International Students


Tauranga Primary School welcomes International students as part of our school community.

International students are placed in mainstream classes across Years 1 to 6, as appropriate to their current learning level, and will learn alongside New Zealand students of similar age. We provide English as a Second Language (ESOL) teaching in small groups. Every International Student will receive ESOL lessons during class time each week, the nature of the lessons are developed to best meet the individual learning needs of each student.
