Cultural Immersion Visit

Ten students from Weihai Number 4 High School and Shanghai I&C Foreign Languages School visited Ivanhoe Grammar School for a week at the start of Term 3. During their cultural immersion visit they attended classes with Ivanhoe students and lived with local families in order to prepare them for studying the VCE in China, with the aim of creating tertiary pathways at Melbourne’s leading universities.

Concurrently, four teachers from Shanghai I&C Foreign Languages School are completing four weeks of intense VCE training at Ivanhoe. This is a wonderful opportunity for Ivanhoe staff to engage as global citizens by sharing their expertise and reflecting on their own professional practice. Ivanhoe is proud to be one of the leading schools in this Victorian Government initiative.

Ivanhoe Grammar School has been participating in the VCE Offshore Program for a number of years and delivering the VCE in China with some wonderful results. In 2015 Ivanhoe Grammar School commenced a partnership with Shanghai I&C Foreign Languages School to offer a split high school program.

Students can enjoy the best of Chinese and Australian education by completing preparatory studies and Units 1 & 2 of their VCE in China, before coming to Melbourne to complete their studies and completed their VCE Units.
