At Wilderness we place value on the global perspectives our international students bring to our community and respect the tremendous challenge the girls have embraced by choosing to study in their second language.
Wilderness Boarding House welcomes students from all cultural backgrounds and values the contribution each girl makes to ensure all our girls develop and appreciate cultural perspectives and become respectful global citizens. We have international students who have chosen to complete their study in Australia and also welcome students who wish to study for just 6 months or a year.
The city of Adelaide is one of the world's safest and most liveable cities. Wilderness School is located just ten minutes from the centre of the city. Located on the school grounds, the Boarding House provides a friendly, safe residence for both local and international students.
The Boarding House provides an exceptional standard of accommodation with newly refurbished bedrooms and bathrooms, spacious, modern indoor and outdoor recreation spaces and access to the latest technology. Keen to make our international girls feel at home, the Boarding House chefs enjoy preparing traditional style foods. The chefs encourage the international students to be involved in planning the menu and many of the international girls take pleasure in sharing their local recipes and helping in the preparation of some meals.
The Boarding House staff and local boarders are encouraged to learn about, respect and share the cultural backgrounds of our international students and we encourage our international students to visit Australian families and local attractions during exeats and holidays.
We appreciate the huge adjustment required to live and learn in a new country and the importance of our Boarding House having a true sense of home for our international girls. The Boarding House offers accommodation to international students over exeat periods so the girls do not feel pressured to find alternative accommodation throughout term time.
