Code Of Practice
Waitaki Girls’ High School has agreed to observe and is bound by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students published by the Ministry of Education. To ensure the requirements of the Code are met, our systems are regularly reviewed and checked. Copies of the Code of Practice are available from the school or by following this link.

Medical and Travel Insurance
While some agencies will organise insurance for their students, it is important to ensure that cover is appropriate. They must meet the following recommended Code of Practice requirements:
- High sum insured ($1 Million plus)
- Emergency evacuation/repatriation
- Accompanying relative cover
- Personal effects cover
- Personal liability cover
We recommend Uni-Care Travel and Medical Insurance as it is a reputable insurance company based in New Zealand and the policies provide excellent cover for the international students and meet the Code of Practice requirements.
