Code of Practice
Hauraki School has agreed to observe and is bound by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students published by the Ministry of Education. Copies of the Code are available online here (documents also available in Japanese, Korean, Thai, Chinese and Arabic languages).
Most international students are not entitled to publicly funded health services while in New Zealand. If you receive medical treatment during your visit, you may be liable for the full costs of that treatment. Full details on entitlements to publicly funded health services are available through the Ministry of Health and can be viewed on their website at http://www.moh.govt.nz.
The Accident Compensation Corporation provides accident insurance for all New Zealand citizens, residents and temporary visitors, but you may still be liable for all other medical and related costs. Further information can be viewed on the ACC website at http://www.acc.co.nz.

Full details of visa and permit requirements, advice on rights to employment in New Zealand while studying, and reporting requirements are available through the New Zealand Immigration Service, and can be viewed on their website athttp://www.immigration.govt.nz.
