Churchill Park School has agreed to observe and be bound by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students. Copies of the Code are available from the New Zealand Ministry of Education website at www2.nzqa.govt.nz/tertiary/the-code/
Full details of immigration requirements, advice on rights to employment in New Zealand while studying, and reporting requirements are available from Immigration New Zealand and can be viewed on their website at www.immigration.govt.nz.
ELIGIBILITY FOR HEALTH SERVICES
Most international students are not entitled to publicly funded health services while in New Zealand. If you receive medical treatment during your visit, you may be liable for the full costs of that treatment. Full details on entitlements to publicly funded health services are available through the Ministry of Health and can be viewed on their website at www.moh.govt.nz.
The Accident Compensation Corporation provides accident insurance for all New Zealand citizens, residents, and temporary visitors to New Zealand, but you may still be liable for all other medical and related costs. Further information can be viewed on the ACC website at www.acc.co.nz.
MEDICAL AND TRAVEL INSURANCE
International students (including group students) must have appropriate and current medical and travel insurance while in New Zealand.
School Promotional Videos
Watch our promotional videos below outlining everything our school has to offer. We have it available in three different languages.
Being Part of the School
We encourage all our international students to be part of our school and share their expertise and talents. We have students perform on musical instruments or do traditional dances. And of course, join in with our groups and sports teams
Auralia is an international student from South Korea. She loves skipping, listening to music (especially K-Pop), and our school. She also loves our large fields, our fresh air, and her homestay family.
She finds our bright sunlight challenging and is getting used to applying (and removing) sunscreen every day.
Auralia is missing her family and the variety of food available in Korea but is extremely pleased that her English has vastly improved.
Thank you, Auralia for getting so involved in CPS life. We will miss you but know you will keep in touch when you return home at the end of the year. Your skipping is amazing!!
Learning from our International Students
Our international students join us to experience a different culture and way of learning here in New Zealand. We also benefit from them sharing their culture with us as well.
A demonstration of the Guzheng, an ancient traditional Chinese zither, being played by one of our international students, complete with traditional costume, is an excellent example of this cultural sharing.
