Each student has an individual programme which is prepared after consultation with the Dean of International Students. Students will go through an Orientation Programme in the first weeks of their first term.
The College expects students to have a hard-working attitude to academic programmes. We encourage participation in all areas of College life including leadership, cultural, sporting and outdoor education opportunities.
International students receive tuition in ESOL for 6 hours a week. Private ESOL tuition may be available outside school hours if a student requires it. The Dean of International Students can advise on this. Private tuition is an additional cost to the student.
Students are expected to do a lot of independent study and homework.
External examinations available to international students include:
- TOEFL (Test of English as a Second Language)
- IELTS (International English Language Test System)
- New Zealand Qualification Authority examinations:
- National Certificate in Educational Achievement – Levels 1, 2 and 3. (See also www.nzqa.govt.nz)
Full College reports are issued to international students two times a year. Copies go to the student’s agency or school system: the expectation is that these representatives send copies to the student’s parents/caregivers
The police are working with the College and the community to keep our kids safe. They will be coming into school on and will be having an assembly in the library with all the senior students.
