Enwood House

Enwood House is our school boarding hostel that provides accommodation for about 100 girls from rural Southland and from overseas. It is within easy walking distance from the school and enables boarders to get involved in all school activities. During the holidays, international students stay with a homestay family.

Homestay

Our Director of International Students carefully selects each homestay family to suit a particular student. Students have their own bedroom in the family home.

Living with a relative or close friend

Arranged by the student’s family, this must meet the requirements of the Code of Practice. The adult taking responsibility for the student will meet with the International Director and maintain regular contact with her. The student’s parents will sign an agreement indicating that this person has the authority to make decisions on their behalf regarding the student’s welfare in New Zealand.

Please Note: All international students must live in accommodation approved by the School.  No student will be permitted to live in a flat.
