Primary School Program (Years P-6)
Primary School (Years P-6) – CRICOS Course Code: 082519A
The EQI Primary School Program is for students who want to come to Queensland
to study in Prep to Year 6.
Students participate in the Queensland primary school curriculum, which is taught
by world-class teachers in small classroom groups. EQI primary schools encourage a global perspective and promote a safe and friendly learning environment for all students. EQI primary school students who are from a non-English speaking background also receive quality English as an Additional Language/Dialect (EAL/D) support, delivered by specialist EAL/D teachers.
This EAL/D support is provided to develop the student’s English language ability to allow them to fully participate in primary classes.
General information about the EQI primary school program can be found
in the EQI Primary School Program (PDF, 2.6 MB) brochure.
