New Zealand is a wonderful place to study and Pigeon Mountain Primary School is a signatory to the Code of Practice for International students.
Auckland is a multicultural city and people are generally very friendly and supportive towards visitors. At Pigeon Mountain Primary School, we have an active community and access to help for our new families. We are happy and available to help new students and families make links to support groups and other new settlers to our country. We have access to native speakers of many languages who are able to provide translation support should it be needed. Although New Zealanders are friendly and welcoming, it is still wise to take precautions with your personal possessions, and we are able to provide locked storage for such things when in school. Take time to orientate yourself with the unique features of New Zealand, for instance how cars drive on the left side of the road, and how safe road crossings are used.
