Supporting all students​​​​​​​

The international team supports international fee paying students who come to Paraparaumu College.​​​​​​​ The team is based in the international office, which sits between Te Manawa (the administration block) and A Block. 

During the school day our doors are always open.  Our office provides a home base for international students to come and have a chat, ask questions, or just to relax with friends.  It is always a hive of activity.
