Information for International Students
At Selwyn House we welcome international students and celebrate the rich diversity and global influences they bring to our community. Our international students mainly come from Thailand, Japan, Korea and China.
International students find being at Selwyn House School means being part of a safe and supportive community. The girls learn how to live together in a community, developing self-confidence, independence, adaptability and responsibility along with high academic achievement. We also offer our students a range of diverse opportunities for them to take an interest in. Selwyn House School will prepare your daughter for further study within New Zealand or back in your own country.
There may be many questions you would like to ask. We welcome you to contact us, and if you are able, to come and visit our school at a time that suits you. We would also be happy to send you our Prospectus and Boarding Handbook. Our Principal, teaching staff and students will be happy to answer all your questions about Selwyn House School.
