Methven Primary School is a signatory to New Zealand’s International Learners Code of Practice and accepts fee-paying International Students. We welcome the opportunity to host International Students at our school, recognising the richness that students from other countries add to our understanding of the world.

Methven Primary School is an exciting and vibrant place where children learn in a positive and supportive environment. Students experience a well-balanced and rich variety of learning experiences.

Within our rich and broad curriculum there is a belief that being able to read, write and do maths successfully is at the core of a child’s learning needs. Our teachers are committed to providing stimulating learning activities both inside and outside of the classroom, we are increasingly using our local environment and resources as teaching and learning tools.

Our MPS STARs are at the centre of our Vision for teaching and learning. Being Sporting, Trustworthy, Accepting & Responsible are the personal qualities we believe will ensure children learn, work cooperatively and play alongside each other successfully while making pathways to the stars.

Methven Primary School is a signatory to the Code of Practice and accepts fee-paying International Students. We welcome the opportunity to host International Students at our school, recognising the richness that students and their families from different countries add to our understanding of the world. We only accept a small number of international students to ensure that each student settles quickly in school life, and students are encouraged and supported to participate in the full school curriculum. Students are offered extra English as a Second Language (ESOL) support, which varies depending on the needs and level of the student.

Methven Primary School

  • prefers that students are enrolled at our school for at least one term
  • will not accept enrolments under two weeks (due to unexpected in-zone roll increase)
  • does not use agents

  • does not cater for students living in home-stay arrangements; and
  • all international students must live with at least one of their parents/legal guardians, and not a designated caregiver
