International Fee Paying Students
Lynmore Primary School accepts applications from foreign fee paying students who are primary school age (5-11 years) and will be living with a parent. Acceptance of these students will be at the discretion of the Principal and Board of Trustee.
We hold a Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students which enables us to enrol a number of students who are residing with a parent in NZ.
Copies of the Code are available from the New Zealand Ministry of Education website at www.minedu.govt.nz/international.
Students must hold a current student visa before beginning school.
We have a specialist teacher who will assist with teaching English to non-English speaking students. When they commence at our school each student will be assessed as to the level of English tuition they require.
International students are usually placed in the same year level for their age and are involved in the day to day learning of that class. They will be withdrawn as necessary for extra tuition from our specialist English teacher (ESOL).
Students are required to wear our school uniform whilst they attend Lynmore Primary School and must abide by all school rules.
Fees are set at $3,000 per term or $12,000 per year. One term is the usual minimum enrolment time to ensure stability for the class.
We do not pay agents fees.
