We welcome the diversity that International Students bring to the College. Our International Student Director, ESL Department, Deans and Guidance Counsellors work closely with teachers to support our international students and to ensure their happy integration into school life.

Students are guaranteed individual attention, as classes are small. In addition, tutorial and homework groups are provided to support students' learning. Students also have access to English language support through the ESL Department. Besides small classes and a supportive environment, students have the benefit of excellent up-to-date facilities.

Student Counsellor – when you need support

Betty Lin is one of three Student Counsellors who works with all new international students to ensure they are fitting into the NZ lifestyle. She offers support and advice for students adjusting to a new family and school. Students can email Ms Lin directly to make their own appointments or see the International Staff: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Careers Advisor – to help you plan for the future

The Careers Advisor is available by appointment to all students at any level to discuss their career planning. 

Nurse – when you are not well

Students who report sick or injured to the School Office are cared for by the administrative staff or nurse. If discomfort prevents the student from returning to class a receptionist or the Nurse will call the parent or homestay parent in order to have the student collected and taken home.

Buddies on arrival

During the first week students will meet their teachers and be assigned with a ‘buddy’ to help them settle into classes and find their way around the school. Every student has regular meetings with the International Student Director and Dean as well as any counselling if needed.
