Studies of Asia and becoming Asia Literate are priorities at Point Cook College and we support our vision of Creating Tomorrow Today by establishing pathways for students in our increasingly global society.

It is important that every child in the College has the opportunity to become comfortable with diversity and develop the skills to operate effectively across cultures. We are committed to programs that promote our understanding and connection with Asia including the BRIDGE program (connecting students and building relationships across cultures) and the Leading 21st Century Schools-Engage with Asia Project.
