The students have access to the support of 7 full-time International Department staff including 1st language Korean and Chinese counsellors. In addition these is a dedicated common area for International Students. 

The community

The students mainly live inside a zone that has been created around the school centred on the areas of Devonport, Takapuna and Milford. Students who reside inside this zone have absolute right of entry into the school. It is therefore a community school and many of the students are the third or fourth generation of their family to have attended.
