We Welcome International Students

International students are warmly welcomed and given every opportunity to grow and develop their English language skills, broader academic studies, as well as social and cultural interaction.

We have a highly experienced English Language Teacher at Target Road School and our ELLs have their own interactive space which is a warm, well resourced learning environment, with the latest technology to support their learning. International students are placed into a mainstream class with students of the same age and they receive an additional two lessons per week in the ESOL department.

The Target Road School ESOL programme provides a comprehensive and interactive learning programme to enhance the English Language Learner’s (ELL) use of English through immersion in the four modes of English of listening, speaking, writing and reading.

The ELLs are given an opportunity to share their culture through song and dance at school assemblies - an occasion they look forward too.


Enrolments can be done in person, see Mathilda Uhrle at the school office to proceed. Below is a link to the enrolment prospectus should you wish to do this before your visit. For further enquires please contact Mathilda at 09-444-8493 or email

Immigration and Insurance

“Most students are not entitled to publicly funded health services while in New Zealand unless they are:

○ A resident or citizen of Australia; or

○ A national of the United Kingdom in New Zealand; or

○ The holder of a temporary permit that is valid for two years or more

If you do not belong to one of these special categories and you receive medical treatment during your visit, you will be liable for the full costs of that treatment.

You must have medical insurance that will cover the cost of medical treatment in New Zealand for the duration of your stay in New Zealand. We also strongly recommend that you obtain insurance to cover your travel to and from New Zealand."
