International Students

International Fee-paying Students:

Whakarongo School has had an International Programme since 2018, and provides a welcoming environment for students from different cultures. We welcome students from many different countries.

We cater for pupils in their first 8 years of schooling. We deliver the 7 Curriculum areas of the New Zealand Curriculum Framework, especially focusing upon Literacy and Numeracy. We offer a wide range of learning experiences, including ICT (Apple) and STEM (Science and Technology). We accept students who wish to immerse themselves in an English speaking environment. All students will be assessed upon arrival as to the most suitable type of programme that will best suit their needs.

English language assistance is available to all International Students depending on their level of competence. Whakarongo School provides intensive English language tuition. Students are withdrawn from their regular class as needed, for specialist English language instruction. We believe that our International students will make very good progress in learning to communicate in English. Prior to acceptance students must indicate their level of spoken English. A letter of recommendation from their current school would be very useful.

It is important that students have a genuine desire to learn. They must have a good level of conduct, attitude and attendance at their current school.

More information regarding the school and the fees are in the documents at the bottom of this page.  Please feel free to download them.
