious food. Last but not least, I appreciate all my friends. You are the priceless treasure and never made me feel lonely.
Tomorrow I will take all the valuable memories and start my new study life in Ruyton Girls' School. Hope to see you again.
