Early Bird English and Orientation (EBEO)
Welcome to St John’s Grammar School.
There is an old English saying, “the early bird gets the worm”. While other students are not sure what is happening or when they can travel, we hope to prepare our current and future St John’s Grammar students as “early birds” so you feel more confident and connected. This is why we designed the Early Bird English and Orientation (EBEO) for you.
The program runs as 90-minute weekly sessions from February 2022, with the topics that international students are mostly interested in. For example, living in Australia and Adelaide, how to overcome culture shock, Homestay and boarding houses comparison, how to speak like local, different study skills, etc.
Join our Teaser sessions in November
As an introduction to our future sessions, we invite you to take part in 3 upcoming ‘teaser’ sessions to give you a feel for what our EBEO course will cover. The course is free for our currently enrolled students, however students not yet enrolled at St John’s Grammar are welcome to take part in all 3 of our teaser sessions for $100.
