Cairns State High, an International School

Cairns State High School offers both local and international students an educational experience that clearly demonstrates a commitment to internationalism and interculturalism in education.

Cairns High puts into action its definition of internationalism and interculturalism, both inside and outside the classroom through as many avenues as possible. 

The school is committed to, and is actively promoting global thinking and acceptance in students, through the development and/or discussion of:  

  • Ethics - the discussion of substantive matters of principle from multiple perspectives
  • Diversity - the understanding of the histories, cultures, beliefs, values and perspectives of a range of individuals and peoples
  • Global Issues - the understanding of current issues of global significance relating to geopolitics, the environment, health, trade, sustainable development and human rights
  • Communication - development of fluency in another language
  • Service - the development of their disposition to serve the community - local and global - through engagement in meaningful and reflective service
  • Leadership the acquisition and refinement of the skills of leading and following, collaborating, adapting to the ideas of others, constructive problem-solving, and conflict-resolution through experiencing leadership in authentic contexts
