NZQA - Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students

This document safeguards you and is designed to ensure your journey in New Zealand is safe.
  • You will be living in homestay if you are not with your Mother or Father.
  • We expect that all International students are made to feel safe and secure
  • You have a dedicated staff member to help you at all times.  Jenny is on call for you 24 hours of every day.
  • Living in a homestay will improve your conversational English
  • Help in the house is expected. This may involve clearing away dishes from the dining room table, stacking the dishwasher, keeping the bathroom tidy - and keeping one’s room tidy
  • Speciality dinners will not be cooked every night but the host family will try to accommodate the student’s preferences within reason
  • Most of our homestay families are within walking distance to our school.  We also have school buses if you wish to live further in the country.
  • The Internet is to be used for homework or contacting parents back home. Further use can be decided with the family
  • Your host family will treat you as their own daughter and will welcome you to their family and home.
