Timaru Girls’ High School welcomes International Students from all over the world. We aim to provide a quality education for each student in a secure and caring environment.
When you arrive in the South Island of New Zealand we will pick you up at Christchurch International Airport and drive you to Timaru. After you have settled in we will help you buy your school uniform, open a bank account and select the subjects you will study at school. The Homestay Co-ordinator will work very closely with you in these first few weeks.
The Dean of International Students will also work very closely with you at school. She will meet with you every week to discuss any concerns you may have with your studies or personal issues. At Timaru Girls’ High School you can board either at the school hostel or in homestay accommodation. We have many high quality homestays and the large school hostel is situated on the school grounds. In the hostel you need to be able to speak in English to both the staff and the girls.
