Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students

According to the 2012 Global Peace Index, New Zealand is the 2nd safest place in the world to live (after Iceland). Even though it is safe here, the New Zealand Ministry of Education has created a Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students, something which most countries do not have. Parents of our international students can feel safe knowing schools must follow strict rules with regards to international students.
