The school staff are well aware of the special requirements of International Students and are there to help provide a positive study abroad experience. The student counsellors have extensive experience in guiding students in areas related to study, curriculum planning, academic progress, language, social and health support and vocational direction.
Students study and relax in a safe and caring environment and are encouraged to develop personal values which are consistent with their family expectations and their ethnic or religious backgrounds.
The counsellors have frequent contact with the Universities, Polytechnics, Welfare and Immigration Departments to ensure a trouble-free period of study for the students which will result in each student achieving their best personal academic progress.
Wellington High School has agreed to observe and be bound by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students published by the Minister of Education. Copies of the Code are available from this institution or from the New Zealand Qualifications Authority website at http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/providers-partners/education-code-of-practice/
