Students who require extra English support may take 4-8 hours of ESOL per week, depending on individual needs. General International students may stay with us for a short-term ‘cultural experience’ or choose to complete their senior high schooling with us. All our international students are placed in a local home stay, usually within walking distance from the school.

Term Two has started and it's great to see everyone back, happy and healthy. We are coming into the winter term but today is crazy warm! Our ESOL class is starting a topic on Fair Trade this week and we will be supporting the Fair Trade Fortnight by holding an Oxfam sponsored 'morning tea' at school next week. We will post photos of our 'Aranui Cafe' we set up for lunchtime.

Hi Everyone. The new school year is up and running and we welcomed new international students from Japan and Korea. Our school is in the process of switching over to Google so I am building a Google Site page for our International Department. Facebook is changing the way pages are managed so I will be using the Google Site instead. It will take some time to load everything up to the site. If you have any suggestions about what kinds of information you would like to see on our new site, please let me know. Our new email address is:

Today is the last day at school for me this year so I just want to say Merry Christmas and wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season. Question: If Santa could bring you one gift from New Zealand, what would you want?
