International Students

Matahui School is an ideal school for international students to gain a real kiwi experience. Our rural environment provides international students with an immersive cultural experience, and an education curriculum that balances academic achievement with a variety of experiences outside the classroom. 

These visits and relationships between Matahui School and other schools around the globe help teach our children about the true meaning of diversity, inclusion and culture.

Matahui School biennial trip to Tahiti

At Matahui School, we encourage our children to experience and appreciate cultures and communities from multiple perspectives. As part of this process, we provide students with the opportunity to travel internationally. 

One example of maintaining global connection is our biennial trip to Tahiti. Students on the Tahiti trip live, speak, eat and stay with French families which brings alive the French lessons and cultural projects they have been learning back at school.

N.B. At present these biennial trips to Tahiti are on hold due to restrictions on international travel because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
