It is our privilege to welcome International Students from around the world and help them get the most out of their time at Orewa College.
International Students have different reasons for coming to New Zealand. Some attend school for a short time to experience a different culture, improve their English, experience new opportunities and try different school subjects that are not available to them in their home countries like Dance, Drama, Hospitality, and Carpentry. Others come to study and gain NCEA qualifications which can lead to University entrance.
Whatever the reasons we are confident that you will enjoy school life at Orewa College, develop independence and make friends for life. We love witnessing the change and growth of our students.
Orewa is the gateway to the Hibiscus Coast and is famous for its beautiful 3km beach. The town has a very friendly vibe and has a variety of shops, cafes and attractions. There is also a good bus service into Auckland City (37km) and Albany Mall (20km). There is opportunity to further explore New Zealand with Tour Companies who offer International Students weekend trips around the North Island and the South Island during the term breaks.
We are very proud of our school and town and look forward to welcoming you into our warm school community and helping you make the most of your time here.
