Ellesmere College International Department

Last week saw the first International student arriving at Ellesmere College in 2023.

Nonoka will stay with Racheal and her family for the duration of her stay in New Zealand. She has already explored some of New Zealand and has had the traditional kiwi camping experience with her host family. 

Nonoka is the first but certainly won't be the last student this year, after a very successful marketing trip to Japan and Thailand at the end of last year. Ellesmere College-Te Kāreti o Waihora will have a stream of international students throughout the year. 

We have also got bookings in the calendar for 2024 and 2025. 

If you are interested in becoming a host family for one of our students please see details below and we can support you through that process.
