On behalf of the board, staff and students we welcome International Students to our school.  Whanganui City College is a co-educational school situated in the heart of Whanganui City with approximately 330 students.  Founded in 1911, our school symbol ‘Te Kura o Te Manawa, the school with heart’ reflects our school philosophy; students and their families are central to the school community.  We care for and nurture every international student in our school and encourage all students to participate in extra-curricular activities such as sport, music or cultural groups.  We pride ourselves on our warm and friendly school and in providing a safe and welcoming environment for all new students.

We offer complete peace of mind to our international parents.  Our homestay families are carefully selected and look forward to hosting you.  A new, warm family on the other side of the world awaits you.  You will have your own bedroom and typically homestay brothers and/or sisters.  We also offer accommodation in our small, on campus co-educational hostel, Millennium House.

If you require any further information about the College, please do not hesitate to contact the Principal, Peter Kaua, by email or phone:
