Primary schools throughout Victoria, Australia offer high quality learning in a caring environment and welcome international students. Young international students can enrol in any Victorian Government primary school if there is a place available for them. Applicants are to apply directly to DET International Division directly and they will do their best to place your child at a school that suits them and is close to their new home. We host International students at Huntingdale Primary School on a regular basis.
