Travel in NZ

International students may wish to take advantage of opportunities to travel while they are in New Zealand. The school takes its responsibility for students seriously so we have tight travel guidelines.

Green Bay High School works with a number of excellent tour companies who are specialists in taking high school groups on supervised tours around New Zealand.

Trips range in price from $220.00 for a weekend trip to Rotorua to $2,000.00 for a full South Island trip for 15 days. Our international staff can discuss travel options with students when they are in New Zealand and help them make the most of their New Zealand experience.

Permission

Under the provisions of the “Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students” the school has an obligation to ensure that leave is only granted where it can be assured that the student will be supervised by approved adults and will be living in accommodation that meets the appropriate standard. All leave must be applied for at least two weeks in advance and must include signed permission from parents/caregivers and a completed request to travel form. Leave will not be granted where the agent of a student who is acting as a guardian denies permission.

Students should not be applying for leave for personal travel during school time, unless there is a compelling reason to do so. This could include the visit of parents, an event organized through agents or where they are doing so as part of the activities of a host family, or accompanying an approved school trip.

All travel must be through an approved organization or with a homestay family. If leave is taken without approval or when approval has been denied by the school, this will be regarded as a serious breach of discipline and could involve disciplinary procedures.
