At Parnell District School, we welcome students from around the world, including international students. Children are accepted at any level of the school if there is available space in classrooms once provision has been made for all New Zealand resident children.
International Students are taught the New Zealand Primary Curriculum for years 1-8 (ages 5-13). Regular specialised English language tuition in small groups is also available.

The school hosts a group visit each year from Cixi Experimental School from Ningbo, China – our sister school. In this case, students stay with homestay parents during their visit.
All other international students will live with a parent or legal guardian during their time of enrolment at Parnell School.
Alongside the completion of the enrolment form, we do require some other documentation:
- Two copies of child’s passport
- Two copies of parents’ passport – (These must comply with New
Zealand Immigration Service visa and permit requirements)
- Health insurance documentation
- Evidence of your address and that the enrolled child is residing with one or both of their parents
