The school arranges suitable homestays. Our Homestay Manager, Fiona Millar, supervises homestay arrangements and gives assistance as needed. Most students can walk to school from their homestay. Some students can travel by school bus.
Kaiapoi High School’s point of difference is its location. We are fortunate to have urban, rural and beachside options available to our international students.
New students are met at the airport introduced to their homestays and helped choose subjects and adjust to their new school and home life. All students are given an orientation when they arrive at school. They are tested and then placed in appropriate classes. Experienced staff ensure a smooth and successful transition to Kaiapoi High School and the New Zealand way of life.
