Aspiration | Responsibility | Citizenship
At Katikati College we have deliberately restricted the number of international students to ensure that those fortunate enough to enrol receive the best possible support. Through our Learning Centre, students receive language assistance and are quickly integrated into full school life. Students are selected by our advisors overseas and they visit the school, in the year prior to enrolment, to enable us to ascertain their learning needs as well as academic level. This also enables the student to have an experience of student life here before they commence studies.
Our international student co-ordinator maintains close contact with each student, monitoring progress and ensuring that students are well supported. Regular contact with homestay families also ensures that students are happy and well looked after.
