​Hello everyone and welcome to our JPC International Student Focus Session. Today we will be discussing the ways international students can prepare for when the borders open to Australia. The focus today is on High School Preparation students, that is students who will be studying English language before High School. I am joined by two teachers from JPIC: Mary Gabriel and Inge Foley.
