We're here to help.
Director of International Students
Director Mr Marcelo Carneiro is responsible for the care and support of each student. He coordinates all aspects affecting international students to ensure a consistent and high-quality service. As well as providing counseling and guidance, Marcelo assists with everything from enrolment to visa applications and regular communication with parents and agents. He is responsible for the careful selection of homestay families and ongoing liaison and support for them.
International Administration and Homestay
Jane Wilkinson inspects prospective accommodation, interviews hosts and checks references carefully, and assists in day-to-day operations. All successful candidates are vetted by NZ Police as suitable caregivers. Either member of our international team will meet our international students on arrival at the airport and introduce them to their homestay families. All students, their parents, and homestay families have our staff's telephone numbers, so that help is always available.
As well as providing excellent tuition, our ESOL teachers are committed to the care and happiness of the international students. They tutor each student for one or two hours each day and their personal warmth and enthusiasm helps students feel welcome and included.
