Code of Practice

“Students leave Waitaki as confident, well-rounded independent young women who can follow their aspirations and make the most of the opportunities in life.”

Waitaki Girls’ High School has agreed to observe and is bound by the New Zealand Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016. To ensure the requirements of the Code are met, our systems are regularly reviewed and checked.

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.
