Jack commenced at Caulfield Grammar School in 2013, entering the boarding house at Year 9. One of the unique programs offered by Caulfield Grammar during Year 9 is the school's International Program that recognises that Caulfield's students are members of a global community. The school's belief is that the most effective means of preparing students with an international perspective is through the extensive study of another language and culture, including immersion in that culture. Year 9 students are able to spend five weeks living and learning at its Nanjing Campus.
"During my 5 weeks in China I had the opportunity to challenge myself personally in a positive and supportive environment. I had the opportunity to study Chinese and immerse myself in the Chinese culture. I had never been overseas before and it was such an eye opening and memorable experience.
My brother Lachlan who is in Year 10 this year also took advantage and experienced the Internationalism Program. He joined the boarding house at Caulfield Grammar School last year and shares my view that the boarding house really is a 'home away from home'. We also really enjoy that the boarding house is on campus and is so close to Melbourne's city centre," he said.
