At Melville Senior High School we have a strong link with many countries. There are opportunities to host students and be an exchange student in other countries. Our exchange links are with China and Italy.
No 7 High School
No. 7 High School is a Specialist Arts school and has a natural link with the high caliber arts programs at Melville SHS. The relationship includes teacher and student exchanges, the opportunity to communicate and share languages plus exhibit each other’s artwork. In 2015 and in 2017, students and teachers went to China to visit our sister school No. 7 High School in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province and there were reciprocal visits from their school later in the same year.

Two Italian exchange students come to Melville Senior High School each July and August. Thanks to our host students from Melville SHS, they have a wonderful place to stay each year. Students can then have a similar experience in Italy over the Christmas holidays.
A tour to Italy has been organised by the keen Italian teaching staff so watch this space for the details.
