From the Director of Inte​​​rnational Studies 

Welcome to Earnshaw State College

I am proud to present Earnshaw State College as place of study, experience and opportunity in sunny Brisbane, Australia.

My name is Jacqui Smith and I am the Director of International Studies coordinating international principals, teachers and students from their exciting arrival to teary departure.

I wear two hats at Earnshaw State College as I am also the mother of three students studying at the college. So why did I chose Earnshaw for my own children?

  • A `state wide’ recognised and acclaimed pedagogical framework which outlines
    how our teachers teach.
  • A college that flows from prep (5 years of age) through the junior and middle years to senior pathways of study (18 years of age).
  • A community that offers a wide range of clubs and extra-curricular activities such as science/ technology STEM, drama, art, triathlon, sporting teams, and dance, just to name a few.
  • Boutique sized college and campus which is large enough to have a variety of curriculum offerings but small enough to care. Students have individualised programs and you are not just a number.

But what would my kids say?

  • They love the Da Vinci Workshop, our technology workshop and creative space with virtual reality and 3D printers. 

For international visitors Earnshaw State College is in an ideal location:

  • Five minute walk to a train.
  • A quick train trip to the city.
  • Five minutes from the highway that connects to the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, both only sixty minutes away.
  • Eight minute drive or twenty minute walk to beautiful Nudgee Beach.
  • Five minute walk to Brisbane’s most significant Aboriginal cultural site, Bora Ring and Nudgee Waterhole, Nardah.
  • Three minute walk to Australian Catholic University. Many Earnshaw programs collaborate our learning with the university.

We invite you to become part of our international family.​
