International Students

We are proud of the many opportunities we provide to our International students.  We are enriched by the diversity different cultures bring to Takapuna Normal Intermediate School.

All international students are assessed on arrival and are fully mainstreamed into our classroom programme. Students depending on English ability are able to access additional ESOL help as they need it. Our peer and buddy system support is designed to help all students quickly settle into their new environment and feel part of our school family.

We would like to extend an invitation to all parents who may wish to visit our school before and after enrolment to see our school in operation.

If you have any enquiries or would like further information, please call the office on +649) 4893940 or email our Director of International Students Lara Kim
