Geelong is a peaceful and picturesque place. There’s vivid blue seas, bright meadows and clean air. You can also see beautiful stars up in the sky at night. The environment here is magnificent and spectacular. Every international student will absolutely enjoy life studying in Geelong.
There are a number of grad schools to choose from; such as Geelong Grammar School and Geelong College. I believe that international students can benefit from the education provided in these schools and graduate as remarkable people.
There are many shopping centres and restaurants in Geelong. International students will find it easy to shop for what they need and look for food that they like. Life is extremely relaxing and enjoyable here.
I would recommend Geelong to future international students.
Today is the 103rd day I have been in Avalon College which isn't a long time, but they are unforgettable days in my life. In these days, Avalon College really makes me feel here is my second home. Thank you to all my friends especially my housemates who made Brown House so much fun at Night. Also, I want to thank my friend Jacky Z who always chatted with me at night. He inspired me when I was at my lowest point. Moreover, I want to thank all the staff and teachers Avalon College. I still can remember the morning staff always saying "How are we? Are we Happy today?" I can also remember the staff always making sure that we were organised before homework, and Mr Parkin who said "See me at 5 o'clock" and showed me how to do gardening.
I have been in Australia for more than half a year but the days in Avalon College are the happiest days for me. Next week I'll start High School and I'll miss all of you. I hope you will all miss me in the future. I hope you will all go to High School soon.
Geelong is a suburb that is advanced in education area. There are also several excellent high school which located in Geelong. The teachers are professional and experienced. The school also has cultural history. Take Geelong Grammar School as an example. The school is successful and helps hundreds of international students get a satisfied grade in VCE and IB.
The schools at Geelong also had a good communication with the international student’s family. It also builds up a co-operative system in helping us, which was effective and significant to protect our safety and personal rights.
I first heard about Geelong when I decided to further my study in Australia. An online agency strongly suggested that I could come to Geelong to study. The advantage of the education at Geelong sounds exactly like what I expected. Thus, I came here to further my study.
One reason that pushes me to come to Australia for study is that compares with China, the education at Australia is more suitable to me. From where I'm, standing, we need passion and effort to enhance ourselves. That's why I chose Geelong.
